KPK becomes the first province to integrate Google for Education into its educational institutes. This marks a welcoming development in the education sector in Pakistan. KPK has taken multiple initiatives in the past 7 to 8 years since PTI has been elected.
This will redefine the current education system on modern lines.
What is Google for Education?
Google for Education is a service provided by Google, as the name suggests. It offers free and secure education tools to transform how students work, learn, and innovate together.
A meeting between the provincial government and a team from Google was also carried out to decide the modalities for deploying the modern education system in the KPK.
“My department has decided to integrate the modern education system ‘Google for Education’ in the province”, said the Provincial Minister for Elementary and Secondary Education Shahram Khan Tarakai in a tweet.
