The Teachers Forum has urged the institutions to nominate and field their students for the innovative programme like the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) that brings together young learners (aged 18 to 25) from diverse backgrounds and disciplines for learning from each other. At an orientation of the programme here at a local hotel, forum coordinator Syed Shamim Azam briefed over a dozen of schools’ representatives for the next Learners’ Voice programme under which over 30 outstanding students and recent graduates from the world over will be selected to join this growing global initiative.
WISE was established by the Qatar Foundation in 2009 and is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative thinking, debate and purposeful action that contributes to building the future of education through innovation. WISE is an on-going initiative and a global reference in new approaches to education. Through both annual summit and a range of continuing programmes, WISE is promoting collaboration and building the future of education. The programme builds their communication, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills in order to ensure that decision-makers hear their views and that they are equipped to take on leading roles in their fields and in the world of education. Nominations and applications are now being accepted online before June 1, 2014.
