Guided by the Apple Distinguished Educators and Apple Professional Learning Specialists, participants will be using iPads throughout their learning journey at Etisalat’s stand during GITEX Technology Week 2018. Different educational levels – primary, secondary, and tertiary – will be accommodated throughout the day. 

The primary level’s theme is ‘The Human Body’, while it would be ‘Space and Mission to Mars’ and ‘Biomimicry – Learning from Nature’ for the secondary and tertiary levels, respectively.
