According to the article The Lebanese school curriculum adapted on digital media, from Orient Le Jour, Lebanese school materials usually come from imported books, not always adapted to the culture of the country. To remedy this, the entire educational and academic aspect of the digital program has been developed within the Eduvation network, which brings together these three schools in Beirut.

"The result of three years of work involving developers, illustrators, teachers and parents of students, this program covers all subjects of the Lebanese curriculum," says the article. It is intended for students of levels equivalent to 1er primary cycle. Life doesn't just happen on a tablet, but the main teaching content is there.

The purchase of the devices was financed by the families, who often already owned them. At the start of the year, students receive training on how to properly use and care for the device. In addition, they are only allowed to install approved apps.

Thanks to this project, there could soon be several other schools in the country that follow suit and take advantage of digital technology to benefit from a school curriculum adapted to their reality.
