BEIRUT: Arabic is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn and children often struggle to acquire Arabic reading and writing skills, complete their course requirements at school and achieve good grades. Siroun Shamigian, founder of Kamkalima, adopted the mission of making Arabic learning more engaging and easier for students. However, a lot of the reading material within school textbooks today is old and students have difficulty relating to it.The new technology serves schools by working to improve student engagement and improve student outcomes in Arabic.In Shamigian's opinion, the software can create more visibility and recognition for great student work.Shamigian said that the biggest challenge at that time was to help Arabic teachers use technology to facilitate their work because of the lack of tools.Kamkalima today has nine employees including Arabic teachers, graphic designers, developers and educational technologists.Shamigian said that Kamkalima is ready to launch and 49 schools have already registered on its platform, including a number of schools in Dubai, where Kamkalima will soon launch.
