Reading Programs



TeleTaleem is a holistic just-in-time approach with a tight feedback loop that addresses children, parents, and the community simultaneously. In this intervention a satellite-enabled traveling van visits a cluster of schools once every two weeks. During this visit, teachers in cluster schools are provided numeracy training through remote tutoring. In addition, each teacher is provided with an Android tablet containing content and assessments for children. During the two weeks, the teacher collects assessment data from the children using the Android tablet. In addition, Stalling’s videos of teacher’s classroom behavior are recorded and analyzed by master trainers on a monthly basis. Teachers and school committees are kept informed about their children’s progress via SMS messages. The intervention targeted 24 schools in four clusters for one academic year in Pakistan. EGMA type tests were used to establish baseline and endline results for Grade 2 students. The results are that medium learning effects were achieved.
