Knowledge Channel’s “MathDali” took home the Best TV Show of the Year for Education award, while program host Robi Domingo was named Best TV Personality of the Year for Education in Biyaya ni Juan’s Gawad JUAN 2021.
“MathDali,” produced by ABS-CBN and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. since 2017, aims to help Grade 4 Filipino students face their fear in learning math through easy-tounderstand video lessons hosted by Domingo with math barkada Igi Boy Flores, Vic Robinson, Joj Agpangan and Jai Agpangan.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Knowledge Channel relaunched “MathDali” as a livestreaming show on Facebook Live and on Kumu’s “School at Home” block every Wednesday after Kim Atienza’s “Knowledge on the Go” livestream.
“I just want to thank Biyaya ni Juan for this great recognition… despite what happened to our network, [we] never stopped and went back on our promise which is to be always ‘in the service of Filipino’ no matter what,” said Domingo.
In a social media voting system done by Biyaya ni Juan, “MathDali” bested four other educational shows, while Domingo was nominated along with coach Lyqa Maravilla who also hosts a livestream show on Knowledge Channel’s Facebook Live and on “School at Home” on Kumu, Dr. Winston Tiwaquen, Drew Arellano and Joyce Pring.
“I really want to congratulate our fellow nominees… because we appreciate all the people who continuously make educational platforms available especially for the youth,” Domingo added.
Biyaya ni Juan is a youth-led nonprofit organization based in the Philippines which aims to help Filipinos one at a time through the collaborative work of youth volunteers. For more information on Biyaya ni Juan and Gawad JUAN 2021, visit facebook.com/BiyayaNiJuan. (Story by: Michael Ramos)
