Unit 12 looks at commentaries on sports and special events on. the Radio. It also includes a discussion on light entertainment radio programmes in English.

 

Book 4: Radio and Education

 

The use of Radio for Education has been widely acclaimed and accepted all over the world. The potential writer for Radio educational material is no longer necessarily a professional writer, but someone who has the right information to get across to learners through the medium and who has the ability to find effective ways of doing so. The instructor on Radio needs to express ideas and other educational concepts in a form that has immediate impact on the listener and will be easily understood by him.

In this Block

Unit 13 explains the role of Radio in education- how to decide on your objective and get your ideas transferred to paper.

Units 14-15 deal with Radio broadcasts for Children and School broadcasts.

Units 16-17 deal with Radio and Non-formal Education and Radio and Open learning.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
