TEAL's Impact and Future

DIL's latest innovation, Technology Enabled Academic Learning (TEAL), represents the acme of all our successes in EdTech interventions over the past 20 years, using video to strengthen core subject instruction in the classroom. Currently, these subjects include math, science, English, and Urdu.

The main purpose of TEAL is to enable students to construct their own understanding of a concept through a combination of video, student-centered learning activities, and assessments. It has recast the way teachers teach and students learn by shifting (a) the teacher's function from direct instruction to guiding students' acquisition of knowledge, and (b) the students from passive to active learners. As newly learned concepts constellate in students' minds, teachers use scripted, activity-based lesson plans to support students in creatively applying those concepts.


TEAL's Uniqueness
Like other similar programs in Pakistan's education system, TEAL complies with national curricular standards (Standard Learning Objectives or SLOs) for each of the 4 subjects. What makes TEAL unique, though, is threefold:

(a) Shortage of electricity in rural areas makes internet access difficult. Once downloaded from the web, TEAL video lessons become accessible even without internet.

(b) DIL develops its own digital content, and enhances it by regularly soliciting feedback from both students and teachers. This continuous feedback improves the quality of instruction, allowing DIL to make adjustments that help students gain better
command of the material.

(c) TEAL standardizes the quality of instruction across schools.

TEAL's Impact
Although DIL has only fully implemented TEAL in Grade 6, it has delivered results. The graph above illustrates the cumulative progress of 407 Grade 6 students between 2018 and 2019 in the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) as well as ICT (Islamabad Central Territory) Region. Each student completed 105 pre- and post-assessment tests in the 4 subjects.

In May 2020, Pakistan's Federal Directorate of Education chose TEAL videos for its new PTV Tele School initiative, a statetelevised program which aims to bring quality education to children while schools remain closed because of the coronavirus epidemic.

TEAL's Future
In addition to expanding TEAL beyond Grade 6, DIL is adapting the technology to replace tablets with an economical, scalable LCD (liquid crystal display) that employs a clicker response system. The principles of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking will continue to shape new TEAL content and platform updates. The program shows great promise in improving the academic growth of children throughout Pakistan.
