Nour Project مشروع نور - Mobile Learning for Arab Child
" Noor Project " a new opportunity for the Arab Child to make them use the smartest means of communication and lead them to access the world with all its changes through the simplest tools ,widely used in his environment.
Teach children while they are playing..A slogan that embodies our project fully and in its latest transfiguration.
Main questions :
How we can make learning fun and passionate for children ?
How we can provide information to children in an entertaining and non-boring learning atmosphere ?
How we can make learning available for our children ,wherever they are ,whenever they want and however they love it to be?
How we can trust the educational content with an entertaining method?
How we can teach the child foreign languages without compromising the Arabic values and principles ?
Among the main important reasons that prompted us to study this project are :
Pedagogical Issues :
Language is the problem that stands between the child or youth and the scientific researches or technological development .
Expectation of Arab Families surpassed the traditional methods of teaching languages to their children.
Learning languages is not limited to lessons or trainings , but it is based on daily exercises.
Day by Day , traditional teaching is losing passion and interaction with pupils and students.
Traditional education burdened child by creating several differences between the leading digital reality and the approved traditional methods .
Traditional education is not customized according to the students ability to learn.
Traditional education offers the same content to each child without taking into consideration their capacity of assimilation , aspirations and knowledge.
The relationship between child and books becomes characterized with indifference The Arab government and the pedagogical responsible does not take digital education seriously.
Technical Issues in the pedagogic mobile application :
The Arab Mobile Applications does not cope with the needed level of professionalism in development and in content. Crisis of trust created by the weak level of Arab mobile application .
Educational Arab applications usually consist of annoying announcement that is able to alienated the child and provide him an inappropriate content .
The Arab Mobile Application ,does not live up to teaching children via scientific pedagogic methods that started from the lowest to the developed level .
Educational foreign applications targeted foreign language speaker child, thus it is not targeted nor appropriate for the Arabian child who do not speak foreign language .
Foreign applications devote the values and traditions of its owners.
Arabian Child do not find digital spaces that live up with his educational level, which decrease his best use of smart devise.
Education issues are numerous in our Arab world with light difference according to regions, but we can figure the size of the problem through the reality of our youth and the difficulties and language barriers that prevent them from success. However people in charge did not realize the necessity for merging pedagogy with technology to achieve a better result. They dismiss the fact that our children have a very high capacity to technology. Added to that mobile phones and tablets invaded our life and become basic tools in our daily use…So what is preventing us from using these sources to live up with educational level of our children and youth.
