Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Doki offers fun characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses (therefore offering a broad representation of possible at-home-viewers). The team is supportive of one another and the "world" of Doki and its characters reflects the media landscape of today's child. Although the most supportive programming involves the audience through presentation of material in a way that demands intellectual interaction on the part of the viewer (i.e., encouraging the viewer to assist on -screen characters to solve problems), and this series might benefit from this type of "interaction," Doki does offer enthusiastic characters, real questions, and an "arguably" realist presentation of discovery. Combined, these elements will keep children engaged and support their learning. This program is aired on the station's tertiary digital stream 21.3.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Doki offers fun characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses (therefore offering a broad representation of possible at-home-viewers). The team is supportive of one another and the "world" of Doki and its characters reflects the media landscape of today's child. Although the most supportive programming involves the audience through presentation of material in a way that demands intellectual interaction on the part of the viewer (i.e., encouraging the viewer to assist on -screen characters to solve problems), and this series might benefit from this type of "interaction," Doki does offer enthusiastic characters, real questions, and an "arguably" realist presentation of discovery. Combined, these elements will keep children engaged and support their learning. This program is aired on the station's tertiary digital stream 21.3.
