TeleBibo is a project created pursuant to the agency’s mandate that is to advocate media literacy among various stakeholders. This is a three-day seminar-workshop that aims to yield the Filipino Nation with Media and Information Literate children that can contribute to the production of quality Children’s Television Program.

In partnership with Laura Vicuña Foundation (LVF), on May 2 to 4, 2017, NCCT was able to gather 83 participants from different LVF chapters in Luzon that participated in the seminar-workshop.

Mr. Ariel Sebellino, the Executive Director of the Philippines Press Institute was one of the resource persons in the workshop. He shared about Language, Communication, Media and Society, Critically assessing Advertisements, Teleserye and Comedy shows and The Virtual Reality, specifically on the ways on identifying fake news.

MTRCB, one of the Advisory Committee of NCCT was also a part of the workshop. Atty. Jonathan Presquito, the Chief of MTRCB’s legal affairs division, talked about “Matalinong Panonood ni Juan at Juana,” and even gave away a free movie pass to the student who answered his question correctly.

Mr. Frank Rivera, a former Executive Director of NCCT taught the participants about conceptualizing Child-Friendly stories and turning those into creative theatrical presentations.

TeleBibo will be catering not only students in the formal education but also out of school and less privileged children nationwide.
