Filipino street games, known as larong Pinoy, are slowly ceasing to exist as technology is rising exponentially, changing the way we live. Due to the rise of technology, children do not play games outside anymore, and according to research, constant use of technology and having more screen time cause obesity and depression.
To fight against the effects of spending too much on cellphones and computers and preserve the larong Pinoy, the National Teachers College Grade 11 HUMMS students organized an event entitled Kilos Kabataan that engaged children to play outside and experience larong Pinoy like older generations.
The grade 11 students, with the help of the NTC Community Development Center, prepared games for the children of Barangay 388 and 390. NTC faculty enrolled in the graduate programs headed by Ms. April Saligumba and Dr. Lilibeth Matira, Graduate School Program Head, also helped engage and entertain the children.
The children of Barangay 388 and 390 are gamed for the challenge to play games like piko, tumbang preso, babuy – babuyan, batuhang bola, and other fun and exciting activities. The children rated their experiences on the activities by posting emojis on the Kabataan kilos wall with happy faces as they went home with smiles and finally experienced the joy in National Teachers College.
NTC, a premier institution under a Yuchengco-Ayala educational partnership, ensures that Filipinos will have access to quality education at a reasonable cost.
