Numerous educational institutions around the world are closed due to the new Novel Coronavirus disease COVID 19 and it is not yet known when they will be able to reopen.
As a result, a large number of students from all over the world cannot go to educational institutions. The situation is similar in Pakistan and most of the institutions have faced such situations for the first time.
To this end, Google has developed a teaching tool for Pakistan called Teach from Home, which contains information, advice, training, and tools available on Google for Education to help teachers engage in their educational activities. Online help can be provided.
Training materials on how to get started.
Best practices for teaching lessons with or without the convenience of video calls.
Tips on creating and engaging a community and a step-by-step teach from the home toolkit that can also be downloaded.
In addition, schools and other educational institutions can use the Google Meet Video Conference's premium features for free by September 30, 2020. These features have the capability that 250 people can be contacted in one call, lessons can be recorded and live-streamed.
Google's G Suite for Education is also free for qualified educational institutions. For those who have not yet signed up, they can sign up by visiting this link where there is also a guide for creating an educational account and domain.
Google has developed the Teach from Home Hub in collaboration with the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education, which is also working with other educational partners in this epidemic situation.
Currently, Teach From Home is available in English, while toolkits are available in 18 languages, and these toolkits can be downloaded. More languages will be added soon.
