Alef Education, an Abu Dhabi-based Education Technology company, has implemented its education system at Maplewood International School, a premier Canadian international school in Abu Dhabi. Over a period of 5 weeks in May and June, Maplewood will be using Alef’s innovative platform to teach Arabic content to their Grade 6 students.

Commenting on the partnership, Geoffrey Alphonso, Chief Executive Officer of Alef Education said: “We are honored to collaborate with Maplewood International School for this innovative program. Our goal is to provide Maplewood’s students with an engaging digital learning experience with high quality Arabic content. The early results look positive and we look forward to extending the implementation of our innovative system at the school.”

Richard Siler, Superintendent of Maplewood International School, said: “Alef’s platform has already demonstrated visible outcomes which have strengthened our belief in this new system of learning. This is certainly an added value to our school and we look forward to expanding our collaboration in the future.”

Alef’s platform has been in use since September 2017 at one of the UAE’s public schools. That implementation has resulted in greater student engagement and independent learning among students. Teachers at that school have also voiced their satisfaction as they are able to get relevant and real-time data on student performances in the classroom. This in turn has allowed them to tailor their lessons to individual students in a more focused manner.

Alef’s platform is a K-12 technology-enabled education solution designed to improve learning outcomes for students. The solution offers tremendous benefits to school administrators, teachers and parents. Alef harnesses the latest technology from artificial intelligence to machine learning to provide predictive analysis of students’ outcomes.
