His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Wednesday launched Digital School to provide accredited online education to students wherever they are.
Sheikh Mohammed made the announcement on twitter.
“We launched the Digital School to provide accredited online education to students wherever they are,” tweeted Sheikh Mohammed.
“There are millions of children across the world with no access to education due to war and conflict. If we didn’t try to address this knowledge gap, we will fail to give our future generations a healthy environment to grow up in and contribute to their societies,” Sheikh Mohammed said.
Revealing the details about the digital school, he further tweeted that the School will seek digital learning accreditation with global bodies.
"Our initial trial phase starts with 20,000 students and we aim to reach one million students by 2026," he said.
His Highness also issued Decision No. (24) of 2021 appointing Sheikh Saeed bin Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum as Chairman of Hatta Sports and Cultural Club.
The settings and scenes that we are crafting are immersive, but also expansive: they are designed to expand what the audience thinks possible — for the world, for the future and for themselves.
