Education is a key pillar in the UAE 2021 vision and the UAE Centennial 2071 and the Ministry of Education is focused on adopting innovative technology and investing in state-of-the-art systems and platforms to help deliver an exceptional education system. With over Dh10.25 billion committed to education in the UAE in 2019 alone, now is the perfect time to share the campaign with prospective students, raising awareness of both the world class universities in the UAE, and the unmatched intercultural and innovative experiences that make the country a globally recognized nation.
The Ministry is undergoing an educational transformation to ensure technologies that have recently emerged are integrated into a student's education journey and they are accustomed to using them. Several smart online platforms have been developed by the Ministry of Education to help create a seamless experience for students. The nation as a whole has a commitment to innovation and technology, with examples including:
. UAE is the first nation with a government minister dedicated to AI
. Plans are underfoot for the world's first blockchain-powered government
. Dubai has even started testing the introduction of a robotic policeman
The Ministry also established a Data Centre which uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Business Intelligence (BI) to foresee trends, predict student's development and behavior, analyze data, generate statistics and set indicators that guide decision makers on the best approach to further develop the education system. The insights received from the experts that analyze data help the Ministry's leaders make smart well-informed decisions backed up by data.
The Ministry has launched several initiatives to promote innovation and equip students with the skills of tomorrow such as robotics training camp, VEX Robotics Championship and innovation Ambassadors. It has also created 11 FabLabs across its schools to motivate students to become innovators and entrepreneurs.
BETT London will see the participation of 800 leading innovative education technology providers and offer sessions led by industry experts and pre-arranged business meetings that provide learning, networking opportunities and new business leads to attendees.
