From researching term paper topics on tablets to presenting design models with interactive projectors, technology is transforming the state of education. Gone are the days of passive learning as students now hold the tools to counter a teacher’s theory or check the framework of a complicated equation with just a click of a button.

“There’s no question whether or not technology has impacted education. The real issue is the approach we take when we handle the changes that it brings,” says Hossam Omar, assistant director of information technology at the American University of Kuwait (AUK) — a postsecondary school in Kuwait City based on the American model of higher education.

Established in 2003, the private liberal arts institution has experienced firsthand the challenges that come with bringing the latest technology to a campus of 2,500 students and 350 faculty and staff members. Fortunately for the school, however, they have a strong relationship with Lenovo to help guide them along the way.
