The curriculum for schools in the United Arab Emirates is changing rapidly in response to the UAE Vision 2021. Critically the UAE wants to be among the best countries in the world by 2021 and for us its been a pleasure to work colleagues at the Ministry of Education to make Blippit part of the new Design & Technology curriculum. The pace has been remarkable.
“…the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda emphasises the development of a first-rate education system, which will require a complete transformation of the current education system and teaching methods. The National Agenda aims for all schools, universities and students to be equipped with Smart systems and devices as a basis for all teaching methods, projects and research.” Read: First-Rate Education System.
The MoE has an Office 365 integrated sign in for their schools to use with Blippit to make life easier. Uniquely, theirs is a bespoke Blippit App Maker cloud that’s only accessible to schools in the UAE to bring performance enhancements and meet their data requirements.
A new publication has been created thanks to teachers in the UAE supported by colleagues from the Ministry of Education. Teachers are now using this publication thanks to their in-country training in 2018.
As the schools in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the Northern Emirates get to grips with the App Maker and begin their learning, we looking forward to seeing how they progress with their new digital skills, explorations of app making, coding and creativity.
