Halifax-based education solutions provider, Frog, has announced that it has signed agreements with schools across three new continents to provide its latest education technology, FrogLearn.
The schools that will begin using Frog’s technology are:
- Al Khor International School in Qatar: a non-denominational and co-educational international school that offers the National Curriculum of England and the CBSE curriculum of India. The school will use Frog OS for both its English and Indian curriculums
- Talbot County Schools in the US: FrogLearn will be implemented in four of the eight schools that span Talbot County in Maryland, reaching over 4,000 new users. The move puts Frog in a good position to expand into the rest of Talbot County and beyond.
- Trinity Anglican School (TAS) in Australia: a leading school located in Cairns with over 1,000 students.
This is the first time that Frog has developed partnerships with schools in Qatar, the United States of America, and Australia, and highlights the attractiveness of Frog’s pioneering education technology for schools around the world.
Frog has seen an upsurge in approaches from international schools following its success in Malaysia, where it delivers tablet-ready technology to 10,000 schools, putting it at the cutting edge of the education technology market.
Each school will now undergo a consultation process to ensure Frog’s offer is a perfect fit for each institution’s educational needs and supports teachers to implement the technology across the whole school.
The Middle East is a growth area for UK education exports, and Qatar in particular is primed for a technology boom.
Schools in the region appreciate the flexibility that Frog offers, allowing them to incorporate their culture into the product design. Australia has a more mature education technology market, with Trinity Anglican School looking to cement its place as an educational pioneer.
Gareth Davies, Frog managing director, said:
“The success of our pioneering project in Malaysia has opened doors for us around the world.
“The announcement means that schools in four different continents are now seeing the power of technology, and tablets in particular, to inspire pupils and drive up standards of teaching and learning.
“We are excited to be taking our world class technology to the U.S., Australia and the Middle East for the first time, and we hope these initial wins will create further opportunities in these markets in future.”
