New hi-tech curriculum

 Bahrain is introducing a new school curriculum, with an eye on the future.

It will add a renewed focus on artificial intelligence, robotics and the expanding digital world, Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi said yesterday.

The new syllabus, to be included for the new school year that starts next month, aims to keep abreast of local, regional and global developments, he said.

Students enrolled in the second and third primary (Classes II and III) will be studying artificial intelligence and technology.

The ministry has also incorporated the subject of electronic economy (e-economy) in the syllabus in the commercial sciences for classes X, XI and XII (secondary), the minister said.

The designing and technology textbooks will be digitalised, introducing first cycle of primary classes to the world of robotics.

The minister said the IT and communication textbooks for the primary classes and Class VII will also be upgraded as part of efforts to optimise digital culture, IT and communication uses.

The textbooks of the commercial classes will also be modernised to reflect the labour market trends and the 2030 Bahrain Economic Vision. The changes, he pointed out, will help education in the country keep pace with recent global changes in the fields of business management and business entrepreneurship.
