PEN partnered with Multinet (Pvt.) Ltd. to implement Project SABAQ – Digital Learning System in its adopted schools at Karachi and Lahore.
The SABAQ Digital Learning System improves learning outcomes for children out of school and in school in Pakistan by providing high quality, interactive content directly to children on tablets/hand-held devices.
SABAQ is a software designed for self-learning, geared towards children aged 4 to 10. Through video lessons, stories, tests and exercises, SABAQ aims to relay the entirety of Pakistan’s national curriculum to children in a way that is appealing and retentively engaging.
Its built-in tests and exercises ensure that children retain what they learn, and advance only when they have completed prerequisite levels, thus helping them learn at their individual pace.
During Phase I, PEN implemented SABAQ in 21 PEN-adopted schools in Lahore and 5 PEN-adopted public schools in Karachi.
- SABAQ aims to be a stand-alone product rather than an educational supplement. We propose to create academic content so comprehensive, that it can create literacy within children and educate them while minimizing the need for a teacher.
- Over the three years, 55,000 in-school children (ISC) (in KG to grade 5) will have improved learning outcomes in literacy, numeracy and science.
