Student project helping teach children in Pakistan

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Teachers in Pakistan have an extensive online resource to draw on during the coronavirus pandemic thanks to hundreds of graduate students at Waterloo Engineering.

The students have spent more than three years building an online library of over 15,000 videos, assignments and exercises that follow the national curriculum by grade and subject.

With children forced to stay home because of the COVID-19 crisis, teachers are now using the library to prepare lessons they can send to their students by email.

“Technology allows us, even being here in Canada, to help the disadvantaged and improve the world more than ever,” says Peter Carr, a management sciences lecturer who supervises the library project.

“We’re using that technology to create a motivating, rewarding learning experience for our students, while at the same time doing some real good in another part of the world.”
