Information technology giant Google planned to establish 50 smart schools in Islamabad, equipped with 30,000 Google for Education IDs, including features such as artificial intelligence (AI) and digital tools for enhanced collaboration and productivity.

A ‘Google for Education’ team, alongside its local partner Tech Valley, met with the education secretary and presented forthcoming plans for Pakistan’s education sector to the government. During the meeting, several upcoming initiatives were also discussed.

The discussions extended to teacher workshops on Google for Education tools, establishment of a public Google Reference School, training of 2,000 youths in job-ready skills through Google career certificates, and the potential collaboration on hosting an Edutech event with the education ministry in Pakistan.
