ASSET is All Set to Help the Brightest Students Across the World

Recently, an academic programme has been launched in Dubai. It is famously being called as Dubai's Most Gifted Programme. It is an invitation for the brightest students from all over the world. ASSET was established in 2001. Educational Initiatives (EI) is an educational products company that leverages the twin levers of cutting-edge research and technology-based solutions. ASSET, EI's flagship product, has been the go-to benchmarking assessment for over 1000 schools across UAE, Singapore, India and has been used as a mirror to give actionable feedback on the teaching-learning process. 

ATS and Dubai's Most Gifted Programme are offshoots from our years of experience in conducting ASSET and reporting in-depth insights into students' potential and learning needs. The programme is being organized by the ASSET team from December 16, 2018 to January 3, 2019 at the GEMS Modern Academy. The programme aims at benefitting the brightest students from across the globe by providing them with learning opportunities industry experts from across the globe. The students have been shortlisted through the ASSET Talent Search (ATS) test from grades 6 to 9. The students who perform exceptionally well in this test are shortlisted and welcomed to Dubai for attending the programme.  This is a wonderful opportunity for talented students to learn, grow and at the same time interact and relate with other like minded young children from across the globe. This shall indeed expose them to new and innovative ideas. Nargish Khambatta, Principal, GEMS Modern Academy stated that they had requested for the organization of this initiative as it would be very helpful for the students to develop leadership skills and learn advance problem solving techniques. Some of the modules that are being covered are as follows: Argument-Driven Science Learning, Leaders of Their Own Learning, Be a Maker of the Internet of Things. Indeed this programme shall prove to be of immense importance to the education sector. More such initiatives should be organized at the national and international level both.
