My Ship My World Accomplishes 2021 Mission
29 November 2021
In support of the Department of Education’s blended learning approach given the pandemic, PTC-CSJ Foundation produced five short videos earlier this year to serve as supplementary learning materials for Grade 6 students.
The videos, at less than eight minutes each, are part of the Foundation’s My Ship, My World (MSMW) Project. MSMW introduces the world of shipping to young students by integrating shipping-related concepts in the curricula of Science, Math, English and Araling Panlipunan.
The videos featured Jebsen PTC’s four Captains and a Chief Engineer who discussed how concepts such as speed, distance, sound, water consumption, are applied in shipping. The officers also shared their personal experiences as Global Maritime Professionals.
My Ship, My World is adapted from the Adopt-A-Ship Program initiated by the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, CYMEPA. The Adopt-A-Ship Program was promoted by InterManager and piloted by PTC-CSJ in the Philippines in 2017.
In 2018, PTC-CSJ initiated MSMW which has since been expanded by IMO Maritime Ambassador Carlos C. Salinas, in coordination with the Department of Education and ship owners whose ships and Captains participate in the Program.
