Innoventures Education’s Raffles Nurseries and Raffles Starters have launched a fun and engaging innovative initiative for young leaners – Bug Bytes, to provide high-quality technology teaching. Using a specially-designed age appropriate bus for the early years, children between three to four years will have access to a world of new experiences that will make them curious learners.

Ms. Hind Al Mualla, Chief of Creativity, Happiness and Innovation at Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA); Ms. Mouza Al Suwaidi, Chief of Engagement at KHDA; and Ms. Lina Jalouqa, Public Partnerships Manager for UNICEF, were present at the launch of the programme along with Poonam Bhojani, CEO of Innoventures Education.

The Bug Bytes bus will visit various Raffles nurseries and schools across Dubai and will provide purposeful, high-quality preschool learning experiences. The customised air-conditioned bus is, equipped with HP tablets, robotic kits, a state-of-the-art interior that includes LCD screens, HP 3D scanner and a printer. The bus will provide a mobile classroom to be shared across all Raffles nurseries and Raffles Starters. This initiative is part of the ‘World on Wheels’ project which aims to bring mobile technology across Innoventures Education’s schools.

The Bug Bytes Bus blended curriculum is designed to provide children with the opportunity to use a range of educational software and enjoy a wide variety of innovative activities that encourages confidence and develops concentration.

Poonam Bhojani, CEO Innoventures Education, said: “Innoventures Education schools and nurseries believe in using technology as a tool to accelerate the learning process and continue to build networked learning environments where students explore their own ideas, develop skills and build confidence in them through the use of technology, in a fun, child-friendly way.”
