SIVECO Romania is participating in the most prestigious educational exhibition in the Middle East

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

SIVECO Romania is participating as a partner of the Ministry of Education from the United Arab Emirates in the Gulf Education Supplies and Solutions (GESS), in the most important educational exhibition in the Middle East. The event is organized under the high patronage of his Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prim Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

The impressive budgets that countries from Middle East allocate for education (over 30 billion USD annually), transform the event in the meeting place of the most important educational solutions developers from all around the world and the beneficiaries of future major projects.

The Ministry of Education from UAE chose SIVECO Romania to implement in schools from the region, the educational interactive content AeL. The main objective of the project is to contribute to the development and modernization of the educational system in UAE and to encourage the use of IT&C resources for the teaching/learning process in the pre-universitary education.

The beneficiaries of this project are the students and teachers from the UAE that can access more than 3,000 learning objects in Arabic and English for biology, physics, chemistry, geography and mathematics. The educational content was translated and localized with the support of local teachers to fully comply with the official curricula and the Arab culture. Also, teachers will be trained to learn how to use IT&C resources, especially the interactive digital content, for increasing the interactivity during the class and assuring an optimum level of knowledge regarding the use of computers.

During GESS 2009, the representatives from SIVECO Romania present the eLearning solution implemented within the UAE project. The development of interactive lessons represents a continuation of the project that started with the creation of the first national educational portal from the UAE. Presently more than 30,000 pupils, students and teachers have access to the educational resources posted online. The significant results of this project determined the representatives from the Ministry of Education to further develop the collaboration with SIVECO Romania by adapting the AeL eLearning solution to the specific requirements of the educational system from UAE.

SIVECO Romania is also present in GESS 2009 alongside its partners Microsoft and SANAKO, to present their modern integrated educational solutions and the joint projects implemented in the region.
