During Finland at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Education Forum, industry leaders and experts from the UAE and Finland’s education sector will discuss:
We have brought together experts in the fields of teacher training, curriculum, well-being, EdTech solutions and artificial intelligence to share their insights, knowledge and guidance in a series of expert interviews, panel discussions and live Q&As.
Finland is a pioneer in the education sector and is well known for its progressive approach, ensuring all industries are equipped with the research, technology and knowledge needed to develop beyond their current capabilities. Our excellent learning outcomes are the result of research-based pedagogy and our innovative approach to teaching and learning. Finland's world-class education system forms the foundation of the country's success, delivering solutions to local and global challenges. Finland is frequently ranked as one of the best countries globally for education, making Finland viable for process simulation by other education-focused governments.
Similarly, education sits at the heart of the UAE’s Vision 2021 National Agenda. As the country strives to provide a first-rate education system, teaching methods are undergoing transformations, smart systems are being adopted across schools and universities, and significant importance is being placed on pre-school enrollment.
