ABU DHABI: Addressing an audience of more than 900 teachers and experts from 80 countries around the globe, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, emphasised the importance of adapting teaching methods and curriculums to the demands of the 21st century.

In his keynote speech at the opening of the Qudwa 2017 Global Teachers’ Forum, Sheikh Abdullah said: “We are living in an era where old concepts are fading away and new ones are continuing to emerge on a daily basis. Only a few decades ago, we couldn’t have imagined that e-currency would likely replace paper currency, that text messages and emails would substitute traditional postal services. Unfortunately, it seems that curriculums have not kept pace with the times.”

Sheikh Abdullah added: “As apps, search engines and smartphones continue to become more intertwined with our daily lives, traditional curriculums will no longer be relevant. It is therefore critical that we come together to promote a new concept of education, centred around recent transformations in society.”
