The UAE Ministry of Education (MoE) has partnered with Alef Education, a UAE-based EdTech company, to develop an AI tutor to support maths education, it has been announced. 

The MoU will see the MoE support Alef Education in developing and integrating the ‘Alef AI Tutor’ into the Alef Platform, a tool designed to elevate mathematics learning outcomes for students from kindergarten to grade eight.

The AI Tutor uses AI algorithms to:

  • Provide personalised support and guidance to students, 
  • Address individual learning needs, and 
  • Facilitate effective problem-solving. 

The ‘Alef AI Tutor’ has also been designed to align with the UAE’s curriculum, and offers multilingual support and curriculum-based instruction.

It was shared that this model encourages students to learn at their own pace.

Commenting on this partnership, His Excellency Dr. Mohammad Al Mualla, Undersecretary of MoE for Academic Affairs, said: “At the Ministry of Education, we continue to spearhead the integration of cutting-edge technologies to further elevate the education system and ensure its alignment with future demands.”

Adding: “Our partnership with Alef Education is a testament to our unwavering commitment to encouraging the growth of the UAE’s EdTech industry, ensuring a seamless and enhanced learning experience for both students and educators.”

Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education said: “We are delighted to continue partnering with the Ministry of Education to integrate innovative AI-driven technology into the UAE’s education system. This strategic collaboration reaffirms our commitment to providing innovative solutions that enhance the learning process for students and educators alike. We are confident that the Alef AI Tutor will significantly improve learning outcomes in mathematics and prepare students for a technology-driven future.”

Alongside working to ensure Alef AI Tutor’s alignment with the UAE’s national curriculum, through the partnership, the two parties will also collaborate for advanced research to improve the AI Tutor’s impact on students’ learning experiences. 

Alef Education will also conduct training sessions for educators and students to ensure effective adoption, and offer technical support to schools during the pilot phase.
