  • I don’t trust Google. Should have gone with Microsoft. Also MS portfolio is large spanning from windows to Xbox to MS 365 to MS Azure. Google is nothing but a monopoly.

  • I think this will benefit not only students and teachers but will enable students to make a greater contribution to their country’s development as they should be starting their working lives with competence in the use of digital technology tools.

  • It is just a policy it can not be implemented. We have shortage of teachers and computer lab in all over khyber pakhtunkhwa.

  • GSuite for Education is the right direction to take. Its cost free for Non Profit organizations and if its a government initiative it will be promoted and perhaps subsidized for under privileged schools.

    Also bear in mind that it can be supported by most android cell phones, hence negating the need to buy costly ICT equipment.
