Local Technology Partnerships
Leading Global Education values its partnerships with local UAE schools. Technology support varies according to the needs of each individual school. For example, in Al Ain, we have worked as a World Robotics Olympiad sponsor through the ADEC-WRO partnership. We work within schools on an individual basis and provide recommendations on how to empower classroom teachers in the use of a range of technology tools.
Education Improvement Initiatives
We value the synergy of collaborative work and are keen to direct schools to other high-quality technology initiatives. In particular, we have close links with:
Lego NXT and WeDo Robotics
Mindstorms NXT has been rolled out nationally by the Abu Dhabi Education Council. The NXT Robotics framework is delivered in partnership with schools, local specialists and consultant specialists focusing on three elements: encouraging students to be technologically competent; innovative, creative, problem solvers; and collaborative workers.
"ADEC has embraced robotics as a fun way to interest students in the fields that are vital to the future of Abu Dhabi and will help them lead innovation in these fields in the future. ADEC is highly supporting the prominent technological event as part of its mission to produce world-class learners who are loyal to their culture and heritage and are prepared to meet global challenges." - from ADEC press release 19 Jan. 2011
