Experience + Learn / Educational Media / Accessible Online Learning: Personalized Access to NSDL, Teachers’ Domain and Access for All standards / Resources for Teaching and Adapting Science Lessons for Students with Visual Impairments Sighted children learn many things through observation of the world around them and by watching the actions of other people. Students with visual impairments do not benefit from this incidental learning and require more direct instruction and hands-on experiences to develop a complete picture of objects and concepts.

Some of these beings originated from other Southeast Asian countries especially Malaysia and Indonesia, like the Tiyanak and Manananggal. While others told by the Spaniards to scare the Filipinos to go out at night, like the Tikbalang. But some of them are uniquely ours. Actually the 30 more creatures I said are still not written or known by the urban peoples.
