GEMS Education announced that the company has signed an agreement with Microsoft Gulf for launching the 'State-of The Art Education Solutions' across the network of GEMS Schools in the U.A.E.
The 'State-of The Art Education Solutions' will include the launch of learning gateways in GEMS Schools. The aim of the programme is to inspire personal responsibility for learning in tandem with class based learning. The entire programme would be supported through Microsoft certified training for teachers and the installation of Microsoft certified ICT labs. The integrated framework will provide parents, students and teachers access to online lessons and tutorials. Students would be able to access learning and express themselves in new and innovative ways and would be able to participate in online group work, bringing a new dimension to teaching and learning. The work on the GEMS and Microsoft 'State of the Art Education Solutions' and 'School of the Future' projects are first phase of implementations in GEMS schools to be launched in 2007.
