India is ready to collaborate with the UAE to establish a global educational center.
According to a diplomat from India stationed here, India will be pleased to work alongside the UAE to help the country become a worldwide educational hub in addition to a financial hub.
At a global education summit held here, Tadu Mamu, Consul (Press Information, Culture and Labour) of the Indian Embassy, stated that the epidemic had greatly released the potential of online learning and was drawing students.
She claimed that edu-tech and the physical form of learning needed to be balanced.
She claimed that in addition to being a financial centre, the government of the UAE is working to make the country a global center for education.
“We see it progressing, since many large universities have chosen Abu Dhabi and the UAE as their headquarters. India will be delighted to participate in these plans, according to Mamu.
She added that there are unusually strong relationships between India and the UAE in both the political and cultural spheres, and that these ties have become stronger under the leadership of the two countries.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and beyond sent educators, specialists, edu-tech leaders, and students to the conclave in Dubai on Thursday to discuss important topics relating to education, with a particular focus on digital technology and its potential to support learning.
The American University in the Emirates (AUE), one of Dubai’s top colleges, collaborated with Kyra Global, a firm established in Dubai by seasoned Indian publisher KPR Nair, to host the two-day conference, titled “Schools for the Future.”
Around 250 people showed up in person, and thousands more participated electronically from all around the world to brainstorm ideas for future school designs and construction.
Anyone with ideas and a desire to work with the Indian Consulate is welcome, the Indian ambassador said. “Our push towards innovation and the advancement of younger brains is always a focus, and this is one subject where we are really keen.”
She claimed that the opening of an IIT campus in Abu Dhabi, which was announced as part of the trade agreement last year, will boost bilateral cooperation.
Nair, the founder and chairman of Konark Publishers, stated in his remarks that he founded Kyra Global last year as a platform for the healthy exchange of ideas and knowledge on important issues that affect humankind globally. Nair also stated that he is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to spread learning.
According to Muthanna G. Abdul Razzaq, the founder and president of the American University in the United Arab Emirates, the success of schools depends on how well-equipped their teachers are to support students’ learning in every aspect.
In his remarks during the opening session, Frank Islam, an Indian-American businessman and philanthropist who serves on the US Commission on Presidential Scholars, suggested that in order to fully realize the potential of 21st-century education, schools of the future should be diverse.
Islam participated digitally and concentrated on the duties of the “edupreneur” in influencing academia, students, and society.
