Expo 2020 Dubai has developed a series of online learning resources that can help educators in the UAE create fun and forward-thinking lessons.

Created by the Expo School Programme in collaboration with volunteer teachers from across the country, the materials are "designed to engage, inspire and spark the curiosity in students" on the journey to 2020. 

Some 74 UAE-based educators worked with the Expo School Programme to develop lesson plans and learning materials. The free-to-use resources explore topics of the future within the context of Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, and three key sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

Six topics – future careers, the circular economy, bioengineering, future cities, energy and future mobility, are already available on the Expo School Programme website. Alya Al-Ali, Director – Expo School Programme, Expo 2020 Dubai, said:

“We are committed to empowering and inspiring young people, which is why we are so excited to share these engaging learning resources with educators. We look forward to collaborating with even more educators to create fun, novel and exciting activities for students to enjoy on the journey to 2020 and beyond.”

Gemma Donovan, Lead Teacher, Al Sha’arawi School, who was involved in the development of the learning resources, said:

“By integrating the Expo School Programme’s learning resources into their lessons, teachers in the UAE can play an active role in preparing their students for the world of tomorrow, while igniting their curiosity about the biggest ever event to take place in the Arab world.”

Gauri Meghani, Head of Curriculum, Kindergarten Starters, added that it was exciting to contribute to the development of lesson plans that cover topics of the future. "Due to the ever-increasing pace of innovation, it can be difficult to introduce these themes to students in an engaging way.”

The Programme will continue to collaborate with schools across the UAE in the lead-up to the next World Expo and throughout the six months of the event.
