The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in history, affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in more than 190 countries and all continents. Closures of schools and other learning spaces have impacted 94 per cent of the world’s student population, up to 99 per cent in low and lower-middle income countries, (United Nations, 2020). This descriptive-survey design was used to ascertain the Learning Delivery Modalities and Information Communications Technology (ICT) Capability of Araling Panlipunan Teachers in the First Congressional District of Iloilo, Philippines for School Year 2020-2021. The respondents of this study were chosen using a purposive sampling method. Teachers who are teaching Araling Panlipunan subjects were automatically included in the sample size regardless of their qualifications and length of service. This study used a researcher-constructed questionnaire checklist validated by the panel of experts and subjected to reliability testing. The data gathered were analyzed using frequency count, rank, percentage and mean. For inferential statistics, the researcher used SD, Mann-Whitney U-test, Kruskal-Wallis H-test and Chi-square. The result revealed that regardless of sex, age, civil status, educational attainment, and length of service, the Araling Panlipunan teachers have common learning delivery modalities as follows: “access social websites like facebooks, twitter, etc”; “ask assistance from colleagues via email, telephone, text messages”; “prepare reports and documentation for presentation”; “message the learners through text messaging and messenger”; “use flash drive and computer based applications”. In addition, as to ICT capability recorded a very high capability regardless of age, sex, civil status, educational attainment and length of service. It also found out that there is a significant difference on learning delivery modality and ICT capability of Araling Panlipunan teachers. Furthermore, the researcher recommends that government through the Department of Education and other donor organizations should step-up efforts aimed at providing computers and other ICTs in the different Secondary Schools in the First Congressional District of Iloilo.
