PR No.97 Islamabad: March 10, 2017
The Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) through Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with an NGO for utilizing “Quaid Say Baatein” (QSB) animated video contents in the schools of Federal Directorate of Education, Islamabad.
QSB consists of 13 animated video episodes, each reinforcing positive civic and ethical values in the children which are communicated in a medium more palpable for the young children. These episodes are already aired on different T.V channels. At the initial stage, the NGO agrees to roll out QSB contents to only those schools/colleges of ICT which have existing multimedia capabilities and also expressed willingness to provide training (free of cost) to the selected teachers immediately after signing the MoU.
After concluding the initial roll-out phase, the two sides will explore enhancing the scope of MoU. This will allow both partners to expose students to QSB content in even those educational institutions of ICT which currently do not have multimedia capabilities. QSB program would be commenced in the selected schools of FDE, at the start of forthcoming academic session.
The implementation partner will share QSB lesson plans with the FDE and will deliver trainings, free of cost, to teachers from the selected schools of the ICT, under a cascaded training model, to train master trainers on how to best utilize the lesson plans.
Speaking at the occasion, the Minister of State for CADD, Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry said that instilling good social and moral values among children is one of the prime aims of education. This program will help to educate students about the sayings of Quaid and inculcate in them the cherished principles of a civilized citizen, he added.
