  • What will the school year 2021-2022 look like? No face-to-face classes yet for many parts of the country, but the Department of Education NCR team is prepping up for TV-based instruction.  

    DepEd NCR recently signed a partnership with Solar Learning and Thames International School to enhance learning, especially among students in Kinder to Grade 3 levels, with the help of television.

    DepEd NCR regional director Wilfredo Cabral stated, “TV-based instruction is the most accessible, appropriate and responsive learning delivery modality for the first key stage of learning supplemented by printed modules to develop the psychomotor skills of the learners.”

    The partnership will have the Solar Learning production team and DepEd’s content developers working hand-in-hand to produce DepEd-approved TV modules.

    Thames International, meanwhile, will focus on training teachers on how to use the television as an instructional tool. All produced content will be aired on Solar’s digital terrestrial television channel, Solar Learning DepEd NCR Channel (Channel 21).

    Wilson Tieng, CEO of Solar Entertainment, the parent company of Solar Learning, points out how crucial TV-based instruction for families with limited resources. He said the partnership “can alleviate the worry of parents who cannot afford online learning for their young children due to limited resources and lack of Internet connectivity.”

    “This is a great opportunity for us to show that TV is an affordable and far-reaching medium to entertain and educate.”

    Joel Santos, president of Thames International, adds, “This partnership is a holistic solution to the challenges our teachers, students, and their families face. All bases are covered from curriculum development, access via TV broadcast, and teacher training to ensure that our students are able to learn effectively despite the pandemic.”
