Knowledge Channel, AboitizPower lead support for more mobile libraries
Representatives from Baliuag South Central School receive their Knowledge Channel Portable Media Libraries from members of AboitizPower led by (L-R) Eduard Ybarbia, Michael Corpus, and Arlene Lavina.

The Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc (KCFI). partnered with Aboitiz Power Corp. (AboitizPower) and Aboitiz Foundation, Inc.’s (Aboitiz Foundation) business-to-business clientele in providing Knowledge Channel (KC) Portable Media Libraries to partner schools.

These schools were given a KC Portable Media Library — consisting of an external hard drive containing more than 1,500 Department of Education-aligned, curriculum-based video lessons and digital materials — and a 43” smart TV with a built-in Knowledge Channel app.

Along with the tools, in-person and virtual technical training were conducted to help equip teachers in maximizing the learning resources they received.

AboitizPower customer-corporations who contributed to the project were NEO, JTekt Philippines Corporation, Cargill Bulacan, Cargill Pulilan, Pascual Laboratories, Inc., Philippine Resins Industries, Inc. Mabuhay Interflour Mills, Inc., and Embarcadero Land Ventures, Inc.

Meanwhile, partner schools include Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School, Santiago National High School, Baliuag Central School, Rufino A. Cruz Memorial Elementary School, Gat Francisco Balagtas High School, Josephine Khonghun SPED Center, Mariveles National High School Batangas II, and Barangay 17 Child Development Center Day.

“I’m very proud that at this moment our partners are at our side to help our youth… To have these digital learning modalities go into our schools is a very rare opportunity,” Baliuag South Central School Principal III Rosalie S. Santos said in the vernacular. “Because of the Knowledge Channel, visuals and thereby learning are also made more appealing to the kids.”

“Thanks to AboitizPower, this project was able to reach us. The words ‘thank you’ are inadequate for our overflowing gratitude for your support in helping improve education,” she added.

By establishing these initiatives, KCFI continues to be at the forefront of helping improve education by developing educational video resource libraries, as well as enhancing partnerships and programs for teachers and other child development stakeholders. These educators are also able to save time as they are spared the task of scanning books, editing videos, and creating presentations.

"Accessibility to learning is a common challenge across public schools in the country. We thank our partners from various industries and KCFI for helping us leverage multimedia resources and innovative tools to help improve the quality and accessibility of education,” said AboitizPower First Vice President - Head of Retail James Byron Yu.

AboitizPower and its partners continue to support public schools across the Philippines by helping improve the quality of education and welfare of students through greater access to media and technology.
