Knowledge Channel’s MathDali took home “Best TV Show of the Year for Education” while its host Robi Domingo was named “Best TV/Social Media Personality of the Year for Education”.
MathDali, produced by ABS-CBN and Knowledge Channel Foundation in 2017, aimed to help Grade 4 Filipino students face their fear in learning math through easy-to-understand video lessons hosted by Kapamilya stars Robi Domingo with math “barkada” Igi Boy Flores, Vic Robinson, and Joj and Jai Agpangan. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Knowledge Channel re-launched MathDali as a livestreaming show on Facebook Live and on Kumu’s School at Home block every Wednesday at 11 AM after Kuya Kim’s Knowledge on the Go livestream.
MathDali host Robi Domingo was ecstatic to receive back to back awards. “I just want to thank Biyaya ni Juan for this great recognition… despite of what happened to our network, [we] never stopped and went back to our promise which is to be always ‘in the service of Filipino’ no matter what,” Domingo said.
In a social media voting system done by Biyaya Ni Juan, MathDali bested 4 other educational shows while Robi was nominated along with Coach Lyqa Maravilla (who also hosts a livestream show on Knowledge Channel’s Facebook Live and on School at home on Kumu), Dr. Winston Tiwaquen, Drew Arellano, and Joyce Pring. “I really want to congratulate our fellow nominees we have here because we appreciate all the people who continuously make educational platforms available especially for the youth,” Domingo added in his speech.
Biyaya Ni Juan is a a youth-led non-profit organization based in the Philippines which aims to help the Filipinos one at a time through the collaborative work of youth volunteers.
