Advantages of using the radio

The radio is important in History and Government teaching because of these reasons:

  • It has power to stimulate the learners’ imaginative ability.
  • It provides learners with recent information not available in books.
  • It provides for individual learning and independence in cases where the learners listen to the radio programmes during their free time.
  • It improves learners’ listening skill, which is important in any learning process.
  • Radio programmes can be tape-recorded and preserved for future use.
