DepEd-ARMM launches school on air

Cotabato City (9 December) -- The Department of Education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao has ventured into a mass media strategy to provide functional literacy courses to out of school children in the far flung areas.

Ustadz Nur Pulong, Director, Alternative Learning System, DepEd ARMM said that radio station DXED with a power of 99.7 khz was funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AUSAID) to the tune of Php 1.5 million.

This is part of the Basic Education Assistance to Mindanao (BEAM), a project supported by the Australian government towards the promotion of education in this part of the country. BEAM also assisted DepEd ARMM in the processing ofpermits and licenses to operate the radio station from the National Telecommunications Office.

A tie up with the Philippine Broadcasting Service (PBS) has accorded the radio station an access to programs and other educational services of the government.

The essence of the project lies on the Radio-Based Insruction, a form of distance education/learning utilizing broadcast as an alternative delivery mode of learning.

Likewise, the radio programs will allow listeners to acquire livelihood and vocational skills, functional literacy and relevant information on health and nutrition. (ALS-DepEd ARMM/PIA 2) [top]
