Videos for 21st Century Teachers

Prior to the pandemic, VGI had already shown support to the Department of Education's (DepEd) call to improve the quality of teaching that meets the needs of ASEAN integration, K to 12 education system, and other emerging global learning frameworks. When the pandemic affected the education setup, VGI rose to the occasion and maximized its digital platforms to assist public and private school teachers as they transitioned to online teaching.
Videos for Learners
Other video contents that VibalTV produces are educational videos for students such as Teacher Vibal, 3-Minute Lesson, and Mga Kuwentong Chikiting. The Teacher Vibal and the 3-Minute Lesson videos help students learn school lessons in a fun and interactive way. The lessons on these videos are written and presented by licensed professional teachers, making sure that the lessons adhere to DepEd’s approved curriculum. Teacher Vibal and 3-Minute Lesson videos may also be used by teachers for their lessons.
Teacher Vibal has more than 150 videos posted on VibalTV, while 3-Minute Lessons have more than 40 videos posted on the channel. Videos from Mga Kuwentong Chikiting are based on VGI’s storybooks, Chikiting Books. Currently there are more than 80 episodes of Mga Kuwentong Chikiting on VibalTV’s channel.
A new addition to the channel are short videos from VFI’s tertulia. The tertulia is a special online gathering, where viewers and visitors honor and remember the Vibal matriarch, Mrs. Esther A. Vibal. This is also where VFI launches new books and presents song and dance performances by renowned Filipino artists and groups such as the Sheila Ferrer, Ramon Folkloric Group, and the CCP Dance Workshop.
More than just the growing number of its viewers and subscribers, VibalTV's success is measured by the positive impact that it makes on Philippine education. Teachers become more capable to be masters of technology in order to facilitate more personalized learning experiences for their students through the easily accessible free video content on YouTube.
