Chukki Chinna Interactive Radio Instruction programmes

Description of the product/project
The Chukki Chinna Interactive Radio Instruction programmes have been developed by the Education Development Center (EDC), a non-profit organisation, for a project titled ‘Technology Tools for Teaching and Training’ funded by the dot-EDU co-operative agreement initiated by the USAID and part of the DOT-COM alliance.
These have been developed in the local language, i.e Kannada for classes 4 and 5 for mathematics, social studies and science and are broadcast on All India Radio in the forenoon to enable the teachers and the children to listen to them and do the activities in the classrooms at the time of the broadcast itself.
The evaluation of the impact of the programmes is being done in the 340 project schools in Karnataka very intensively. An important feature of these Chukki Chinna IRI programmes is that they are geared towards addressing not only the learning gains among the students but are also very potent tools for teacher training, as the technique is highly activity based, and facilitates active learning during and after the broadcast of the programmes.

Description of the product/project
BookBox is a ‘JukeBox’ of edutaining and multilingual “animation-books”, for distribution on electronic (TV, radio, VHS video) and digital (internet, DVD/VCD) media.

BookBox was born with the vision of integrating “books” into the lives of children through the media already in their lives and in their languages.

BookBox is currently producing children’s “animation-books” from original and public domain stories. BookBox plans to distribute content globally in as many languages as there is a need and demand for. This will include all major languages of the world and also many minority languages.

While BookBox promises to take care of major languages, it wants to tie up with various groups around the world that are interested in books in their language(s). For example, these groups will do the translation and narration of existing stories on BookBox, send these elements to BookBox, and BookBox will put the elements together to make the stories available in even relatively minor (but important) languages.
