Radio Enseña is a radio series created by teachers that is transmitted by more than 100 different radio stations in Chile.
Tell us about your idea
Many students in Chile have precarious or no access to internet, specially those in rural or isolated towns. This leaves them with no access to learning material and endangers their right to education. Radio Enseña is an initiative of Enseña Chile teachers, who produce 30 minute audio chapters on subjects like math, history, arts and science that are then transmitted by over 100 local radios all through the country. All teachers work as volunteers and radios donate their time on air. Students are able to interact with Radio Enseña through social media (if they have access) or by calling their local radios. Content is designed for students in from grade 7 to 12.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I'm part of Enseña Chile and have been working in Radio Enseña for the last month. I create content for the arts chapter. I think this idea is a new way of approaching remote learning, one that is not solely based in digital platforms, and that is able to adapt to the context of the most vulnerable students.
