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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Dive Olly Dive offers a collection of boy and girl characters each with their own unique characteristics and strengths. Skid, although something of a bully, comes around in each episode and is never cruel. The team is supportive of one another and lessons of predicting, considering and discovering are cleverly interwoven into an entertaining storyline. Although the series is standard in terms of storytelling, that is, it does not incorporate some of the elements that we know extend a series' powers in terms of teaching, Dive Olly Dive offers relatable characters and episodes that are clearly created with the intention of supporting a child's learning. In particular this series supports a child's social development and problem solving skills.
