and Sun Life Financial Philippines recently turned over to the Department of Education (DepEd) 10 new episodes of “K-High” for algebra.
“K-High” is an original production of KCFI, coproduced with Sun Life Financial Philippines and Sun Life Foundation, that aims to bring real-life perspectives in the application of math and science subjects. DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said that the best math and science classes are those that bring into the classroom experiences from real life.
“The difference is in the perspective we present the subject matter,” Luistro said, sharing that in his rounds in some 100 public schools in the country, he saw that there is a big difference between students who learn and students who just listen to their teacher, content to get good grades.
“K-High” follows the adventures of five high school students to demonstrate fun ways to apply science and math lessons in everyday activities. Each episode is unified by a social issue to help develop critical thinking in students.
“’K-High’ is one of KCFI’s major offerings in helping address severe gaps in learning, particularly in math and science. With ‘K-High,’ we’d like students to develop a love for learning and excel in math and other subjects,” said KCFI president and executive director Rina Lopez- Bautista
“K-High” is one of KCFI’s premiere educational programs created to provide learners with more engaging and effective approaches to gaining new knowledge, particularly through the use of educational media. Other KCFI original premiere programs are “K-Hub,” “Agham Aralin,” “Faculty Room” and “Gab to Go.” “K-High” episodes can be viewed on the Knowledge Channel or online at kchonline.ph
