The Federal Directorate of Education has signed an MoU with Tech Valley which is a Google for Education Partner, to Digitize all schools and colleges in Islamabad. The initiative was initially discussed by Nawaz Sharif, known as “Digital Pakistan”.
This is in continuation of the spirit of Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan to make the country truly “Digital Pakistan” and bring digital transformation in all aspects.
At the beginning of the project, Tech Valley will install Google Workspace using cloud infrastructure in about 150 – 200 schools (for both males and females) in Islamabad.

Students in these 200 schools will initially get Chromebooks along with other necessary learning tools including the installation of Google Work Space.
Teachers will get training on these technological changes such as Google-based tools and they will be given a complete virtual orientation to carry out the tasks of teaching effectively through technologically aided tools in schools and colleges of the Islamabad Territory.
“The project will improve the teachers’ and students’ skills in using these technologies that will help them meet the modern-day demands. The project after being successful in Islamabad will be expanded to other parts of the country and will create a solid base for Digital Pakistan” said Education Secretary Farah Hamid.
