Impact to information computer technology: computer competency of Tinajero high school teachers in Philippines
This study aims to describe the computer competency of high school teachers at Tinajero High School, in the Philippines, during the calendar year 2019. Specifically, it sought to identify and describe the teachers’ computer competency, strengths and weaknesses, and problems in MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Most of the conducted studies focused on the computer competency of the students. Few studies addressed the computer competency level of the teachers. In this digital age, teachers are not exempted on learning he Microsoft application. Sooner or later, the world will be embracing a mode of instruction that uses more of computer than of those traditional ways. This study used a descriptive-survey type of study and a validated competency test from Module quizzes from Innovate: A Mentor’s Guide to ICT Foundation Competencies by Microsoft Philippines. Findings showed the teachers are highly competent on MS Word, competent on MS Excel, and MS PowerPoint. Insufficiency of the computer equipment was identified as the main problem. It is therefore recommended to further strengthen the ICT capability training being given to the teachers so that technology will be maximized in making the educative system more impactful to the learners.
