PILOT TRANSMISSION AND OBJECTIVES

The year 2013 to 2014 was devoted to the pilot testing of teaching and learning materials produced and transmission equipment installed, to determine their appropriateness and efficiency before large-scale implementation. Ten schools were initially selected for the pilot project. At the end of the academic year, a study was conducted on the test broadcasting as well as the teaching and learning process and the following observations were made:

1.Pupils became attentive and participated actively in the lesson.

2.Pupils’ interest in the Cafdil program made the children stay in the                              classroom.

3.The CAFDIL project reduced truancy/absenteeism drastically.

4.Over-enrollment in primary one became a problem because more parents were        sending their children into the school.
