  10. 10. The Transition Education has become mobile, engaging and entertaining. Mobile learning now compliments classroom education and supplements school syllabi. An app can equal several months of classroom curriculums. EduApps are collaborative products, making content easier for children to grasp and for parents to teach. They are constantly upgraded and enhanced with expectations getting higher everyday. Unlike the classroom, there is no age restriction. The audience grows depending on popularity.© 2012 | Jimmy Ghazal
  11. 11. Technical Issues Technology is still costly and not standardized in one universal format. Broadband speed directly affect the quality, size and content of e-products. Many governments do not have the infrastructure, initiative or funding to promote e-learning methods.© 2012 | Jimmy Ghazal
  12. 12. The Challenges More than 300 million people in the Arab world want to learn, access content and share their knowledge, but are mostly conservative. Many educational programs have remained unchanged for the last decades. Many parents and teachers are not yet up to speed with the changing face of technology. The Arab region shares one written language but multiple cultures, dialects and identities. Social, religious and political limitations, as well as local considerations. We often fall into the mistake of implementing 1 dialect for all Arabic speaking audiences. The Need to keep up with Western and international standards, while maintaining local relevance. Credibility and certification. Who sets the standards?© 2012 | Jimmy Ghazal
