Title of event/project:
Developing a network of Bilingual ACCESS-STEAM Cubs in the MENA Region: An introduction
URL to project/event starting point:
There is an urgent call for an educational reform in the MENA Region nowadays simply because time changes and we need to adapt to this change and prepare this generation to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The breakthroughs of technology have set the bar higher than before for the workforce to meet nowadays needs. There are thousands of unfilled jobs in the meantime; simply because the candidates are not endowed with the skills for today’s jobs. Our goal is to prepare the "bilingual access-steammists" of the future who will have the skills for such jobs. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math have always been the key factors to the greatness of all the civilizations. Mathematical innovations, technology and scientific knowledge as well engineering have always been paving the way for any civilization to rise up and flourish. Now, the language of science and technology is English. For this reason; the bilingual approach to teaching STEM subjects in both English and Arabic or any L1since an early age paves the way for this change.
Project/event directions for participation:
A Bilingual STEM teacher from the region, a 21st century teacher, an organisation leader or education leader, please Join our private community. Looking forward to your ideas and support.
