DUBAI: The three-day Gulf Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS) 2014 exhibition concluded on Thursday. It was a huge opportunity for the academic professionals and the students who experienced a wide range of traditional and digital learning equipment showcased by renowned firms around the world.
The exhibition was held at the Dubai World Trade Centre and attended by a large number of students, teachers as well as other academic professionals. Over 300 local and international companies showcased the very latest educational products and solutions that can improve the quality of teaching and learning experience in classrooms throughout the Gulf region.
Besides exhibiting their latest products, many had the opportunity to introduce their newest designs. Lego Education announced the launch of the much awaited Arabic software for the Mindstorms EV3, which is recognised by all the Lego Mindstorms users in the Arab world.
This will empower the natives of the Middle East in taking the robotics platform to a much higher level.
Steen Skriver Kloster, marketing manager at Lego Education, while talking to The Gulf Today said that the response from the local community in the three-day event was overwhelming as more and more people were approaching and showing keen interest in the products displayed at the exhibition.
ATLAB, a technology based hands-on learning solutions company and the official partner of Lego education, is now offering Lego Education products, including its trademark programmable Mindstorms robotics kits, online through its all-new web store.
Using a browser, anyone can order online educational kits from the multi-awarded Lego Education Group. This includes the revolutionary Lego Education Mindstorms EV3 Robotics Platform with a programmable “brain”.
The new Arabic software for Mindstorms EV3 is also available online on Atlab’s Lego Education web store.
Senthil Kugan, Atlab general manager, said that “we are glad to offer an added support to students, teachers and parents by making the Lego Education Products available online. We are assured that this added convenience will encourage parents and school administrators to provide the best tools for learning for students,” he added.
BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations and global DLP projector leader, had showcased its Classroom IQ with a wide array of connectivity options and solutions. The BenQ Classroom IQ that includes Interactive Flat Panels, a complete classroom interactive projector solution, and cloud monitors will be highlighted at the event.
Manish Bakshi, Managing Director, BenQ Middle East and Africa told The Gulf Today “the education sector in the Middle East is pioneering new ways to integrate technology in classroom activities that aims to provide better interactivity between teachers and students.”
He further said the BenQ’s latest range of education solutions combines the power of optical touch technology and multimedia connectivity to keep students actively engaged in class and maximise the learning experience with fun and enjoyment. Governments in the Middle East, particularly the UAE, continue to invest in technology solutions to enhance the quality of education by ensuring that only the best products are used for teaching and learning.
