    New iPad program brings tablets to students in Dubai universities


    The iPad has already become notorious for establishing itself as a worthy tool in the field of education. Surveys have been made to prove its effectiveness and schools have rushed to acquire as many as they could. Now the educational tablet goes international.
    His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai kick-starterd last week the Mohammad Bin Rashid Initiative for Smart Learning for higher education in the country at the Abu Dhabi Men’s Collage.

    The tablets are destined to 13,000 students in their first years of university education of Zayed University, the Emirates University and the Higher Colleges of Technology. The event was graced by the presence of some of the most illustrious personalities in the country like ministers and deans of colleges. Sheikh Mohammad visited the iPad training classes and observed students engaged in iPad related activities.

    “It took eight months of planning and a very careful assessment of our campus’ ability to handle these intriguing devices,” explained Thomas Cochran, Associate Provost and Campus Director of Zayed University.

    Second year IT student and IT project coordinator at HCT Mohammad Khaled Salmen explained to reporters present at the event that the initiative aims to break student’s reliance on paper-based knowledge, highlighting the eco-friendly side of this project. In that sense, the IT department has prohibited students from printing any of their materials thus ensuring the act of studying and learning remains only tablet based.

    The program has already started and in the first week, in order to familiarize themselves with the devices, students were asked by educators to take pictures with their iPads of the campus grounds.

    “This was the first step taken in engaging the students, “explained Mohammad Khaled Salmen

    Future products will function similiar to the ipad (slider, touchscreen, ect). It's good to get people into those if they have never experienced them.

    As far as education, iPad has many great uses- from medical students (touchscreen otopsy anyone?),for architecture students, engineers as well as many others. Glad to see more schools implementing.
