Abstract

The principal purpose of this quantitative descriptive survey research was to assess the capability of Cookery students towards blended learning by determining their internet accessibility profile and readiness for online demonstrations lectures. The participants of this study were the 50 Senior High School Cookery students at Carmen National High School currently enrolled in the first semester of S.Y. 2021-2022. Given their limited population, they were all selected as the study’s respondents through the complete enumeration method. The study’s results revealed that most of the students used Piso Wi-Fi Vendo and mobile broadband connections as their types of internet connection used at home. Most of them have their smartphones, usually spending one to three hours doing online activities. Meanwhile, regarding students’ readiness for online demonstration lectures, the respondents have high internet self-efficacy and attitudes towards online learning. Nonetheless, the results did not deny that most students have moderate internet availability. These findings suggest that the students are initially ready and capable of blended learning in TVL classes, specifically in utilizing online demonstration lectures. This positive inclination among the respondents is evident since their strand as a vocational course requires more practical training and performance-based activities. Reading materials and modules are not sufficient to fulfill technical vocational students’ practical knowledge and skills. They need supplementary instructional materials, such as online demonstration lectures, to help them appropriately demonstrate learning competencies.
