Workshops and Courses Designed on Order
Leading Global Education’s Professional Development Program increases the learning and achievement of students by developing the capacity of teachers to use research-based instructional strategies. We do this by offering training programs of consistently high quality to schools that are participating in ADEC’s 10 Year Strategic Plan.
All schools in the Abu Dhabi Emirate are required to demonstrate the use of technology across all subjects. School inspections will be looking at not only the functioning of a computer center, but especially how your technology resources are being used to enhance teaching and learning. New guidelines are expected to follow soon on teacher and principal evaluations, which will detail the specific instances of technology use expected by 21st Century educators.
