"Education Resources Exhibition" at Haigazian University

Under the theme "Promoting Reading Awareness", the Education Society
at Haigazian University organized its first Education Resources
Exhibition on Thursday, 28 February 2008, pooling together English,
Arabic and Armenian publishers, like Scholastic, Eduguide, Malik's,
and Hamazkaine.

The exhibition puts at the disposal of school teachers of the basic
education grades, recent children's books, colorful school boards,
as well as the most up to date audiovisual techniques.

In her opening speech, Mayssa El Masri, Chair of the Education Society,
said that the exhibition is dedicated to a better future for the new
generation of students.

"Teaching is the profession that teaches all other professions,
therefore all the technology of the mind is present here for our
future educators", El Masri added.

Dr. David Tawil, Chairman of the Education Department at Haigazian
University, commented on the issue of cheap commercial books, stressing
on the fact that people and societies in general are discriminated
and differentiated from each other as to what they read. In the same
context, Dr. Arda Ekmekji, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences
reiterated the importance of books, especially university educational
books that stay with each one of us forever.

The Education Resources Exhibition runs till Saturday 1st of March
2008, from 10:00 a.m till 6:00 p.m. and is open to teachers, students,
and parents.
