Abstract
This qualitative-phenomenological study determined the lived experiences of participants on the learning delivery modalities. It comprised of fifteen (15) participants selected using a purposive sample technique, with five (5) parents and five (5) students in a virtual in-depth interview and five (5) public elementary teachers in a focus group discussion. The data analysis employed data coding and thematic analysis. For the parents and students, there were issues emerged in the problem namely: difficulties in adapting the learning modalities; preference to one learning modality; problem on internet connection. Meanwhile, for the teachers, issues emerged namely: problems in adapting new learning modality; inadequacy in production in instructional materials; observance to COVID 19 health protocols. To address the issues, parents and students mentioned ways: securing stable internet connection; having constant communication with teachers; ensuring provision of resources and communal support; asking help from family members to understand the lesson; adapting time management skills; adapting the modality applicable in one situation. While teachers also pointed out ways: Engaging in activities preparatory for various teaching modalities; receiving support from others; keeping constant communication with parents; managing time efficiently. They also cited insights they could share to others. For the parents: emphasis of parent’s role in the new normal education; parents’ preferences of face-to-face instruction; high regard with the new normal initiative in education. For students: development positive learning habits; improvement of the mechanism of the new of learning; adaptation of positive perception towards new mode of learning. While for the teachers: provision of learning resources; flexibility and adaptability of teachers; importance of educational training for teachers; decongestion of school works. The results were significant to public school teachers, parents, students, DepEd officials, administrators and future researchers to give awareness and best practices to have quality education utilizing the different learning modalities.
