Dhuvaafaru Primary School from Maldives on developing their own television station for education continuity
From Shuhudha Rizwan on December 16th, 2020
Dhuvaafaru Primary School is one of the two schools in the island of Dhuvaafaru, in Raa Atoll, Maldives. Similar to all public schools in the country, Dhuvaafar Primary School also began to use online learning for their students when schools were closed due to COVID-19 pandemic. However, it did not take too long for the school management to understand the problems associated with internet connectivity and availability of devices for students to study freely. The school found the solution for equal access to education for all students by setting up their own TV station, DPS Channel. The school established their own studios where lessons were recorded and telecasted to children’s homes through their very own TV channel. Apart from the televised lessons, the channel is being used for multiple purposes including information dissemination, community awareness, etc. This video tells the story of DPS TV channel.
