In 2015, an initiative began to provide children with Android tablets in rural Sindh Pakistan for schools to integrate E-learning as part of the school curriculum as they are remote and vulnerable areas. Furthermore, 46 PEP schools are using android tablets as part of their curriculum. But due to the shortage of Tablets, many children can't have e-learning. Currently, 100 tablet devices are needed to sustain digital learning in 46 primary schools.
Through integrating E-learning into the school curriculum students enrollment has increased significantly. But due to the device's low life span, Older devices are having software and hardware issues that need to be repaired or replaced. Furthermore, the major focus is to provide new devices cause the strength of children is increasing with their interest in digital learning but the shortage of devices is stoping their access to complete stable Digital E-learning.
During the pilot phase, the android tablets were used to familiarize students with android devices, teach them to access web content through an android device, and improve literacy skills through reading and listening, especially in Sindhi, English, and Math. The 1st assessment test i.e ASER test was conducted in the intervention and non-intervention schools. The results were remarkable and students were seen to have been making great progress.
By the survey, we have seen that E-learning is improving curriculum learning growth in all forms. In rural Sindh, women are mostly considered as the weaker gender and having less to no rights which is why women are deprived of their freedom. The purpose of providing such opportunities to rural women in Sindh is to empower them and making them believe that they too have a significant purpose in the growth of their society and that they can use their abilities to bring change.
