school of the air
A system of schooling for children in rural and remote areas, developed to supplement correspondence education. It was pioneered in Australia in 1951. Teachers use high-frequency, two-way radio to broadcast lessons and communicate with students. It remains the most important means of education for children who have no access to school. Today email, the Internet, video and fax are also used.
