Acer is enabling digitized learning for school students across the UAE by providing 45,000 devices to 100+ public schools. The deal is in line with the UAE Vision 2021, which calls for a transformation of the current education system and teaching methods. The strategy also aims for all schools to be equipped with smart systems and devices as a basis for all teaching methods.

Acer has announced a partnership with global leading education technology provider Alef Education, to deliver a new and innovative holistic AI powered learning platform to thousands of students across the UAE.

The partnership with Alef Education marks Acer’s largest deal in the Middle East and Africa to date. The move will see more than 1,000 teachers across public schools equipped and trained on how to use all the devices in collaboration with LearnIT and Alef Education. In addition, Acer also partnered with Leba Innovation – a market leader in providing charging solutions to education establishments – to provide a total of 900 Charging Carts for use with the laptops in the classrooms.
