Repton Abu Dhabi recently hosted Digital Expo 2022, its Apple Distinguished School (ADS) Annual Digital Summit on March 21st and 22nd 2022. Under the themes Legacy of the UAE, Universe In Motion and World of Opportunities, students across the UAE completed a series of challenges that focused on the discipline of Sustainability.
In the first challenge, participating students were exposed to exciting future technology concepts such as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and created their own creative designs to represent the legacy of the UAE supported by school staff.
Challenge two explored the 3D virtual worlds of the metaverse and the impact it will have on the future of education. Students were tasked with creating a virtual exhibition on traditional and innovative transportation.
Students sharpened their podcasting skills in the third challenge, learning about the processes involved from conception to execution. The creative future leaders designed their own podcast pilots surrounding the theme of Happiness.
Guest judges of the remote summit included Tala Badri, Founder & Executive Director at CMA Dubai; Philippa Wraithmell, Author The Digital Ecosystem; and Reema Al Abbas, Senior Manager at In5.
