ADEK to showcase innovation, digital transformation of education sector at GITEX Global 2021
DUBAI, 17th October, 2021 – Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) will leverage this week’s GITEX Global 2021 – the industry’s largest interconnected technology platform – to spotlight four ICT-related projects and initiatives driving innovation and digital transformation across the Emirate’s education sector.
“Participating at GITEX Global is an opportunity to showcase how ADEK continue to harness cutting-edge technology to drive transformation and innovation across the education sector,” said Amer Al Hammadi, ADEK Under-Secretary.
“Our service-oriented projects demonstrate the Department’s commitment to developing and enhancing digital stakeholder service delivery as part of our ongoing digital transformation, which is in full alignment with Abu Dhabi’s wider digital agenda and the four pillars of Government Services, Government Solutions, Data and Artificial Intelligence, and Ecosystem Enablement.
During GITEX Global, which runs October 17 – 21 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), ADEK showcases its Service Catalog, a unique digital gateway for stakeholders including parents, schools, and industry partners.
Providing access to and management of all ADEK services, the automated system assures process transparency via a centralized list of internal and external services provided by ADEK’s multifaceted divisions, directing users to tailored solutions to their particular requirements.
ADEK also presents its smart Licensing System, which enables nurseries, Private, and Charter Schools to submit new service requests, and track and manage licensing-related applications.
The smart system utilises optical character recognition (OCR) technology which enhances operations to ensure higher efficiency and faster service delivery for stakeholders.
Finally, as part of ADEK’s presence in the Abu Dhabi Government pavilion, Marcos Muller-Habig, Chief Technology Officer at revolutionary coding school 42 Abu Dhabi, will host a talk to explore the disruptive school’s tuition-free peer-to-peer learning methodology on October 19.
Muller-Habig will dive into how the 42 Abu Dhabi syllabus creates flexible learning pathways via a project-based, gamified approach designed to cultivate creativity, collaboration and self-discipline, effectively handing students ownership of their learning journey in the absnce of conventional classrooms or teachers.
