Imagine Education and onQ expand global learning partnership for the Egyptian Ministry of Education
Imagine Education, a player in global solutions, and onQ™, a revolutionary digital content delivery provider for communications and learning have announced an expansion of their partnership, to support and further develop the Teachers First initiative for the Egyptian Ministry of Education.
The program is a core element of the Egyptian Learning Society, which aims to make every Egyptian citizen an active lifelong learner. The announcement was made at the Education World Forum in London.
The Egyptian Ministry of Education will use the Aspire™ solution – which combines Imagine Education's Point-of-Learning™ solutions with onQ's award-winning content delivery platform and patented video conversation technology ― to build upon the early success of the Teachers First program, which reaches 17,000 teachers and 1.7 million students.
The program's foundation is based on a personalized professional framework that outlines the behaviors that make world class teachers, and utilizes the latest mobile technology to capture and reward incremental improvement.
Aspire, which offers the best of face-to-face and digital learning in a single solution, will dramatically aid program participants in developing individual behaviors and accelerating learning ― ultimately enabling deeper engagement, and a more meaningful experience with improved outcomes on both an individual and collective basis.
As the program is rolled out to half a million teachers throughout the country, Aspire further will enable more self-help learning opportunities through interactive video and will build on the strength of teachers to address effective teaching and learning through expanded education communities of practice.
"I believe that we are developing a unique capacity through a program which is systemic, sustainable and scalable, and transforming how teachers carry out continuous professional development, teaching and learning," said Jim Wynn, CEO, Imagine Education.
"We are excited to support the expansion of the strategic Teachers First program as part of the Egypt's broader Learning Society initiative," said Jim Marshall, CEO, onQ. "We anticipate that the learning and growth of Egypt's people will, in turn, contribute to the country's economic capacity."
