Education in the UAE has always been one of the highest priorities. The UAE has focused on educating both men and women. In 1975, the rate of adult literacy was 54 percent among men and 31 percent among women. Today, literacy rates for both genders are close to 95 percent.
The greatest use that can be made of wealth is to invest it in creating generations of educated and trained people.
used to say HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, father of the UAE.
New initiatives are being launched at all educational levels. A key area of focus has been to transform K to 12 programs, to ensure that UAE students are fully prepared to attend universities around the world and compete in the global marketplace.
Abu Dhabi Education Council is pushing students to think about a career in space, energy, robotics, engineering or maybe medicine. To help guide the students in that direction, Adec launched 1 year ago the Journey of Discovery: Innovation campaign in which elements of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (Stem subjects) are integrated into the K-12 curriculum across public schools. More and more schools will be equipped with innovation centres including specialised laboratories in collaboration with major technology companies.
We had chance to visit Shining Star Education Training, an education based training company and assist some of the sessions. The school is offering quality, carefully crafted state-of-the-art and in-depth training programs for students at every level. The programs are self-paced, guided, and designed to address real classroom needs. The programs promotes the learning of STEM concepts, in line with ADEC guidelines, as well as the much needed skills such as collaboration, communication, innovation, and project management that are necessary for success in life. Education today faces challenges worldwide, since following traditions is no longer enough. The way knowledge is passed on to our children is just as important as deciding on what to teach future generations. We have to prepare student today for the tasks of tomorrow.
