e-extension

Hurry...fast!

We remember the story of a man who rode on a horse-drawn cart, settled and closed his eyes to nap for a while. He assumed that the hotel had informed the driver of his destination so he only said, "Hurry and drive fast!" Later he realized they were heading the other way. So, he asked, "Do you know where we're going?" Still driving fast, the driver yelled, "No Sir, but I'm driving very fast!"

It's what we do

Sir Jim: Give example of a topic for your blog...

We: Extension...

Sir Jim: Extension of what?

We: It's what we do...

Funny but this happened during our training on blogging and photography with our resource person Mr. Jaime Ramon 'Jim' Paredes of Apo Hiking Society. We were used to having resource persons who are familiar with what we do that we just assumed the rest would also know, which include Sir Jim.

Nonetheless, let me tell many others who don't know who we are and what we are.

Memories of e

Positive results evoke happy memories.

I was with Meitats when she presented her dissertation on "Learners' Intention to Continue Using ATI's e-learning Program". Why I was there?

Stick-to-e-tiveness. Meitats belongs to the e class. I am immersed in the e program and I cannot miss knowing how we fare in our e efforts. Here's what she presented.

For the second time, "accidentally"

In my blog "Life according to Jim", one of the life lessons I mentioned was 'be accident prone'. I was thinking when would it happen to me, until I read "Not Once But Twice" did I realize that it already did. Photography always fascinates me ever since I can remember. I always look for ways of improving what little I know of this craft.

Life according to Jim

 Trainings for e-Extension Coordinators of ATI are always exciting because they are usually held in different venues. Recently, I have three (3) reasons to be excited: 1) it is held in Coron, Palawan, one of my wish-to-visit-place; 2) it is about blogging and photography, which is one of my most-requested-training since I became an e-Extension Coordinator; and 3) the most exciting is our resource person Mr. Jaime Ramon Paredes, the Jim Paredes of Apo Hiking Society, one of my favorite singing groups of all time.
 

Exploring OA Practices in the Cordilleras: 2nd Bloggers’ Event for Organic Agriculture

Republic Act 10068, also known as the Organic Agriculture Act of 2010, outlines the policy to promote, propagate, develop further and implement the practice of organic agriculture in the Philippines.

Stick-to-e-tiveness

Ever wonder why they keep telling us that we have "a world of our own"? Let me guess.

First guess. Kindly refer to my blog "Bilog ang puso ko". In a gist, we have hearts that beat with an "e." The e is the wind at our backs, the dynamo that sweeps over us. It is what gels us together, making us stick, inseparable.

e-Extension Program in the eyes of a farmer

Recently I assisted the Regional Farm Family Forum (RFFF) in Calbayog City on May 22-23, 2013. Since ATI started conducting RFFF, orientation on e-Extension has always been a part of the affair. This year's orientation, just like in the last three (3) years, was doing well with the usual queries from the audience. However, I was taken aback when a  4-H'er from Biliran province asked, "In your own perception, do you think the e-Extension Program made significant impact in the lives of the farmers?" That was hard.

Phoneless… Anchorless

I lost my cellphone the other day. It was stolen inside my bag while I was walking inside a crowded mall. I was unprepared for the feeling of being unconnected to the real world for even just a short time.

e-Landscaping anyone?

This sign caught my attention during our teambuilding activity at Rosa Farm in San Antonio, Zambales. It was posted atop the entrance of a 50-60 m2 garden planted with various vegetables with a “bahay kubo” in the middle.
