Epson has announced that it will unveil select products that have the potential to boost classroom technology to enhance the learning experience at Kuwait EDUTECH 2013, the latest edition of the biggest educational event dedicated to the development of Kuwait’s education sector. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Epson is joining the show, which will place on October 29 and 30 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Kuwait.
Epson has hand-picked the EB-485Wi Interactive Projectors, Ink Tank System (ITS) Printers and the GT-1500 Scanner to be showcased at the event. EB-485Wi Interactive Projectors, the world's shortest throw, fully-integrated interactive projector, is expected to be the biggest draw due to its suitability to classroom environments. With easy-to-use interactive and multiple projection modes, it can help educators make engaging presentations in a seamless manner to liven up classes and encourage discussions.
Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said: “EDUTECH is a forum that seeks to transform the physical and virtual learning environments in keeping with modern times. It believes in the power of technology to revolutionize the overall educational experience in the region. It’s this shared interest that has led us to associate with this forum since its inception.”
“As the Middle East market continues to revive, especially with GCC nations on the cusp of peaking in terms of size and strong market performance, we are committed to bolstering our marketing initiatives to capitalize on this opportunity. Strategic platforms such as Kuwait EDUTECH will help us make inroads into the region’s growing education sector, while also serving our mutual interest of building a more interactive and technologically advanced educational environment,” added El-Dalu.
The upcoming edition of Kuwait EDUTECH 2013 will feature conference sessions on ‘Rethinking Physical-Learning-Virtual Spaces,’ ‘Leadership, Technology and Education,’ ‘Beyond Classroom Walls: Cloud Computing for Education,’ and ‘Kuwait MoE Vision vis-a-vis Planned Educational Projects.’ It is being held under the patronage of H.E.
