Google Teams Up with Pakistan to Revolutionize Education

News Desk2 weeks ago

Google will collaborate with the Pakistani government via Tech Valley, a country partner for Google for Education:

Organize a local assembly of more than 500,000 Chromebooks by 2026. Give teachers and students access to digital tools and resources. Teach educators how to use technology in the classroom. Create and execute cutting-edge technology-based learning initiatives.

The partnership’s main goal will be to support Pakistani youngsters who are not in school. Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, issued a proclamation last month regarding a “education emergency” in response to the problem of more than 26 million children not attending school. He promised to be in charge of a nationwide initiative to get these kids back into schools and said he hoped the provincial governments would help him do this.

As part of the partnership, Google Chromebook producer Allied from Australia will set up an assembly line in Pakistan to construct the devices locally, bringing down their cost for educational use. The intention is to guarantee that all students in the nation have access to state-of-the-art technology in the classroom, which will improve their educational experience.

The ultimate goal of Google and the Ministry of Federal Education’s partnership is to propel Pakistan’s educational system through a significant digital transformation by establishing smart classrooms and a thriving learning environment. Together, the two partners will empower teachers and students by concentrating on training, upskilling, and creating adaptable, smart classrooms.

Pakistan’s prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, underlined the necessity of such programs and stated, “We are here to support Google’s efforts in Pakistan and the highly commendable work it has been doing in the education sector.” In addition, he conveyed his strong desire to see Google and the Pakistani government work together more closely to find areas of mutual benefit and asked the Ministry of Federal Education & Professional and the Ministry of IT & Telecom to collaborate closely on this.

Additionally, setting up a local assembly line for more than 500,000 Chromebooks will boost the country’s manufacturing sector and draw in additional technology investment.
