Reach Out to Asia (Rota) has partnered with Commonwealth of Learning (COL) to launch mobile learning services in Pakistan following a training course held at Qatar Foundation’s (QF) Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Doha.
The mobile learning project, which Rota and COL have begun implementing in Pakistan’s Swat region, will provide students and teachers of schools in remote locations with access to electronic learning materials on a local server without the need for grid electricity or the Internet, through the use of the Aptus system designed by COL.
While Rota is a member of QF, Canada-headquartered COL is an intergovernmental organisation solely concerned with the promotion and development of distance education and open learning.
Following Rota’s four-day training for six teachers and project staff members from Pakistan, educators will now be able to integrate mobile learning in their curricula to provide students with independent learning opportunities and improve access to learning material and enhance the quality of teaching and learning in three selected classrooms in the rural areas of the country.
Essa al-Mannai, Rota’s executive director, said: “This is a new milestone for Rota in supporting quality education for the marginalised children of Pakistan. Rota is honoured to partner with an esteemed organisation like Commonwealth of Learning and invite such wonderful trainers for that purpose.”
