Lughati, the Sharjah-based initiative dedicated to supporting Arabic learning the smart way, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Sharjah.
The MoU aims to conduct a research study to measure Lughati's impact on children and students who have been involved with the initiative throughout its first and second phases.
The MoU, at the University of Sharjah, was signed by Badria Al Ali, Manager of the Lughati initiative and Prof. Maamar Bettayeb, Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Studies at the University of Sharjah. The signing ceremony was held in the presence of representatives from both organisations.
Under the terms of the MoU, the Research and Graduate Studies Department at the University of Sharjah will conduct a study on the impact of Lughati initiative on the learning process of Sharjah's kindergarten and primary school students who were given smart tablet devices by the initiative.
On the other hand, Lughati will provide the University of Sharjah's research team with data and samples taken from 100 teachers and 50 students. The study will aim to evaluate the initiative and measure its level of success in achieving its objectives and goals that seek to support the national Arabic curriculum and encourage students to use Arabic using modern scientific methods.
