  • Mobile app developed and synced with Biometrics device
  • Monitors teacher’s attendance across Sindh-Live

Sindh Senior Minister for Education & Literacy Pir Mazharul Haq has previously announced this plan and said that biometric System/ GPRS methods would be introduced in Sindh schools to check the drop out of students and absence of teachers very soon.

Technology has been making inroads into education for decades. But the mobile revolution is changing education in more fundamental ways than just providing a new gadget that delivers information. Mobile devices with appropriate content and learning tools, particularly tablets, are changing the way we learn and think about learning. Such initiatives will no doubt make Pakistan a success story in the region.
