Viva, a leading telecom firm in Bahrain, and top IT retailer iMachines will provide the British School of Bahrain with latest iPads in support of advanced digital learning.
An agreement was signed yesterday (February 15) at the school campus in Hamala.
Viva wholesale enterprise chief Nezar Banabeela said it would also enhance students' eLearning experience, the first such initiative in the country.

Teachers and students will benefit from the customised eLearning tools available on iPads supported by secure end-to-end network connectivity and cloud computing services, he added.
