Studying nowadays relies on modular lessons or online classes. Inorder to continue this stepping stone for students, the parents and their parents or guardians need to sacrifice.

Teachers have tried various strategies to give attention to students that have been struggling through their studies. As the internet connection isn't available in mountain sides, other teachers have to walk miles to kilometers, cross rivers to make sure that the children continue to study and understand the importance of education. This was a hard job for teachers and there’s no guarantee that every child can get this service from their teacher because some of the houses are just too far a way to walk through, and the others doesn't share the specific address to teachers.

As internet connections are too hard in mountain barangays due to signal problems, a mini radio is a way to help both teachers and students.

In the Municipality of Palawan there is a program named "Tulong sa Bagong Normal: Tulong Para sa Bayani” led by the Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. (PSFI) as they aim to help the teachers for the new normal and to implement a distance learning for education.

On Thursday January 28, the PSFI turned over a mini FM station for Abongan Elementary School in Taytay, Palawan as a support for the Department of Education’s Modular Distance Learning. This Radio-based Instruction will help the teachers to get in touch with students and explain lessons. It is also cost-efficient and ensures the safety of everyone.

Around Palawan, there will be 10 radio stations to be put in municipalities that are geographically-isolated disadvantageous like Narra, El Nido, Roxas, Bataraza and other five (which is not named yet). They announced that they are hoping that other local organizations and foundations can help them raise funds to give more equipment in other areas.

In an interview, the PSFI Manager Marvin Trudeau said that every radio station cost between P35,000 t0 P40,000. The Palawan Tourism Council added funds for logistics and mobilization, the Palawan Chamber of Commerce, Inc for radio stations and JCI Kiao was incharge for the strict monitoring. The PSFI was thankful for the organizations that have given support to the foundation to make this program possible.

The radio station can cover up to 3 kilometers radius from the school. It operates with 15 watts of power and will air on 106.7 Radio Eskwela. The Radio-based Instructions includes the 150 units of winding radio that will be given for students to use.

Ynna Lauron-Doblado, PSFI program manager in Palawan said that “With radio-based instruction, teachers will serve as radio announcers and will deliver lectures via the mini FM station. The students will have to look for the Radio Eskwela frequency so they can listen to the lecture for their subject. We complement the mini FM station with a rechargeable radio so we ensure that lectures are heard by the students.”

Through this, delivering quality and understandable explanations for students are handful. This will also be a good assistance for the teachers.
