The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is distributing electronic tablets to more than 1,600 schools and district education departments across the country. These tablets will provide teachers at each school participating in USAID’s Okuu Keremet! Project with useful resources and applications to help  them improve the quality of their lessons and testing methodology in the subjects of reading and math.
  
As USAID/Kyrgyz Republic Acting Mission Director Keith Simmons welcomed the delivery of the tablets emphasizing, “Reading and math are the building blocks for lifelong learning and for success in a 21st century economy. That is why we are working with tens of thousands of school teachers at over 1,600 public schools across Kyrgyzstan to help them teach these two subjects more effectively.” 
 
With these tablets teachers can access numerous training materials for their professional development. Okuu Keremet! developed special modules on teaching reading and math which feature short videos of teaching advice and strategies developed by Kyrgyz teachers colleagues throughout the country.
