The Ministry of Education and the
Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Learning Programme implemented a joint class that
brought together Grade 6 students from Umm Suqeim Girls School in Dubai and
their colleagues from the same class in Finland using e-learning technology.
The students from both sides discussed scientific concepts of mathematics. The
joint study class is an introduction to an integrated project initiated by the
Ministry of Education in cooperation with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart
Learning Programme to transfer students through modern technology to wider and
more open learning environments.
This step reflects the advanced
level of the various government schools. They possess a high-level
technological infrastructure that meets future aspirations and provides our
students with the best educational practices in a modern way. This will enhance
the academic standard of our students by sharing experience and knowledge about
all scientific subjects with their peers in other countries. This will increase
our students' competitiveness and expand their world-class knowledge.
The joint class focused on the
concepts of measurement in mathematics, using the digital content to promote
this concept. The lesson aimed to develop communication skills in the age of
technology by providing extracurricular learning, transfer of experience among
students and learning about the cultures of students from all over the world.
Our students introduced the Finnish students to the meaning of the blessed
month of Ramadan and its underlying high values. This is the first step in the
future cooperation between the UAE school and the Finnish school. The
initiative aims to develop students' skills in communication and collaborative
learning in Mathematics and how to link mathematics to real life.
Smart learning in the Mohammed Bin
Rashid Smart Learning Programme provides the UAE students with all the
necessary technological tools and applications to keep up with the
technological revolution in the digital millennium. The program is also keen to
develop creativity skills, higher thinking skills and collaborative e-learning
beyond the boundaries of space and time. The program also provides the
interactive digital content that enriches the educational process so as to
bring the UAE school to the highest levels of electronic maturity and enable
them to occupy advanced positions up the ladder of global competitiveness.
