“So I thought...how can I help here? So that’s what led me to create an online resource site that will cater to teacher solely. Here, teachers can read up on a lot of practical articles that can help them become better educators, plain and simple,” says SMPC President Jerry Catabijan.Belonging to a family of textbook publishers, they have been in the business for over 47 years already. So it's not surprising anymore when he started www.better.com.ph last year.
The word “better” in Be Better is an acronym which stands for “Better Education Thrives Through Endless Reading.” Be Better shares free articles on a number of topics such as teaching tips, book features, and profiles on writers and educators. The editorial staff itself has teachers in its team.
One of the features entitled “Develop the right learning mindset in your students,” discusses how teachers have to ensure their students possess the right learning mindset to better absorb the lesson.
Improved Teaching Through Online Learning
Another objective of Be Better is to become a beneficial resource material for teachers to improve their craft.
The regular sections on “Feed your need to read,”“Shaping the self-learner,” and “Be Better Spotlight,” intends to do just that, and more. There are also plans to grow the site to reach a wider audience.
