Has enhanced learning for schools in UAE; to lead strong Accessibility Initiative for students with special needs in 2019

Dubai, UAE, April 20, 2019:   MDS Computers Technical Systems (MDS CTS), Apple Solution Expert (ASE) for Education in the UAE, has been the fulcrum of change in the UAE's education sector by successfully deploying Apple's products to transform teaching and learning. Currently, the company is working with over 100 educational institutes and training centres with five of these schools being recognised as Apple Distinguished Schools. MDS CTS has also been leading an Inclusive Learning Initiative, which aims to offer students with special needs the opportunity to become active independent learners by utilizing accessibility features embedded into Apple Devices.  

“MDS CTS has over 15 years of experience in delivering Apple solutions to schools in the UAE and we are proud of our contribution in transforming education in the region. As an Apple Solution Expert for Education, MDS CTS has been working closely with educational institutes to understand their unique challenges and provide customised solutions, ongoing support and various services to meet their requirements. From education strategic planning sessions to technical services and professional learning for teachers. We have  demonstrated that we have the experience, expertise and deep understanding of technology integration needs in the education sector,” said Roger Kakhia, EVP, MDS CTS.

“Our goal is to continue transforming technology integration in educational institutions. In 2019, we plan to raise awareness around the use of iPad and Apple pencil for art, sketching and graphics, and focus on robotic kits with swift playgrounds and Apple's Everyone Can Create curriculum. We also plan to reach out to students with special needs through our Inclusive Learning Initiative.” Mr. Kakhia added.

In addition to transforming the teaching and learning experiences in education, MDS CTS has also supported five UAE schools on their journey to achieve the ‘Apple Distinguished School' recognition. These  schools are centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.  

“MDS CTS has been our partner in our digital transformation journey, with their continued technical and professional learning services, we have transformed our learning environment and changed the way our students learn, and our teachers teach. Our school has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished school, where our staff and students demonstrate how best practices in learning and teaching are continuously innovating with Apple technology. Through a wide range of educational tools and programs, our students have personalized their learning experience, which has led to a marked improvement in performance and grades. The interactive nature of these digital tools has made learning immersive and fun, and has motivated and inspired our students to innovate and go beyond the scope of traditional learning,” said Emma Hannon, Director of Digital Learning and Innovation, Sheikh Zayed Private Academy of Boys.
