Pupils learn Arabic through technology
Primary school teachers in Sharjah are being equipped with the latest smart tools to train their young pupils.
A series of workshops run by Lughati, the Arabic learning initiative, aims to support the studying of Arabic in Sharjah schools using modern technology.
The initiative introduced training sessions for Grade 1 and 2 teachers from 49 public schools across the emirate.
Launched in January last year, Lughati’s objective is to provide 25,000 students and 1,000 teachers of all grades in these schools with smart tablets.
Pre-loaded onto the tablets is the ‘Horouf’ learning application, developed by Horouf Educational Publishing, a subsidiary of Kalimat Publishing Group.
"We are delighted to once again host workshops that show teachers how they can maximise their teaching capacity through the Lughati smart tablets,” said Badria Al Ali, manager of the initiative. “This year, we have expanded our target by enabling Grade 2 teachers to benefit from our extensive training programme. We are also revisiting some of the essential points with Grade 1 teachers who now have a great deal of experience working with the smart tablets and whose classroom experience in applying smart learning will be essential to the growth and development of the initiative year-on-year."
