Dr. Wak-wak, please help us!

After a search from Google, Dr. Wakwak is not uniquely Filipino. But the name though, makes the game sound more playful than the English equivalent.

Here’s a description fromĀ http://wilderdom.com/games/descriptions/HumanKnot.html:

Human Knot

  • a get-to-know-you icebreaker
  • involves close physical proximity
  • can be used as a name game
  • helps a group learn aboutĀ  how to work together
  • can also focus on group understanding of communication, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, trust, persistence, etc.

I had my CMSC 21 class do the Dr. Wakwak exercise as reprieve from the semester-long coding work. We had our make up class at the Hadsan Cove Resort, Mactan Island, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

Problem-solving need not be in code.

NSTP

I encountered a lot of questions lately why I’m regularly spotted with throngs of first year students on Wednesdays. When I say that I’m now handling one section of the NSTP-CWTS/LTS course, incredulous looks usually follow.

As an activist, I am exposed to the methods of people’s organizations particularly youth and worker formations so the direction towards community and youth organizing in the new NSTP module in UP Cebu is not a far-fetched task.

As proof though, here are a few pics of our first few meetings.
