By: Cesilia Faustina

digital educationCOVID-19 or not, there’s no point in denying that digitalization is the future. We all live in a world where technology is slowly becoming our new overlords, and everyday activities tend to involve technology these days. The education sector is one great example of this.

Bureaucrats have long been criticized for not doing enough with the education system. From lack of equality to a bureaucratic system, there are tons to criticize about the way things are done. In the US, critics of public education argue that schools completely run on bureaucracy with many public education being tied to so many stakeholders, ergo, insufficiently distribute education to all students. Even one of the countries with some of the best education systems, such as Finland, is being criticised.

By: Omar Abdul-Hafiz

eLearning in the GCC region The global coronavirus outbreak and the shift towards social distancing have posed very serious challenges on several levels. These challenges have sent the education sector across the globe racing to find solutions to cope with the urgent need for the distance learning alternative. In the UAE, for instance, plans to switch to distance learning were carried out from as early as the first week of March. It began with a swift closure of schools and universities which was issued across the country, then studies continued remotely. Following that, the possibility of extending the distance learning period hung in the air until it was confirmed on the 30th of March that it will continue until June.

How does the Student Information System (SIS) facilitate the education process?

By: Omar Abdul-Hafiz

Education, like all other sectors, has been influenced greatly by the emergence and advancement of information technology. And this has not been the case through the past 10 or so years only. In fact, this influence goes way further back than that.

One such old example of this influence was in 1988 when Automate The Schools (ATS), a K-12 student information system, was implemented across all of New York City’s public schools. It has been in use ever since. The system was written using the Computer Corporation of America’s (CCA) Model 204 database management software, and it facilitated the administration of over 1 million students in NYC’s public schools.

By: Cesilia Faustina

I’m sure right about now people are sick of being under quarantine, stress is mounting, anxieties are rising, people feel like they are basically losing their minds. It is a normal feeling to have and one that is highly expected during these times. So, the question is, what are we supposed to do?

There surely have been plenty of talk about the importance of mental health during quarantine and rightfully so, I’m sure I am speaking for everyone when I say, our mental health is deteriorating. Being social creatures, it is not easy to continue a life of virtual interaction, which is why doing something just for yourself may be the key.

The power of creativity

Creative activities are known to be a buffer for anxiety, and it seems like a great solution to battle the rising amount of stress of being alone, uncertainty of income, fear of being sick and more.
