The Ministry of Education, MoE, and Alef Education have signed an agreement to apply the Alef Education Systems in ten Abu Dhabi-based public schools as of 1st September, 2018.
As per the agreement, Alef’s innovative platform will be used in teaching more than 6,000 male and female students in grades 6, 7 and 8.
It also includes the transformation of the 10 public schools into centres of technology excellence based on Alef Education’s tiered support and technology ecosystem.
The agreement was signed by Lubna Ali Al Shamsi, Deputy CEO of School Operations, and Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO, Alef Education, with Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi, Minister of Education, and Jassim Alseddiqi, CEO, Abu Dhabi Financial Group and Alef Education Board Member, in attendance at the MoE’s headquarters.
The Alef programme enables student to utilise various platforms such as videos and digital references. Each lesson starts with a video and the system employs artificial intelligence to graduate pupils to the next lesson – depending on the number of questions they answer correctly.
The ten schools that will see the implementation of the education systems are Al Suqoor School, Al Asayel School, Fatima Bint Mubarak School, Sa’ad Bin Mo’ath School, Atika Bint Abdel Muttalib School, Makkah School, Al Dhaher School, Al-Khair School, Qatr Al Nada School and Al Nokhba School.
“This innovative educational system revealed good, clear and distinctive results upon its implementation in one of our public schools, and inspired us to expand the scope of the targeted schools and take the implementation process to an advanced stage with 10 more schools in Abu Dhabi,” said Al Hammadi. “This is one step towards achieving an enriching education that will have a great impact on students in terms of their skillset and knowledge.”
