With an estimated 90 percent of all students unable to attend school in person because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries are using distance learning methodologies to reach all their students. Interactive audio instruction (IAI), a technology pioneered by EDC, is one such method.
Since the mid-1980s, IAI has been used to deliver high-quality education to students in impoverished and remote communities around the world. In an IAI classroom, children interact with each other and with their ‘audio’ teacher during each broadcast.

The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
