Dean Benigno Agapito Jr. of Mapúa University’s School of Media Studies (SMS) was given the Exemplar Digital Educator Award in the 2018 YAEEHADEMIC Awards held at the UP Cine Adarna, UP Diliman last August 11.
“Learning is not confined within the four walls of the classroom. It can be achieved even outside through digital media,” said Dean Agapito. Dean Agapito’s ongoing campaign, the “‘Sang Minutong Salaysay,” is a testament to his feat wherein media studies students are required to create a minute-long narrative video depicting the struggles, culture, and other relevant issues in the present Philippine setting. Videos created by the students are uploaded on the school’s Facebook page to impart lessons to and spark creativity in its online viewers.
