If you had to choose between an ill-educated human teacher or independent study via a well-designed software which would you prefer for your child? That’s a question that many parents in poor countries face thanks to poor education standards. While almost all primary-age children almost everywhere in the world are now in school, many are learning “next to nothing,” the main issue being that there are too few teachers that those that exist aren’t qualified. Tech seeks to change that by easing the burden on these overloaded teachers, or potentially replacing them in extremely rural areas.
“A new October 2018 review of class-size research around the world finds at most small benefits to small classes when it comes to reading. In math, it found no benefits at all.
Andreas Schleicher, director of the education and skills unit at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, debunks the "myth” that “smaller classes always mean better results.” He points out that top-performing nations, such as Japan, South Korea and China, tend to have larger classes but spend more of their resources on giving their teachers time during the workday to produce good lessons or give students extra attention outside of class.“
The UAE is emerging as one of the fastest growing hubs for high-performance schools in the world. The quality of education in UAE schools has evolved and is only getting better.
UAE schools are increasingly choosing an immersive learning approach to deliver their curriculum. Immersive learning with VR, innovative digital content, STEM, robotics and Artificial Intelligence has quickly made its way into the classrooms and has become an essential element. These technologies offer students an ideal platform for creation and innovation. Most importantly, they go beyond the standard & traditional learning styles.
