Abstract

This   study aimed to  identify the level of teachers’ readiness in implementing the 21st century learning; determine the relationship between teachers’ demographic profile and level of understanding 21st century learning; determine the difference between Bay and Los Baños districts teachers’ readiness; and design a training program for teachers. The respondents were the regular/permanent senior high school teachers of the Department of Education  in the said districts, School Year 2019-2020. The teacher-respondents were from three and six public senior high schools from Bay and Los Baños, Laguna, respectively; adopted questionnaire and   used simple random sampling technique. Findings, reveal that the level of teachers’ readiness  was high but  they still  need professional development in order to:  increase the knowledge  about 21st century learning; assessment of  students, use  technology as a tool in teaching; and have advanced training on different strategies  in handling 21st century students. The teachers’ profiles such as sex, age, teaching position, years in service and educational attainment influenced the level of teachers’ understanding in implementing the 21st century learning; while there is no difference on teachers’ level of readiness between the Bay and Los Baños districts. Hence, a comprehensive training program is recommended to enhance teachers’ professional and technical skills.
