(MFI) and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI).
The teachers and students of San Jose National High School and Pancol National High School in El Nido, Palawan were grateful for KCFI’s education TV packages which included a television set and a SKYdirect satellite. The packages were turned by KCFI representatives Doris Nuval, School and Community Engagement head, and Ian Gaite, assistant manager for Transmedia.
The teachers and principals were also trained on LEEP or Learning Effectively through Enhanced and Evidence-Based Pedagogies. It was an essential addition in helping teachers upgrade their teaching skills and knowledge and in maximizing the use of Knowledge Channel in their classrooms.
KCFI has been working closely with MFI since 2011 in connecting public schools to Knowledge Channel in Palawan and other areas.
To date, more than 290 schools have been connected to Knowledge Channel in Region IV-B, which includes the provinces of Marinduque, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Palawan and Romblon.(Story/Photos by: Michael Ramos and Stefhanie Sumaya)
