Iran is introducing a smart phone that can track every student’s activity and alert teachers when students fail to follow instructions.
The new system will be tested on the National Center for Education Statistics and Education Research (NCESER) at Tehran University, which is under the supervision of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
The government has spent billions on improving Iran’s education system over the past decade, which has resulted in a sharp decline in the country’s education level and a rapid rise in its poverty rate.
Teachers are increasingly required to teach to the computer.
But the computer is not a replacement for teachers and most Iranians lack the skills necessary to teach effectively.
A computer-based learning system is a “major improvement” over traditional classroom teaching, said Ahmad Mahdavi, a professor of computer science at Tehran’s Islamic University.
Teaching is an important part of Iran’s educational system, he said, adding that many Iranian students are interested in learning to read, write, and write in math, science, and English.
The goal is to make the country a top-tier education destination, he added.
“We will make our kids’ education more efficient, more relevant, more connected with the rest of the world,” Mahdavisaid.
“And the way we do that is through smart technology.”
The new app, called “MyEK,” is the brainchild of the university’s Institute for Educational Computing.
It is an open-source application that is free for anyone to download and use.
It is designed to provide real-time feedback on students’ performance, and track students’ progress in various subjects.
Teacher and student profiles can be updated with student progress, including their test scores, achievement, and their academic achievements.
Students are encouraged to use the app, but are not required to have it installed.
“The app provides real-world feedback about the student’s progress, and allows us to know when a student is not progressing as planned,” NCESER deputy director Mohammad Reza Faraji told Al Jazeera.
The app was developed by NCESERT, which oversees the Iranian education system.
The system will run for five years and is expected to be fully operational by 2019.
It will allow teachers to track students on a daily basis, allowing them to intervene if they think they have missed a grade, for example.
The system is designed for the classroom environment, said Ali Bajazadi, director of NCESERC, which will oversee the system.
“Teachers will use it to monitor the students’ movements and the students will use the apps to track their progress,” he said.
“Teachers can even take students into the classroom and track them in the app.”
Bajazadisays the app is being tested with schools from primary to college level, but NCESERS officials expect it will be used in universities as well.
The development will provide students with an education “that’s completely different from what’s in classrooms,” Bajazi said.
The application will also be used by students who are not enrolled in classes, he noted.
Iran’s education department has a history of making significant investments in educational technology.
In 2012, it launched a nationwide computerized curriculum, known as the Iran Digital Basic, that aimed to make learning more efficient and more relevant.
The curriculum was later expanded and expanded to include the use of the internet.
Television and internet services were also made available to students in a bid to improve access to educational content.
In addition to the education technology program, Iran has also established a National Science Foundation, which aims to boost science and technology education in the Middle East.
The country also launched a national mobile phone network in 2012.
The first phone was launched in 2014 and is still in use today.
Iran is one of the few Arab countries that have not adopted a free internet and television service.
