The study Development of ICT-Based Environmental Education (EE) Materials which is intended to be utilized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the National Network of Normal Schools (3NS) is appropriate for formal learning of college students, and for use of adults in the community. It aims to heighten awareness among learners about the significance of the environment, the natural resources, and their protection. The Agile approach using Scrum was utilized for the development of materials. It was able to come up with 15 video clips focusing on global warming, planets, ozone layer, ecological solid waste management, water cycle, and the likes. Three (3) interactive games were also developed on Chemical and Physical Change, Work, Energy & Machines and Food Chain. All the materials developed were assessed by two sets of jurors who are experts in content and technical aspects of the topics. Of the 18 materials developed, one (1) material is recommended for discard, thus, out of 17 materials, 13 were evaluated as “Appropriate” and four (4) as “Highly Appropriate” for use. With the positive evaluation of the jurors, the next step is to conduct pilot testing for it to be utilized by the educators in delivering their instruction to increase awareness among their learners about environmental concerns. The ICT-Based EE Materials are packaged in CD form and accessible for download in the web repository site.
