Learning with community media: stories from the Commonwealth and Latin
Pringle, Ian; Mittal, Ekta; Valdés, Mónica / (eds.)
Vancouver: Commonwealth of Learning (COL), 2012, viii + 148 p.
Aus dem Vorwort:
The experiences detailed in this publication tell us at least two
important things: 1. The models and principles of open and distance
learning have great relevance in media-based non-formal learning for
development; for example, the need for collaboration between media
producers and subject experts, the value of blended approaches, the
importance of assessment and the need for quality assurance. 2. Although
designing and delivering educational programmes is challenging and
requires financial, human and technical resources, content that
addresses the real needs of local populations increases the degree of
participation and ownership by community stakeholders, builds social
capital and contributes directly and indirectly to social and financial
sustainability ... Community media is in large part about dialogue —
between and among citizens and groups from civil society, public and
private sectors. Aptly, this publication is also a space of dialogue,
bringing together experiences from the Commonwealth and those from Latin
America, the cradle of community radio and certainly where it has found
one of its most impressive expressions. This resource provides readers
with fresh insights into the practice of participatory educational
communication using community media, particularly radio and increasingly
mobile devices.
