Mohamed El Kalla, CEO, Cairo for Investment and Real Estate Development (CIRA)

Changes in the methods and goals of Egyptian education are creating a generation of new growth potentials

22 July 2019

In this Global Platform video Mohamed El Kalla, CEO of Cairo for Investment and Real Estate Development, talks about shifts in the structure of schooling in Egypt and around the world. These changes are drawing investor interest, particularly in research and development in innovative pedagogical technologies, and challenging instructors to adapt to new roles as facilitators. Students are joining the workforce equipped with new skills for social collaboration and knowledge production, and the deployment of these skills is expected to power the decentralised growth of Egypt’s middle class in the years to come.

Transcript:

What's happening around Egypt? There is a lot of initiative to modernise education, to introduce tech to be able to deal with growing numbers, to understand that normative education per se is changing worldwide. The fact is that this change is the solution of Egypt's problem in terms of growth going forward.

Educating the Egyptian middle class: that's what's going to move the economy forward.

When we talk about the Egyptian middle class, we're talking about millions, a huge market with a lot of potential, and it's going to support the government to really focus its resources on the ones in need.
