Title: Influence Of Productive Struggle In Mathematics To The 21st Century Learners
Abstract: This study dealt with finding the influence of productive struggle in Mathematics to 21st-century learners. Furthermore, it aimed to determine the problems encountered by the learners when they are exposed to activities that promote productive struggle. This study utilized the quasi-experimental pre-test post-test design. In this design, two groups of learners are involved: the experimental group and the control group. It has been found out that productive struggle is extremely influential to 21st-century learners for it has helped them to be motivated in managing to improve their skills in mathematics. Furthermore, it was found out in this study that the problem that most of the learners encounter when they are in productive struggle is the fact that they cannot finish the activity within a given amount of time. They often struggle with the idea that they are given a problem to be solved without preview of the lesson.Findings revealed that there is a significant difference in the achievement test scores of the learners with and without activities that promotes productive struggle. In addition, it has also been found out that there is a significant interaction between the achievement test scores of the learners in the experimental group if they will be classified according to their mental capacity. The results only suggested that those subjects who are exposed to activities that promote productive struggle performs better than those who are exposed to the conventional method of teaching even if they are grouped according to their mental capacity. Therefore, independent learning using activities that promote productive struggle is found to be more effective than the conventional lecture method. Hence, the researcher deemed it necessary for school administrators and Mathematics teachers to implement an independent learning strategy using activities that promote productive struggle to increase the achievement test scores of the learners.

Title: Optimizing Blended Learning at Both Ends: Towards A Better Fit for Students, Space And Staff
Abstract: The global coronavirus pandemic shuttered the doors of many educational institutions, and taught students that they could learn from anywhere — but may not want to. Many students want to get back in the classroom, and many others want to maintain a flexible approach to education. A changing relationship to school may be poised to further exacerbate one of education’s largest problems: scheduling. Before the pandemic, utilization of space and capital investments was often not maximized, due to the standardization of classroom sizes and the differing needs of students and instructors. Some classes may only use a small percentage of their classroom, while others build up a waiting list of students who may even need the class as a requirement to graduate. Entire scheduling and registration departments are created to deal with these problems, and the results are not ideal. What happens when students want even more flexibility, and even more variables come into the mix? Predictive, first come, first serve scheduling breaks down even further. New technologies are poised to be able to automate the scheduling problem and get more students and faculty more of what they need and want, even amongst changing requirements. By operating the registration process in a new way — gauging interest in scheduling options before they are finalized, rather than opening on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis to students — options can be compared, ranked and an automated ‘best fit’ schedule can be produced. This can empower a blended learning model, made to work for both the school and the students, accommodating niche interests without decreasing space utilization and thereby maximizing student choice of what they learn and how they learn it. New technologies can bridge the gap between in person and virtual learning, and the concerns of facility planners and their staff and students.
