Jazz, Pakistan’s number one 4G operator and largest internet and broadband service provider has partnered with The Citizens Foundation (TCF) to digitally transform 1,652 TCF schools, positively impacting more than 266,000 students in Pakistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. Jazz will also help replace obsolete tablets and mobile phones running TCF’s existing School Management App, allowing principals to collect data more efficiently.
This three-year collaboration will introduce a blended learning curriculum, renovation of computer labs and a digital school management system. TCF will deliver a new, cutting-edge digital literacy curriculum designed for blended learning, by renovating existing computer labs and installing a 500 battery-powered audio-visual room. Teachers will combine online educational materials with traditional ground-based classroom methods to illustrate the concepts described in textbooks. 3,584 TCF teachers will also be trained to use this state-of-the-art technology.
Talking about this development, TCF President and CEO Syed Asaad Ayub Ahmad said, “Every child deserves and can receive 21st century education. We’ve been trying ways to use technology to support learning for years. Jazz’s support comes at the right time so that we can offer new solutions that exemplify what is possible in Pakistan. “
“Our support to TCF over the years is based on a mutually inclusive goal of empowering young people with a quality education and skill set that complements this digital age. We’re making TCF complete its digital transformation to provide a robust learning experience that builds relevant, valuable and digital age skills, ”said Syed Fakhar Ahmed, Corporate and Legal Affairs Director of Jazz.
Driven by the drive to empower young people digitally and help the Government of Pakistan realize its vision of Digital Pakistan, Jazz continues to build long-term, sustainable solutions and partnerships that enliven its resources and expertise, individuals and the wider community.
