The Department of Education (DepEd) said it was investigating a learning material that went viral online and that carried the instruction that students interview someone from the Spanish colonial period.

“Upon verification by the DepEd Error Watch, it was found that the material in question was not developed nor quality-assured by the department or any DepEd office,” the agency said in a statement.

In the learning material, the students were told to “ask a person who experienced the Spanish era” and to “let him/her tell you about how they managed during those times.”

The students were further instructed to gather what they learned from the interview and make a generalization of the ideas, or do a role-play of possible scenes during the period.

The Spanish colonial era lasted for three centuries and ended in 1898.

“Muli naming pinaaalalahanan ang publiko na maging mapanuri sa fake news at iba pang mga ‘di tiyak na impormasyong kumakalat online,” it added.

The DepEd also urged parents and students to report erroneous learning modules to their schools or DepEd Error Watch for immediate action through email at and contact 0961-680-5334.
