In its bid to complement classroom teaching, a non-governmental organization, Teach for Nigeria, has unveiled a radio programme for nursery and primary school students in Ogun State.
The Chief Executive Officer of the NGO, Miss Folawe Omikunle, at a virtual inauguration of the radio programme, said this was to ensure that learning continued for students within underserved communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The school radio station is an alternative and a new learning method designed to create interactive educational content.
“The interactive education content would be done via radio and print materials for marginalised students, who live in communities without access to technology and connectivity,’’ she said.
Omikunle added that the radio school programme was aimed at supplementing, improving, and enhancing students’ learning outcomes in low-income communities.
“Our programme would deliver educational content for students in the nursery and primary school in subjects such as numeracy, literacy, and STEM.
“Our radio school programme would launch first in Ogun through Ogun state Broadcasting Commission and Sweet 107.1 FM from January 18,’’ she said. The Ogun Commissioner for Education, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu, applauded the organisation for changing the wave of teaching and learning in the state .
