Community schools in poor and marginalized areas in Pakistan find it difficult to find quality teachers. Also, the teachers who teach at such schools need frequent practical advice and demonstrations to help them improve their teaching – often in multi-grade classrooms, while monitoring and evaluation of teaching practices is also lacking. This level of support can be difficult and expensive to provide via traditional programmes.
To improve learning outcomes of children at the primary level, TeleTaleem will connect teachers and children in community schools with remotely located specialist teachers. A remote online teacher will deliver classes for English, mathematics and science on a daily basis at the community school. By observing this innovative teaching approach, local school teachers will acquire knowledge and new skills for teaching, and children’s learning is expected to improve.
The same ‘remote’ approach will be used to provide regular training and support for teachers at community schools (and for teachers in nearby schools if they wish to attend).
ILM IDEAS 2’ INVESTMENT
With Ilm Ideas 2’s investment of approximately £750,000, TeleTaleem will roll out these services in 150 schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to reach at least 15,000 children.
WHY ILM 2 INVESTED
- TeleTaleem is working with the Elementary Education Foundation and, if the approach is successful, they are interested in scaling it up in all of the community schools they have established
- Good alignment with Ilm 2’s intended results
- A strong team with experience and learning from other education solutions delivered using technology
