Dubai school principals said remote learning strategies remain at the forefront of delivery modes for the rest of this year, as some parents are still reluctant to send their wards to schools for on-site learning.

The distance learning model will be available especially to those students who are immunocompromised or stuck in their home countries.

However, they reiterated that despite a rushed move to virtual learning last year due to the pandemic, schools have now settled into more nuanced distance learning modes.

Many schools noted that while the majority of students have expressed their desire to come back to school physically after the summer holidays, virtual and remote learning are already deeply integrated into their operations.

Sangita Chima, Principal at Amity School Dubai, said, “Ninety-five per cent of our students have confirmed that they will be returning to school in September. Our community is planning for a fresh and resilient reopening after the summer break. However, we continue to invest in EdTech to encourage blended and dual delivery."

Institutions are also keen to ensure the confidence of parents in sending their wards to school in a safe environment. They have, therefore, included a distance learning option in their reopening plan that now awaits approval from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
