Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. begin airing distance education as curriculum-based video lessons on A2Z and Knowledge Channel on SKYcable, Cignal, GSat, SatLite, PCTA cable affiliates, and soon on Beam DTT. The videos cover subjects taught to students from Kinder to Grade 10 and of the Alternative Learning System (ALS). This aims to support millions of Filipino students, their parents, and teachers as they welcome the new school year with continued support in distance education.
Lessons for Grade 1 students start at 6 AM on Knowledge Channel and at 7 AM on A2Z from Monday to Friday. Among the subjects taught are Filipino and English with Knowledge Channel shows “Wikaharian” and “Ready, Set, Read.” Produced under the foundation’s “Basa Bilang” advocacy, these programs aim to help young students to improve their foundational skills in literacy. Other show schedules are available on Knowledge Channel’s official Facebook page (facebook.com/KnowledgeChannel).
Knowledge Channel also prepared shows for its School at Home programming on agriculture and the environment for the second quarter of the school year. Among the slated programs for these subjects are “AgriKids,” an animated series on teaching students basic agricultural concepts, courtesy of the Agricultural Training Institute, and “Puno ng Buhay,” a show co-sponsored by Forest Foundation Philippines in emphasizing the importance of caring for our environment, hosted by Maymay Entrata and Khalil Ramos.
Meanwhile, students and teachers alike can also join School at Home’s interactive livestream lessons on kumu’s SeenZone channel and Knowledge Channel’s Facebook Page every Friday at 11 AM. The weekly lineup includes “Wikaharian Online World” every Monday, “Team Lyqa” every Tuesday, Kuya Kim Atienza’s “Knowledge on the Go” and Robi Domingo’s “MathDali Math Talks” every Wednesday, “Money Lessons with FQ Mom and Sons” every Thursday, and “Art Smart with Teacher Precious” every Friday.
