inclusion in higher education

Our unique collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

As a highly inclusive school we are also developing the use of assistive technology to enhance the student learning experience for all our students. In partnership with MIT’s Media Lab, we are developing and delivering a bespoke AI project-based curriculum with the secondary students. As part of their timetable, students have lessons at school which are carefully designed by MIT specialists and delivered by our on site MIT consultant.

More recently, we have extended our collaboration with MIT to include children in Years 1 and 2 who are receiving the special opportunity to develop their literacy and social- emotional learning through a robot literacy station designed by researchers at MIT’s Media Lab. The learning station consists of the learning companion robot, Jibo, a tablet with learning activities, and a camera to collect information about the study right here at Dubai Heights Academy. Students, together with Jibo and an MIT consultant, participate in exploring storybooks that target their language learning and curiosity skills, emotion regulation activities that enhance social-emotional learning, and creative exploration activity that scaffolds their creativity.
