Knowledge Channel, the first and only curriculum-based educational TV channel in the Philippines, marked its 18th broadcast anniversary by gifting 18 public schools in Laguna with multimedia kits last December.

 

 

The 18 multimedia kits, each of which includes a 48-inch TV set, a speaker set, and a Knowledge Channel portable media library, were given to representatives of the school in the Department of Education (DepEd) division headquarters in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

 

Teachers at each of the schools will also be trained to maximize the use of multimedia in the classroom through LEEP or Learning Effectively through Enhanced and Evidence-based Pedagogies, a teacher-training program developed with Dr. Fe Hidalgo, former Secretary of the Department of Education, which Knowledge Channel has employed in its previous beneficiary schools.

According to Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc.’s (KCFI) president Rina Lopez Bautista, partnerships with local government institutions across the country help Knowledge Channel in achieving its mission to uplift the quality of education of Filipino learners through curriculum-based videos, online games, multimedia resources, and professional development programs for teachers and education leaders.

 

“With the support of private institutions, civic organizations, schools and LGUs like Sta. Rosa, KCFI can definitely reach more and teach more learners,” she said.
