LGUs can use the TV and radio lessons in schools in their area.
More than 6,000 educational TV and radio shows are ready to be aired all over the country, as distance learning in public schools begins amid the continuing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Programs would complement online and modular lessons, which would be the norm as the government has prohibited in-person classes.
3,120 television lessons and 3,445 radio episodes would be aired in 207 television channels and 162 radio stations nationwide.
DepEd had advised school superintendents and regional directors which episodes should be shown on a given day, at what time slots, and for which grade levels.
The information on these shows should also be included in the weekly learning plan for the students.
DepEd would check if students understood the lessons, adding that teachers would know—when students return their activity sheets—if they have learned what was taught. Parents would also be given contact numbers of teachers if they need to call about their children having difficulty with their lessons.
If parents could not get the self-learning modules themselves, the DepEd would find a way to deliver them to the students.
