Samsung Electronics Levant Co. Ltd. (SELV) has installed a smart classroom for Children with Autism in Lebanon. In partnership with the Lebanese Autism Society (LAS), Samsung installed a smart screen television and tablets to support the development and education of children with Autism at the flagship LAS location at Collège Du Sacré-Coeur Frères, Gemmayzeh.
“At the heart of nearly every experience where people connect with technology, we unlock human potential,” said Mr. Chungsup Lee, President, Samsung Electronics Levant Co. Ltd. (SELV). “By partnering with the Lebanese Autism Society to install a smart classroom, we’re creating a collaborative culture that uses innovation and technology to explore opportunities for these children to live a fuller life in a connected world.”
This classroom provides Children with Autism a safe area where they can learn and experience new material with the assistance of Samsung products and technology. The initiative with LAS is one aspect of SELV’s corporate social responsibility program which conducts activities to generate value in the community by addressing social issues.
