HP study shows future proofing is the greatest concern among parents

HP Inc. released findings of their survey from the HP New Asian Learning Experience Study which explores how the personalities of parents impact the ways in which they define learning for their children to ensure they have the right skills for their future success.

The official release was presented during the HP New Asian Learning Experience event that was held at the Makati Shangri-La in Makati City last August 15. Present during the event are Pallasena V Viswanath, Philippines Managing Director, HP Inc.; Edric Mendoza, Educator, The Parentschooling Company and Team Kramer compose of Doug Kramer, wife Cheska Garcia-Kramer and their kids Kendra, Scarlett and Gavin.

The survey with 3177 respondents coming from countries such as China, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, India and Philippines was collected between November to December 2018. The study was done with the following analysis: Goldberg’s 50-item Big 5 markers questionnaire; Cattel Horn Carrol Mode of intelligence to determine how parents define learning; Parents perceptions of  E-learning and P-learning; Behaviors and attitudes; and Channels and preferred sources of information on learning.

The key survey findings are as follows:

  • Future proofing children is the greatest concern for all parents.
  • 75% of Filipino parents surveyed say that they worry about the rising cost of living
  • 56% are worried about job security for their kids in the future market. This is why a major sacrifice that Filipinos make for their children is finding ways for them to learn a wide range of skills.
  • 70% of these parents, the highest among all markets surveyed, are willing to use a part of their family’s income in for extra classes or activities in order to give their children an advantage over their peers.
  • Top priority for their child’s future revealed that Filipino parents only want their children to be happy and feel fulfilled.
  • 93% even say that they like teaching their children because it’s the best time to bond, rather than to control their learning.
  • It is revealed that parents believe printed materials will impact their child’s learning more positively than purely digital learning.
  • Parents feel that printed materials are better used for activities related to art (61%), math (60%), and memorization (50%), whereas electronic materials better facilitate learning in music or auditory skills (60%) and art (57%).
  • The study also revealed that most Filipino parents are realists.
