Freeplay Energy is proud to announce the launch of a new Bluetooth option for the Encore range of off-grid radios.

The Bluetooth feature is designed to support education in off-grid environments by enabling teachers who have downloaded educational content to their mobile phones to then play it back through the radios' speakers. Educators will be able to use a wide range of previously inaccessible content, whilst students will benefit from a broader curriculum, improved educational opportunities and, ultimately, enhanced life chances.

When educationalists in the UK and many other countries speak of exclusions, they are referring to students who have been asked to leave the classroom, usually as a result of their behaviour. Every now and again, there is a public outcry about the number of UK students being excluded, with records for 2014-15 showing 5,800 students were permanently excluded and a whopping 302,980 students were excluded for a fixed term.

The benefits that radio can deliver for remote, often off-grid, communities in developing nations are well documented.

For example, thanks to the dedicated work of the UN FAO’s Dimitra project and its Community Listeners’ Groups, women in the DRC and Niger are having an increasing influence on their communities’ futures and on their own roles within them. The listeners’ groups enjoy strong links with local broadcasters and have been able to develop two-way communications routes which allow for the sharing of knowledge and experience, and joint problem solving.
