BRAC signed a MoU with the ICT division of Ministry of Posts, Telecommunication and IT on 28 April 2014. The purpose of this partnership is to develop interactive multimedia contents for primary education on mathematics, science and social science. The content is based on NCTB primary (class 1-5) curriculum.
This will ensure conceptual clarity and better application of lessons for both students and teachers; improve the quality of education by shifting the style from teacher-centred to an interactive and engaging learner-centred. Teachers can use technology as an effective tool to deliver lessons in the classroom. The material will be developed involving relevant stakeholders and experts.
