Philippines-based Knowledge Channel has partnered with premier institutions in the country, including the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), Department of Education (DepEd), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Banco de Oro Foundation (BDO Foundation), and Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to offer more learning experiences to Filipino youth on its School at Home block.
Following its agreement with CCP in 2021 to help teach students the importance of appreciating Filipino culture and arts, Knowledge Channel airs the classic adaptation of Jose Rizal’s masterpiece “Noli Me Tangere”. Starring veteran actors Joel Torre, Chin-Chin Gutierrez, Manny Palo, Tetchie Agbayani, among many others, the 1993 series adaptation breathes life into Rizal’s historical novel, depicting Crisostomo Ibarra’s pursuits of social change during the time of Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines.
Knowledge Channel has also partnered with BDO Foundation, BSP, and DepEd to help educate young Filipinos on financial responsibility with “Financial Education” which features short video lessons chock-full of basic financial concepts and money-saving tips.
Recently, Grade 7 and 8 students were able to learn various scientific concepts in the 12 episodes of DOST’s “TuklaSiyensya”. With the help of DOST’s array of experts and its innovative mobile science learning facility nuLabs, the show demonstrates exciting ways to teach physics, chemistry, and biodiversity to junior high students through fun experiments and easy-to-understand lectures on scientific facts and principles.
Knowledge Channel is available on SKYcable, Cignal, GSat, SatLite, PCTA cable affiliates, and BEAM DTT.
