The BBC’s Technology correspondent, Rory Cellan-Jones’s interview with Abdul provides a deep insight into the learning approaches that have been implemented.
Through ThinkSimple Ltd Abdul provides strategy for leadership teams across the globe in order to ensure that a successful family based learning programme with iPads is achieved. The impact of this is on Leadership and organisation has led the way in its development of learning technologies, with a 1:1 family iPad programme and AppleTVs as a learning solution that allows the use of 21st century learning resources and streamlined productivity in an educational setting, yet accessible from anywhere.
He endorses equipping staff and students with tablet devices that allow for a range of benefits from cost efficiencies to expanding data and knowledge access. It also allows for a radical change in approach to space in mind: moving away from traditional offices to create more fluid areas that maximise the capabilities of new technologies to minimise the need for fixed location working.
Abdul has engaged with a number of Ministries of Education including India, Australia, Singapore and Iceland in a range of activities including workshops and thought leadership conversations. Abdul currently supports schools in Denmark, Sweden and India with the development of a clear mobile based learning strategy.
