According to ITIDA, strengthening the eLearning bond between teachers and parents is a pre-condition to the successful implementation and faster rollout of eLearning for students.
Dr. Hazem Abdelazim, CEO ITIDA, says:
“eLearning is not just for students. School administrators have to embrace e-processes in the ‘back office’ of schools and engage parents in the eLearning experience for it to be really effective.”
Abdelazim adds, “Many teachers and pupils across the Middle East realize the benefits of eLearning across all curriculum subjects through collaborative resource sharing and adopting pedagogical practices to prepare students for the new knowledge based economy.”
“Now is the time to engage parents as part of the eLearning process and that requires a change of mindset among school administrators and guardians,” adds Abdelazim.
ITIDA has assembled an impressive panel of experienced eLearning practitioners, including Dr. John Zook who is a special advisor to the UAE Ministry of Education, and Wael Amin, CEO of ITWorx, the Egyptian professional IT services firm that is a global training centre for the Microsoft Learning Gateway (MLG) solution.
Dr. Hazem Abdelazim continued, “This workshop will show that it’s not a case of ‘whether’ but ‘when’ to introduce eLearning solutions to better prepare students for the future and involve parents in the learning process, too. This workshop will be highly topical and relevant.”
Identified by the Yankee Group as a global outsourcing hotspot because of its abundance of multilingual and technical graduates, Egypt’s software development sector is helping to set international standards in eLearning.
The ITIDA eLearning workshop will take place at 10am on Wednesday 22nd October at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center (DICEC), Gitex Technology Week, Hall 3, Stand 310.
