Dubai: Ninety per cent of the public school teachers are proficient in computer usage while teaching, said an education official.

The School Agency, the first agency of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), confirmed that 90 per cent of teachers and administrative staff in Dubai’s public schools hold the International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL) and are capable of using IT technology while teaching.

Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum IT Education Project, the implementation body for the ICDL training, submitted ICDL training results to the School Agency validating the numbers. The results will bring teachers to the next step, that is, I-Teach certification from the Cambridge British University
