Technology Driven Education & Adapting STEM/STEAM  in Schools

The use of technology in the curriculum is more than a trend in the ever-evolving world of education; it is a need, more so for schools in the UAE. For school and school administrators, therefore, adopting a curriculum that emphasizes STEM/STEAM Education for your students is not only forward thinking but an essential part of making sure your students are ready for the job market.

Understanding STEM/STEAM; A Revolutionary Approach to Teaching

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and its creative counterpart STREAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) represent a new approach to learning. But it goes beyond being an acronym; it is a paradigm that breaks down barriers between subjects and promotes interdisciplinary skills that are vital, for succeeding in the workforce of the 21st century.

Global Insights on the Significance of STEM/STEAM Education

The importance of STEM/STEAM education, and not just any kind, but world-class tech education in preparing students for the jobs of the future cannot be overstated. In fact, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) States, recent long-term policy plans emphasise the ever-increasing need of transition to a knowledge-based economy and preparing highly qualified nationals with credentials in STEM fields to meet the current and future needs of the labor market. Numerous studies have consistently shown that countries excelling in STEM education also experience rates of innovation and economic growth. This correlation highlights the capabilities of these disciplines.
