Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc. (KCFI)Eleven public schools in Rizal are now connected to Knowledge Channel, thanks to the efforts of the Morong High School Alumni Association Inc. (MHSAAI) and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI). These schools in need of multimedia learning resources are located on the islands of Binangonan and Cardona, and in the mountains and hills of Morong, Teresa, Baras, Tanay and Jalajala.
Each school received a Gift of Knowledge package which included a 40-inch LED TV, a digital terrestrial box and a Knowledge Channel portable media library (external hard drive) loaded with more than 1,000 curriculum-based videos, games, session guides and other learning materials.
KCFI and MHSAAI also provided training on learning with technology to the heads and teachers of the recipient schools.
Edric Calma, KCFI director of Operations and president of MHSAAI, said: “This project follows what both KCFI and MHSAAI have been advocating and working hard to accomplish—help prepare the young children for the 21st century by providing them with access to relevant and effective curriculum-based multimedia learning resources and by training their teachers on the best possible teaching strategies so that they (teachers) could help unleash the vast potentials of their young learners.”
MHSAAI has been actively collaborating with KCFI and the Department of EducationDivision of Rizal since 2016. MHSAAI chapters in Northern California and Southern California have provided access to Knowledge Channel, as well as teacher training, to beneficiary public schools in Rizal.
