Education is essential, and there are no doubts behind this fact. Pakistan is changing the game of education within the country by going digital with ‘Google for Education.’
Khyber Pakthunkhwa (KP) will be Pakistan’s first province to upgrade the existing education system with the help of Google.
The government and the tech titan will join hands to replace the old educational system with advanced technology, introducing digital education to classrooms.
Teachers will also be given proper training on how to use the tech. They will also be trained on how to share experiences that go beyond the classroom with their students.
This mind-blowing news was shared by Shahram Khan Tarakal, the Minister of Education, KP, on his official Twitter account.
With the help of @GoogleforEdu, we are going to digitally enable the #educational #institutions all over #KP and will ensure that #teachers are technologically #trained and later on this digital literacy will be passed on to the students as well. (2/2)@TechValleyPak @Google

Education and development go hand in hand. Even though countries like Pakistan have come a long way in the past decade, we can’t deny that there are still countless who are deprived of education.
Here are some of the many advantages of education:
- boosts economic growth
- increases the GDP of a country
- reduces the infant mortality rate
- increases human life expectancy
- opens investment opportunities in a country
- guarantees lifetime income
- promotes peace
- reduces drop-out rates from schools and colleges
- encourages healthy competition
- helps in making the right decisions at the time of conflicts

Google For Education
Google for Education gives teachers the freedom to spend more time personalizing the learning experience and less time managing it. Students can learn 21st-century problem-solving and the skills they’ll use in their future careers, with accessibility features that help every student do their best work.
Moreover, this technology is not just limited to students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. It is also widely adopted for higher educational purposes by colleges and university campuses as well.
Technology alone will not improve education, but it can be a powerful part of the solution. -Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google
Google solutions create a robust computing infrastructure that keeps today’s higher ed communities humming. Researchers can speed up analysis from days to minutes, working seamlessly across departments and data sets. Students and faculty can collaborate quickly and securely across disciplines and campuses. And campus staff can work more efficiently and effectively.
