Education has never been more exciting in the UAE and across the Middle East as leaders evolve their education systems more ambitiously than ever before. We are honoured to hear from the future gazers who are implementing ground-breaking reforms and policies across the region. 

09.20 – 09.40
Ministerial keynote:Realising the UAE Centennial 2071 goals on education
H.E. Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi, Minister of Education, Ministry of Education - UAE

09.40 – 10.00
A New Era of Education
Many projects are underway in the Arab School to develop educational outcomes which will achieve the national goals. This is without a doubt a result of the national strategies put in place to increase the quality of operations. Most of these projects are threatened with failure to achieve their goals due to the introduction of education technology. Some claim that the role of the teacher will be obsolete in the near future, and this raises the question of the necessity for schools if we can teach our children using new tools. This session will address these topics and questions.
​Keynote:  Dr. Khalifa Ali Al Suwaidi, Representative for the Board of Trustees, Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Distinguished Academic Performance - UAE

A recent survey conducted by LinkedIn and PwC stated that 1.3million jobs could be created across the GCC if students had greater access to digital education and digital training opportunities. When we think of digital transformation, we think of schools and universities developing into technological learning hubs, but how can we ensure that students don’t get left behind in the process and can contribute positively to the future digital economy?

10.00 – 10.30
Technology has changed the way we all learn. Our schools and learning environments have greater potential to empower every student to learn at their own pace, in their own way, with insights driving a more personal connection. This session will share how technology will power the future of personalized and predictive learning environments and empower educators and schools to shift the dynamics of the traditional school and classroom. The era of automation is winding down…the time for true transformation is upon us
Keynote: Mr. Anthony Salcito, Vice President – Worldwide Education, Microsoft - USA

10.30 – 10.50
Classroom Management – Learn with Technology
As the traditional classroom is shifting into multiple learning spaces with growing availability of digital resources, we as Lenovo help teachers and students make the most of those innovative instruments. Because for us, this transformation goes beyond conventional hardware preoccupations, and should include content, management, and multidirectional interactions
Mr. Philippe Maigrot, Solution Advocate, Lenovo MEA - UAE

10.50 – 11.15
Raising the Bar for Learning with Technology
How do we help our students learn today and prepare them for a rapidly changing world? A driving force behind this change is technology. It affects the way we communicate, the way we work, the way we live day to day. It also empowers every individual — and every learner — to create amazing things and make a difference in the world. But first, we need to raise the bar for what’s expected, and what’s possible, for learning with technology.
