EducationUSAID distributes 23,800 computer tablets for teachers in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The United States Agency for International Development was distributing 23,800 computer tablets through its Pakistan Reading Project to public school teachers of grades 1 and 2. 

These tablets were being distributed to support teacher training and improved reading instruction in classrooms across Pakistan, said a news release on Tuesday.

“Distribution of computer tablets is an investment in an appreciation of the teaching force that prepares the future of Pakistan,” USAID Mission Director John Groarke said in a Tablet distribution ceremony held here at Islamabad Model College for Girls Chak Shahzad.

“We see information and communications technology as a vital resource in the effort to extend educational access and improve the quality of instruction across economic, cultural, geographic, and other barriers” John added.

Each computer tablet is configured with applications and tools such as teacher training modules, daily lesson plans, virtual mentoring videos, and audio lessons to help teachers improve their instruction and the literacy levels of children in their classrooms.

The USAID-funded Pakistan Reading Project is a $165 million project designed to support provincial and regional departments of education to improve the reading skills of primary school children across the country.

The program is designed to utilize three inter-related components to affect the quality of education in early primary grades: an improved classroom learning environment for reading, improved policies and systems for reading, and community-based support for reading in Pakistan.
