Duke, Chris, Ed.; And Others
This issue of Asian South Pacific Bureau of Adult Education Courier Service focuses on communications within the region. The first paper discusses development and communication and the training needs for workers in these areas. The next two items briefly address how broadcasting for nonformal education is being approached in Indonesia, which started a pilot project in 1977, and in Thailand, which started a Radio Correspondence project in 1978. The Technical Report of the Seminar on Planning and Management of Mass Media for Nonformal Education Programs in SEAMEO and Associate Member Countries (Singapore, November 27-December 5, 1978) is then reproduced in full. The next article reports progress of the Lingap ng Pangulo sa Barangay, a school-on-the-air program commenced in 1977 in the Philippines. The following three articles are extracts from papers concerning nonformal education broadcasting in Pakistan: (1) description of the Programms for Farmers, (2) evaluation of the results of an ongoing Adult Functional Literacy Project (AFLP) utilizing television at Community Viewing Centers, and (3) a followup of people who undertook the AFLP program. The issue concludes with two articles on problems of obtaining material in Western Samoa and on a recent seminar and workshop in Thailand for senior broadcast managers. (YLB)
