‘Developing a Hybrid Educational Model in a post-Covid World’, was the latest entry in the calendar for SHAPE Education, an ongoing initiative set up to solve educational challenges and connect people through technology. It’s the brainchild of Cambridge Assessment, a non-teaching department of Cambridge University and Cambridge Judge Business School, which organised the event in collaboration with Alef Education, a leading K-12 education technology company based in the United Arab Emirates. Alef Education believes in making learning engaging, exciting and personalised to each individual.
In the opening presentation by Her Excellency, Jameela Al Muhairi, Minister of State for General Education, she said: “The UAE was among the first countries to reopen to the pandemic with resilience and commitment because we took immediate action to close schools in an effort to control the spread of Covid-19 whilst we continued to deliver teaching and learning online.”
The event brought together industry experts and thought leaders to discuss new business models that face the education sector as a whole as a result of Covid-19. The current hybrid model of remote and in-class learning has dramatically changed the way we view technology and has fast-tracked the digital education market at a disruptive rate on a global scale.
All presentations are available on shapeeducation.org, along with opportunity areas identified through cross-sector discussion.
