With the internet containing a whole lot of information to help improve people’s lives, there is now a website that specifically gives educators up-to-date and relevant information to be better at their craft. The Be Better Philippines has recently been launched with the intention of helping educators to sort through the information that they need in such a short time and in a convenient manner. Saint Mary’s Publishing Corporation (SMPC) president and founder of the Be Better website Jerry Catabijan revealed that the limited time that people have to sort through the various information materials online and the need for a specialized online resource site for teachers served as the inspiration for putting up this website. “Here, teachers can read up on a lot of practical articles that can help them become better educators, plain and simple” Catabijan said.
Be Better is envisioned to be more than just a learning resource for teachers. It epitomizes its founder’s vision of better education for all. The website name serves as an acronym for what it intends to achieve: “Better Education Thrives through Endless Reading.” Catabijan puts his almost half a decade of experience in the publishing field together with education expertise of the website’s editorial team in this website. Visitors of the website can regularly get their dose of learning from sections such as: “Feed Your Need to Read” for a recommended book list, “Shaping the Self-Learner” for tips on stimulating children’s thirst for knowledge, and “Be Better Spotlight” for features on notable personalities in the field of education. Catajiban further shares his plans of growing this website, “learning is an endless topic, so what you see now is just the start. We plan to grow the site and hopefully reach a wider audience.”
With such ambitious plans of growth, the Be Better website will truly serve as a steady learning companion for educators and everyone who is interested in learning more about education.
