Abstract:

Teachers throughout the developing world, particularly those in remote or rural areas face multiple challenges, including lack of access to adequate training and professional development opportunities. Because of the ubiquity of the technology, the goal of this paper is therefore to examine the potential of radio as a low-cost, high impact tool that can be used for supporting teachers in their professional duties.By comparing research literature both from the developing world, but also research on distance learning from the developed world dating back to the early- to mid-XXth Century when radio was the most important from of electronic media, this paper seeks to establish a series of lessons learned and best practices. Moreover, it explores new possibilities for distance learning via radio by examining how it might be paired with other ubiquitous technologies, such as cellular telephony.
