In all of our deployments, our partners select their content so that it will fit into their programs. Most partners incorporate a combination of two models: use of the tablets in the classroom as part of a blended learning model, as well as its use in a library or independent study context. Most deployments incorporate content that can be used in both circumstances.
In Syria, tablets are being incorporated into classroom instruction and also used to provide autonomous learning opportunities. Teachers are incorporating content, like animated videos and educational pictures, into their lessons to provide other resources to get a lesson across and to get children excited about learning. Tablets are also being used independently by students outside of class time (the school teaches groups in shifts to accommodate all students), which the school reported to be a way to “teach Syrian children to be responsible for their education and proactive agents in their studies.” This also means that the tablets make it possible for the school to reach more children - it gives more children an opportunity to study without requiring the school to increase its capacity or spending.
