Learn While You Teach

The pilot tested the use of videos and tablets, as well as innovative teaching techniques, by District Teacher Educators (DTEs) for training primary school teachers (PSTs) in Sahiwal, Bahawalnagar and Hafizabad. It is expected to improve the teachers’ subject knowledge, as well as teaching techniques.

Project Features

  • Use of technology to build on existing professional development models for primary school teachers (PSTs)
  • Training district teacher educators (DTEs) responsible for capacity development of PSTs
  • Development of high-quality courseware (20 videos and related booklets) for selected topics within the Grade 5 math and science syllabi

17,715 individuals benefited from the project including:
