Mr. Pinongcos, as an Intel Teach National Trainers awardee, has conducted trainings for the Intel Teach Training Program at the national, regional, and division levels. The project helps teachers who have little or no computer experience acquire basic technology literacy skills and introduces them to 21st century approaches to teaching and learning. Mr. Pinongcos also serves as an ICT trainer for out-of-school youths and barangay officials in the town of Leganes. One of the innovative teaching approaches he developed is the “Barangay Ko Tipigan Ko” (I care for my barangay), a form of learning that promotes social and community awareness among the students in which they adopt a barangay and conduct an assessment survey on its strengths and weaknesses. The students then present their findings and propose solutions to the different problems they have identified in the community before LGU and barangay officials. Mr. Pinongcos is also an active Extraordinary Minister of the Holy Communion in the Parish of St. Vincent Ferrer, administering to the sick and the elderly every Sunday and feast days.
