We chose to develop a digital platform for learning to equip our students with the necessary skills-set needed (not just to survive but) to thrive in the Digital Age.
Yes, our model is continuously upgraded to provide the most refined resources for our students. For example: the NIS videos that are filmed by our staff on campus to allow students to revisit content as it was taught in class.
We've also implemented the Flipped Classroom methodology to help our students polish their preparation skills.
One of our biggest challenges was the magnitude of the whole project. This was a lot of work. We were able to overcome it by holding several meetings and workshops whereby we gained our staff's will to see this project happen.
I'd strongly advise that they research the life out of it, and then teach it to the entire staff body. Create excitement about it! Then, no matter how much work it takes, stay committed. We have generated comparative data that unanimously indicates that blending works. Not only that, but the improvements in students who were "at risk" or "below average" are the ones that yielded an impressive positive outcome as a result of our application of blended methodologies.
As the school's academic dean, a part of my required tasks is to develop processes of implementation and supervise them. In this way, I am heavily proficient in organization and policy writing.
As an instructional supervisor, I am also able to convince other people with an idea and required process by teaching them about it.
Advanced Education's proud history began with the vision and endeavors of one woman. After decades of working in the field of Education, Dr. Nermien Ismail traveled the world to research best-practice schools.
1999 marked the inaugural launching of the Advanced Education National School in Nasr City, Cairo, with 1650 students, 450 staff members, and 55 classrooms. The following year 100 students matriculated as the first graduates of Advanced Education.
To enhance the educational experience, 120 staff members began an intensified training program paralleling the CEO vision to further boost teaching skills in the classroom. In 2003, Advanced Education was recognized by the Egyptian Ministry of Education and awarded the Shield of Excellence.
Advanced Education was rapidly growing and evolving to meet the demands of the overall Egyptian community. In 2004, the National School expanded its grounds to a new campus in the First Settlement, Cairo. With it, Advanced Education offered two other systems of education: the American, and the French. In the following year, 2005.
After acquiring the ISO 9001:2008 International Standard in May of 2013, Advanced Education continues to flourish as a leader of International Education in Egypt. Today, we celebrate our diverse community and empower our pedagogical foci by partnering with other best-practice schools worldwide through our Global Citizenship Program.
