One of our students, Arthur Eustaquio created a documentary on what defines Abot Tala which he uploaded on his Youtube channel.
The caption read “This film is dedicated to the Idea of Liberated Learning. And follows the progression of the first Self-Directed Learning Center In Asia called ‘Abot Tala’ it is a Filipino term for ‘Reach for the Stars’. This Production was created by two of the learning center’s members, as the the institution prefers to call them, as opposed to the term ‘students’. They did this out of passion for the Idea of Self Directed learning. And this was their output for their block presentation.”
