UAE: Hybrid Learning May Remain Until September

Hussain Al Hammadi, Minister for Education, said UAE schools may continue with a hybrid learning system in the next academic year.

In a tweet on Thursday, the Ministry of Education said that a decision on the form of learning chosen for the next academic year cannot be decided now. He also hoped to see al pupils in class in September 2021.

"The nature of schooling in the next academic year depends on the state of public health, and it cannot be predicted now. The matter will be decided based on the latest developments at the time, and it will prioritise the safety and wellbeing of students and educators," the Ministry tweet read.

“As a sector, education was greatly challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. But His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, [Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Seputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces] deemed the provision of food, medicine and education as priorities during this crisis, so we will leave no stone unturned to provide the best to our students,” Al Hammadi said in the interview earlier.

“This is why it was possible for schools to make a smooth shift to distance learning when the pandemic broke out. Our teachers also received professional development to help them ensure learning outcomes during distance learning, and we have received very few complaints about the system, whether it be public schools or private schools,” Al Hammadi said.

Al Hammadi also thanked parents “We have had many learnings from this pandemic, and remote learning is one these systems. As we go forward, we want to protect students’ skills, both academic and extracurricular, even if the mode of learning is virtual,” he said.
