Southern Sudan Interactive Radio Instruction (SSIRI)
The SSIRI programme aims to design, develop, and pilot-test appropriate and
cost-effective technologies that provide learning opportunities for
children, adults, and teachers in southern Sudan. Any school with a radio
can receive and use the lessons, broadcast daily on Sudanese national radio;
however, the project is focusing on 200 schools in 8 counties, providing
supplies, training, and assessment. SSIRI employs a team of 18 Southern
Sudanese educators, scriptwriters, actors, and production staff to develop
100 half-hour programmes for each grade level (grades 1-3). The lessons use
a combination of games, songs, and stories to teach English literacy, native
language literacy, and mathematics. SSIRI aims to reach very remote areas
where educational materials are unavailable.
