Schools across the Emirates are set to incorporate AI-enabled learning.

The UAE Ministry of Education is promoting the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in schools and is developing a policy to guide teachers on the use of language models for generative AI. The aim is to incorporate AI-enabled tutoring in schools across the Emirates. The announcement was made by Dr. Ahmad Belhoul Al Falasi, UAE’s Minister of Education at the Alef Education Summit, which focused on the latest digital solutions for the education sector.

The UAE Minister of Education emphasized the importance of training teachers in large language models this summer, to enable students to interact with AI while ensuring they receive the correct education. The Ministry recently committed to adopting cutting-edge technologies such as GPT-powered AI tutors, and utilizing data analytics to better understand where interventions are needed to improve learning outcomes.

Dr. Ahmad Belhoul Al Falasi noted that infrastructure is key to education, which was highlighted during the pandemic when classes and meetings went online, and the need for proper infrastructure in education was brought to light. The UAE Minister for Education also highlighted the potential of data capture to understand where students excel and where they struggle, adding that the role of the teacher should not be overshadowed by technology.

The value of the EdTech sector is forecast to reach $605 billion by 2027, largely due to the proliferation of mobile technology, cloud services, and virtual reality, creating new possibilities for accessible and immersive learning.
