Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI), BDO Foundation and Huawei Philippines, in partnership with the Schools Division Office of Dumaguete (SDO Dumaguete), worked together to bring Knowledge Channel Teaching in the New Normal 3 or KC TINN 3 to the teachers of Dumaguete City to further prepare them for the school year.
Around 150 teachers from 10 schools attended this round of KC TINN 3, which was held via Google Meet from Aug. 17 to Aug. 19.
The three-day online training program aims to equip teachers with the knowledge and skills they need not only to maximize and use Knowledge Channel video lessons in their classrooms, but also to create and foster positive learning experiences.
Resource speakers Edric Calma of KCFI, Roseo Caburian Jr. of SDO Marikina City and Dr. Ma. Lourdes Nery-Cura of the National Academy of Sports shared with the participants the information and skills they need to create a safe, fun and effective learning environment through the use of Knowledge Channel.
The training comes with a free Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library—an external hard drive loaded with Department of Education (DepEd)-aligned curriculumbased video lessons, e-games, e-session guides and other learning materials—for each participating school.
The training culminated in the preparation and presentation of lesson exemplars—lesson plans wherein teachers integrated Knowledge Channel video lessons with their topic of choice—and stakeholder engagement plans, which aimed to get schools to think about how to incorporate Knowledge Channel video lessons into their learning continuity plans for the school year and how to better mobilize community stakeholders to help put such plans into action.
“The Knowledge Channel is an angel of DepEd,” said principal Noel Bayno of South City Elementary School during the closing program. “Totally, this webinar is comprehensive but captivating because we did not think that this is an additional task or burden to our loads, but it did enrich our knowledge and increase our desirable quality attributes in teaching and learning.”
