Abu Dhabi, UAE – Alef Education, the leading UAE-based education technology company and The British School Al Khubairat (BSAK), partnered to implement the Alef education system at the school in September 2018.

Under the partnership, teachers at BSAK will be using Alef Education’s innovative platform across Arabic, Social Studies and Islamic Studies subject matters. The scope will cover students in Grades 6,7 and 8, starting for the current school year 2018-2019.

Through its deployment at the Al Asayel public school in Abu Dhabi in the 2017-2018 academic year, the Alef education system demonstrated remarkable results: There was a marked improvement in the participation, interaction and engagement of students in the learning process, as well as a significant advancement in learning outcomes. The success at Al Asayel school led to Alef Education implementing its system in 9 more public schools in this school year.

Alef Education’s education system brings together a blend of the latest technology and pedagogical approaches geared towards learners of today.

The ‘Alef Platform’ has three main pillars:

(1) A fun and easy-to-use digital learning environment, developed by leading technology experts based in Abu Dhabi.

(2) High quality digital content developed to engage and stimulate learning with a blend of videos, interactivities and games all linked to the UAE Ministry of Education curriculum and learning outcomes across three grades (Grade 6,7 & 8).

(3) Real time data provided within each lesson to truly enable educators to support personalized learning and identify student strengths and weaknesses.

Commenting on the new partnership, Geoffrey Alphonso, Chief Executive Officer of Alef Education said: “We applaud this partnership with The British School Al Khubairat, one of the most established and prestigious schools in the Middle East, and welcome this opportunity to effectively exploit joint efforts to provide the students with a best-in-class education system. The introduction of our innovative educational system in ten Abu Dhabi public schools, two major private schools in the UAE and two schools in the USA is a significant development in Alef Education’s long-term vision to become a global leader in transformational technology-enabled education solutions. We believe that one of our main instruments of success is our innate ability to secure cooperative partnerships with schools and educational institutions, and we look forward to further extend the implementation of our holistic technology-based system into other schools in the UAE and beyond.”

Mark Leppard MBE, Headmaster of The British School Al Khubairat, said: “At The British School Al Khubairat, we are continually working towards our vision to provide a world-class British education, inspiring all our students to exceed expectations. In this context, the partnership with Alef Education’s holistic education system is a logical step in providing our students with the scaffolding necessary to achieve 21st-century learning outcomes in Arabic, Social Studies and Islamic Studies. The significant outcomes achieved so far by Alef Education strengthen our belief that it adds value to our advanced educational scope, and we expect to expand it in the future.”

About Alef Education

Alef Education is an education technology company based in the United Arab Emirates that was founded in 2015. The idea of Alef first came about in 2015 where it was conceptualized as a technology-enabled primary mode of education system to address the needs of the local public school system in the United Arab Emirates. From that concept, the company’s vision soon expanded to include digital educational transformation within the K-12 sector globally.

In 2016, Alef Education launched a futuristic Microschool with a custom-made learning platform. In 2017, the Alef education system was successfully introduced to 1,000 students at a public school in Abu Dhabi. This year, in 2018, Alef Education is serving 10 public schools in UAE, two private schools in UAE and two private schools in the USA.

The journey of Alef Education has just begun and many breakthroughs and transformative approaches to the future of education, enabled by technology, are currently under development. Alef Education is committed to building engaged learning experiences for the 21st century learner.
