Visitors to the fully rebuilt WISE website (www.wise-qatar.org) will discover the WISE ed.review and WISE ed.hub tools, dynamic platforms where audiences can read about the most innovative developments in global education, as well as directly discuss prevalent and emerging trends.
WISE ed.review features especially chosen reports addressing the most relevant and pressing issues in education, offering leading education practitioners, opinion leaders and other audiences with insights and trends from around the world. Taken from sources in five languages (English, Arabic, French, Spanish, and Chinese), this rich resource tool also includes exclusive blogs, reports, videos, and articles on innovative education practices. Along with a daily summary in English, a review of the week’s top international stories are provided in Arabic.
Among the original content available on the WISE ed.review, there are a series of EduDebates, which bring together thought leaders from around the world to debate the most relevant issues - from technology and the role of teachers, to STEM and STEAM, and game-based learning.
An online extension of the WISE Summit, the community-led WISE ed.hub service promotes innovative education projects and practices that have had a transformative impact. This provides grassroots practitioners around the world with a platform through which they can interact, share best practices and find solutions to common challenges. A dedicated moderator is available on the WISE ed.hub to bring practitioners together and guide the discussions.
Commenting on the launch of these new services, H.E. Sheikh Abdulla bin Ali Al-Thani, Ph.D., Chairman of WISE, Qatar Foundation, said: “Today WISE launches new services aimed at informing, connecting and inspiring education change-makers. I’m convinced that people working on building the future of education will be eager to explore new thoughts about education coming from different parts of the world on the ed.review. I also know that all education innovators are looking to collaborate further, get ideas, and find solutions. I hope that the ed.hub will help them achieve these objectives.”
