FM radio to become tool for education

While FM radio is gaining popularity among the masses, State Institute of Education Technology (SIET) is set to cash in on the FM wave and use it as a learning tool for students in remote areas. The SIET is set to launch Vidyavani, a project that would broadcast education modules for school students through FM radio, from August. This facility will help students in interior areas in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam and Pathanamthitta districts.

"The SIET will provide the content in the form of audio modules, which will be broadcast by community radio services at the respective locations. This will be helpful for those students who are unable to access visual and technological learning tools," SIET director Babu Sebastian said. In the beginning, science and mathematics subjects of Classes VIII, IX, X, XI and XII will be offered in the form of audio modules. In Thiruvananthapuram, the broadcast will be done through DC community radio at KINFRA Park at Kazhakkoottam.

In Kollam and Pathanamthitta, the Vidyavani programme will be broadcast through Radio Benziger and Radio Macfast respectively, which are the local community radios. In Kottayam, it will be aired in association with Radio Media Village in Changanassery. "The broadcast will be done from 7.00 - 9.00 am and from 7.00 -10.00 pm," Babu said. He said that the service will be spread over to all districts in the state by launching new community radio stations using MLA funds and collaborating with the existing community radio stations.

The Vidyavani programme has been designed as a radio skit and the learning part will be part of discussions between the characters in the skit. In addition to science and mathematics, English tutorials will also be provided through the facility. "By this academic year end, all subjects of high school and senior secondary classes will be broadcast through Vidyavani programme," Babu said.
