Based in the United Arab Emirates, Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) is working to provide distinctive secondary school programs that integrate career and technical education with a rigorous academic core. It engaged with the Intel World Ahead Program, a global initiative designed to bring the benefits of the digital world to the next generation. Nearly 6,000 Apple MacBook Pro* computers with Intel® Core™ i5 processors were deployed across five campuses, to 400 teachers and over 5,000 students. Other 1:1 eLearning elements included rich-media local content, new teaching methods and a professional development curriculum—all designed to drive technology-based collaborative learning.
“Technology is now supporting the teacher-student relationships,” explained Shadi O. Ayoub, curriculum developer for ICT, “enabling a collaborative approach to study.”
