April at the Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) meant continuous efforts to reach more and teach more, sharing the joy of learning with even more communities in the Philippines!
For early childhood development, KCFI trained child development workers and teachers, barangay nutrition, health and welfare workers and parents in Lobo, Batangas and Burgos, Ilocos Norte. The training, while lasting for three days, is being supported with yearlong mentoring, monitoring and evaluation. All the recipient barangays have also been provided with Knowledge Channel video lessons for teaching and learning with threeto four-year-old children.
On this month too, KCFI completed and launched five new episodes of “MathDali” for Grade 1 through its partnership with BDO Foundation and Huawei Philippines.
KCFI is wrapping up production of “Wikaharian” Grade 2, a video series for culturebased learning of the fundamentals of reading in Filipino. The project is a collaboration between KCFI, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the office of Sen. Loren Legarda.
Another series with 65 learning episodes, “Ready, Set, Read!” for Grade 1 is being piloted in Santa Rosa, Laguna. The series will start airing on Knowledge Channel in July 2023.
