The One to Watch: Radio, New ICTs and Interactivity

The One to Watch: Radio, New ICTs and Interactivity

The cases presented in this book are among the first examples of the convergence of radio and new ICTs for development, and the book underscores the significant potential of the combination. This book is not concerned with how individuals or communities can interact with radio stations or the Internet via instant polling, phone in radio programmes or remote broadcasts from the town market. Instead it focuses on interactivity as a social communication process – on how radio, in combination with the Internet, can better inform people about themselves and the world, stimulating (interactive) communication within and between communities, and leading to a common understanding of problems and to common proposals for their resolution.
