According to a recent survey conducted by Microsoft Arabia team, 97% of educators in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region feel that technology plays a very important role in transforming the education systems. This survey was conducted between the educators from primary, through to secondary and tertiary institutions along with the academic governing bodies across the region.

But surprisingly, only 32% of people surveyed are implementing the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and digital literacy as part of their curriculum. 52% of the survey respondents described the reason behind it as the lack of budget and training to properly optimize the use of technology in the classroom

More than half the educators highlighted the fact that having access to mobile devices is a very important tool to implement technology in the classroom for educational purpose. Also, 70% of educators surveyed believe that creating virtual classrooms and implementing e-learning solutions is an important step to improve the education quality.

There are many Microsoft products like Office 365 Education, OneNote etc. designed specifically for educational purposes and are based on Cloud Computing Technology. Also other Microsoft products like Skype, Sway, Minecraft Education Edition, Dynamics and even Xbox can be used for digital classrooms.
