How long have you been operating in Jordan? How different is the education market there compared to the UAE?
We have been proudly operating in Jordan since 2014.
Education all around the world is changing. The fast pace changing that we are facing in the 21st century is affecting teaching approaches, methods or techniques and the learning styles. Students understanding of things and perceiving of information has evolved and shifted. Whether in Jordan or in the UAE parents, students and schools are all looking for a common ground of life skills and an educational system, where each person's individual skills potential, abilities and skills are harnessed and developed further to be used as his or her tools for attaining bigger things in life in definite facets such as exploration, innovation, progress and many others.
What is your secret to staying innovative?
Innovation as a word itself sends a positive feeling for being creative and inspired. When we are dealing with technology we are always looking to satisfy the user and simplify the use of it. Seeing the continuous success on applied systems in different schools and educational institutes has always given us the inspiration and encouragement to provide the latest and most up to date ideas and technology solutions.
Do you also provide training to students and/or educators?
Yes. Training is the most critical part in the technology deployment process. Anytime we implement the solutions into a school, we always design a customized training program for the teachers, students and IT staff there and follow up closely to put our users in the best possible position to succeed. The goals here are not only for the teacher to know how to use the product effectively, but also for the students to enjoy learning in an interactive and productive environment.
How do you find the right solution for the school you are working with?
We have a lot of experience in helping schools take the next step to transform into a smart school. There are many factors that go into the evaluation process and essentially contribute to our recommendation to the school. One of the most important factors, for instance, has to do with the schools past e-learning projects: what are some of the technologies the school has adopted in the past, how much experience do the teachers have when it comes to using technology on a daily basis, how comfortable are they with technology…etc. Those questions mentioned are crucial in finding the right solution for any schools we get in contact with.
What are some of your key findings from being in the industry that you would like to highlight?
One of the most obvious changes we have observed is that the schools are shifting their focus from hardware upgrade to software and cloud integration. With almost all of the classrooms equipped with a computer and a projector, the task becomes finding the right interactive software that can take the classroom experience to the next level. The cloud learning management system also becomes a well sought-after commodity by the school with data collected in the classroom changes from paper-based to digital. By keeping keep track each individual student’s learning progress, the teacher will be able to easily identify his or her students’ strengths and weaknesses and provide the right assistance immediately.
