New educational technology offers smart and interactive classrooms for an enhanced learning experience
Riyadh – Saudi Arabia, 18 February 2013: FVC, one of the leading Value Added Distributors in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, has launched its SILEX (Smart Interactive Live Experience) Educational solutions at the IEFE 2013 conference in Riyadh, held from the 18-22 February. With Saudi Arabia as one of the fastest growing education market in the region, the new technology represents a significant advancement in the way students learn and interact with teachers in the classroom.
SILEX educational solutions represents the next generation of classrooms that are built around interactivity for better productivity, taking students and teachers beyond traditional teaching and learning. The interactive classroom allows students and teachers to transfer, present and upload information seamlessly, and provides educational facilities with unlimited opportunities for video conferencing and distance learning. SILEX enables an entire classroom to be controlled with an iPad through the SILEX control application, and, along with a main display screen and an interactive whiteboard, students benefit from individual retractable screens or multi-touch tablets at each of their desks.
With Saudi Arabia planning to invest over $21 billioninto the educational sector in the next few years, it represents a serious intent to improve educational access for its citizens, something that FVC is keen to be a part of. Commenting on the launch of SILEX, Yakob Kaffina, FVC’s General Manager for Saudi Arabia said, “With SILEX, FVC has created the ultimate virtual classroom that allows students and teachers to present and share information and lessons at the touch of a button. SILEX also offers state- of-the-art functions for distance learning, which is vital for the growth of the educational sector in the Kingdom. We truly believe that this can transform the way Saudi students learn and give them an advantage over not only students in the region, but the rest of the world.”
