As of the beginning of the next academic year (Sept. 23), all smart schools in Iran will be evaluated and ranked on the basis of students and teachers’ access to information and communication technologies.
The move is aimed at clarifying the status of schools and helping upgrade school equipment to gradually convert them into smart educational centers, Mehr News Agency reported.
According to Mehdi Sharafi, the head of ICT’s Office at the Education Ministry, of the total 108,000 schools in the country, only 22% are currently considered to be smart.
"With the implementation of the upcoming evaluation plan, these smart schools will be thoroughly inspected and ranked, and the amount of digital content offered to the students will be reviewed," he said.
