A memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed between Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) and LBC Foundation, along with the Department of Education (DepEd), for the rollout of Knowledge Channel Teaching in the New Normal (KCTINN) training program.
The partnership will benefit over 600 teachers and principals from 48 schools in Quirino, Catanduanes, Marawi City, Tarlac, Northern Samar and Davao City.
During the ceremonial virtual MOA signing, KCFI president and executive director Rina Lopez thanked LBC Foundation and the DepEd as they work together in addressing the learning crisis in the Philippines.
“Know that our training program on Teaching in the New Normal will not only benefit the select principals and teachers, but will also help them make a huge difference in the lives of the thousands of students that they serve,” she said.
LBC Foundation executive director Christine Wuthrich said they are eager to work with KCFI in reaching and supporting more teachers.
“Together, our collaborative effort will bring learning to more children in need, giving them the tools necessary to continue to pursue their dreams of a brighter future during these very challenging times,” she noted.
KCTINN for FEU
Additionally, 160 teachers from the Far Eastern University (FEU) Roosevelt campuses in Marikina, Cainta and Rodriguez will undergo KCTINN training after KCFI sealed an agreement with FEU Roosevelt to train teachers and principals on 21st century teaching strategies and pedagogies using Knowledge Channel Portable Media Libraries.
“Through the partnership with KCFI and utilizing its K-12 basic multimedia learning resources, we aim to further improve our students’ learning outcomes in reading comprehension and mathematics,” stated FEU Roosevelt senior vice president Dr. Alma dela Cruz.
Lopez said she looked forward to working with FEU Roosevelt and introducing more interns to the Knowledge Channel Volunteer and Internship Program or KCVIP.
“Bukod sa training, excited din kaming makasama ang inyong teachers at students sa aming volunteer and internship program. From 2019-2021, 21 students from FEU Diliman, Institute of Technology, and Manila have joined us as interns,” she noted. (Story by: M. Ramos)
