Educational Radio: A Review of the Literature.
Grise, Philip J., Jr.; And Others
Radio has been used for educational purposes since its beginning in the early 1920's; the application of radio to the educational problems of the developing nations is not a new concept by any means. Among the uses of educational radio are foreign radio schools, classroom radio uses, "Accion Cultural Popular" (ACPO), and correspondence radio courses. Educational radio for classroom presentation has been demonstrated as effective as television, slide/tape presentations, and other media, and to be cost effective. The great gains in learning shown in radio lessons might be further enhanced by using materials designed specifically for radio use rather than applications of modified scripts from other media. Other areas of need are those of longitudinal studies concerning the effects of radio used over an extended period of time, and studies of single-session attention span of students. (Author/WH)
