Views: 568

Education Development Centre (EDC), As part of a creative pilot project, has distributed iPods to sixth grade Zambian teachers experienced with EDC's interactive radio instruction (IRI) and trained them in their use.

The initiative is to enhance professional training in mathematics, science, and English.The iPods are loaded with the IRI lessons as well as with audio and video training materials designed to support teachers in their presentation of complex topics. The iPods bring teachers enriched professional content right in their hands, in their classrooms, when they need it. Using the iPods in combination with a foot- or solar-powered generator and a set of speakers, the teachers can also broadcast the IRI lessons without being tied to the radio broadcast schedule.
