ABSTRACT

In this paper, we describe aspects of the “Media in the Service of Education” project which was implemented based in two (sub) projects “Physics for Everyone: Science Education on the Radio” and “Education News on the Radio”. The project “Physics for Everyone: Science Education on the Radio” proposed to disseminate science education by radio to the public least served by the Internet, and the proposed project “Education News on the Radio” is to share with serving teachers successful experiences of coping with difficulties in learning and performance in the field of exact and natural sciences. In this perspective, the “Media in the Service of Education” project aims to disseminate initiatives to improve the quality (“best practices”) of the teaching of exact and natural sciences, covering municipalities located within a radius of 150 km around Maringá (Paraná State, Brazil), comprising the Metropolitan Region of Maringá and northwest of Paraná State (Brazil). By way of illustration, in “Education News on the Radio,” using the signal of Radio UEM FM, the project’s activities of target Paraná municipalities with a low human development index (HDI).
