BEIRUT, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- An exhibition on educational technologies (edtech) is being held in Lebanon's capital Beirut to introduce educators to the latest innovative technologies that can be used to enhance students' learning processes.

The three-day exhibition, which kicked off on Wednesday, is the first national educational technology exhibition and has seen the participation of dozens of edtech services providers.

Nour Malak, sales manager at Electro S Lab, an electronic engineering firm in Beirut, said her company has provided equipment for robotics education in three schools and four universities across the country.

"Lebanon improved a lot in the field of technology education as schools have been encouraging their students to be active in this area. And social media played a role in creating awareness about the importance of teaching robotics to children at a young age," Malak said.

Krystel Yaacoub, CEO of another edtech company, also stated the enthusiasm of Lebanese schools to renovate their education methods is high.

"It is obvious that schools and universities are well aware that the world has advanced a lot technologically and they are showing great interest in our services. But they are a bit tight on budget as they prefer to use their money for teachers' salaries amid the current crisis," Yaacoub told Xinhua.

Malak said the educational institutions need more funds to spend on such courses, adding that schools and universities cannot force students to pay for such classes during the current economic crisis. Enditem
