The Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Learning Program (MBRSLP) is set to hold a series of workshops to help cultural organisations to use digital technology to engage with students and the education system.

The workshop series is intended to demonstrate how digital education technologies can help cultural organisations to extend their reach and interaction with educational establishments and the wider public, to improve learning experience and engagement.

The program will be held in collaboration with Sharjah Museum Department, Dubai Culture and Emirates Festival of Literature in coordination with Ministry of Education and Sharjah Education Council.

"Our workshops will enable local cultural organisations to learn valuable lessons from international organisations and experts when it comes to engaging with students and visitors in the digital space. They will offer insights, opportunities and ideas, specific to our regional and local context and institutions. We see students and the new generation as the future leaders of this world and understand the need of increasing and enhancing the interactions between cultural institutions and the education system, to further enhance the learning experience," said HE Mohammed Gheyath, director general of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Smart Learning Program. "These partnerships came together through a shared belief in the potential for mutually beneficial collaboration between the Program and cultural institutions in the UAE."

MBRSLP will host a digital engagement workshop for various cultural organisations in the UAE. International experts will share best practices in creation of high quality educational content, as well as help UAE cultural organisations get a better understanding of their context, priorities and aspirations. The workshop will focus on how technology is used to increase public and educational engagement, while using concrete examples of digital engagement with schools and lessons learned from participating institutions.

Additionally, an organisational workshop has been organised for Sharjah Museum Department, to explore opportunities for digital engagement in the specific contexts of the institutions, providing strategic approaches for digital engagement with public schools. Based on concrete examples, the workshops will offer insights on how to add value to visitors' experience during and beyond visits. The aim of the workshops will be to explore opportunities and partnership in digital curation and communication with the Program.
