The new technology in the classroom, Samsung says, is set to change dramatically how students learn and teachers pass on instructions. To lead this education revolution, Samsung has launched ‘Classroom digitization’ at Redeemer’s University, in collaboration with one of its key partner, Beecit Solutions, who also worked to deliver advanced solutions for the digital classroom.
Already, the widespread adoption of tablets, mobile applications, social networks and digital content is having a profound effect on students around the world, including Nigeria.
