"The focus of the partnership will be on successfully implementing a personalised math learning programme for 1,00,000 learners in Punjab. SBI Foundation and SBI Funds Management Pvt. Ltd. is providing funding support for math content localisation in Punjabi and teacher training programmes for over 5,000 teachers across 3,000 schools in Punjab," according to a statement. "With SBI Foundation's support, Khan Academy and the Punjab government will create new math lessons consisting of videos, articles and practise exercises in Punjabi aiming at all learners in Punjab's public schools," it said. This content will also be available on Khan Academy's platform for free for all students. This will help students from Classes 6-12 build a solid foundational understanding in math and learn at their own pace while enabling teachers to identify learning gaps and address them individually, it said.
