(KCFI) continues to reach more and teach more through its “#SchoolAnywhere” campaign, which aims to make learning and education more accessible to Filipino students and teachers whenever and wherever they may be.
Two schools, one in Sultan Kudarat and the other in Quezon, shared with their learners the joy of learning with Knowledge Channel video lessons. In Brgy. Kulaman in Sultan Kudarat, teachers from Gapok Central School launched “Kabayo ni Juan 2.0” to teach and deliver reading resources to the mountainous regions with the help of an unusual companion—a horse!
“Ang ‘Kabayo ni Juan’ ay isa sa mga ginagawa naming hakbang upang maipagpatuloy ang edukasyon ng mga kabataan, lalo na ang mga nasa kasuluk-sulukang bahagi ng aming lugar,” said Romel Lotilla, principal of Gapok Central School.
The “Kabayo ni Juan” program is designed to teach children how to read with the help of parents and volunteers and various learning resources. Among these resources is the Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library (KC PML), an external hard disk drive loaded with Department of Education-aligned curriculum-based video lessons, e-modules, e-session guides and other related materials.
More than 1,000 kilometers away, in Guinayangan Elementary School in Quezon, a Grade 3 class started off the school year by watching “Wikaharian,” a series for Filipino reading, on the school’s Knowledge TV.
Whether in a classroom in Quezon or in the mountains of Sultan Kudarat, KCFI’s Knowledge Channel is there to help bring “#SchoolAnywhere.”
Knowledge Channel is on air via satellite and cable, free TV on A2Z from Mondays to Fridays, 7 a.m., and on Kapamilya Channel every Sunday at 7 a.m. Knowledge Channel video lessons are also available on the Knowledge Channel website, Facebook page, YouTube channel and iWantTFC. Offline video lessons can be accessed through the KC PML and Knowledge Channel TV.
