The Educators, a network of pre-schools, primary and secondary schools across Pakistan, and a project of Beaconhouse Group, has joined hands with Google for Education’s partner in Pakistan, Tech Valley, to digitise their teaching and learning practices using Google for Education tools. A MoU signing was held in the presence of the global Google for Education team, including the Director of JAPAC, Google for Education.
At the event, Colin Marson, Director of Google for Education, JAPAC mentioned, “We have great partners worldwide that are working to enhance the global education system with the help of technology and standardising the curriculum.”
Established in 2002, The Educators now has 900+ campuses & is the market leader in Pakistan’s educational landscape, with a presence in over 225+ cities and a student strength exceeding 200,000+. The Educators’ outreach is the largest compared to any other private school worldwide.
Tech Valley is a strong advocate of leveraging technology in the education sector of Pakistan. It will help The Educators adopt different tools like Google Classroom, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, etc., in their classrooms so teachers and students can utilise them for practical learning experiences.
At the ceremony, Ali Raza, Group Director of Beaconhouse Group, said, “After COVID-19, we realised how important it is to implement technology in our curriculum. We are revolutionising our schools with Google for Education tools and technologies.”
Under this digitisation project, teachers and IT staff will also be trained on the Google for Education tools to leverage the technology to improve the teaching and learning process of the schools. The selected schools’ infrastructure will also be modernised and enhanced with Chrome OS Flex, a cloud-first, fast, easy-to-manage, and secure operating system.
CEO Tech Valley Umar Farooq mentioned, “We have started this pilot program with The Educators from Islamabad and Rawalpindi and plan on deploying Google for Education tools in more cities. We will also be focusing on Google for Education programs like CS First and Be Internet Awesome to prepare our kids for the digital world.”
