To speed up the digital upgrade of the education industry, The Huawei Global Intelligent Education Summit 2021 — themed Accelerate the Digital Journey of Education: New Value Together — has officially commenced online. During the event, Huawei proposed the principle as "3/3/9", which will be the foundation of the all-scenario education solution.
Working closely with stakeholders and partners, Huawei aims to create new shared value by enabling innovative teaching methodologies, inclusive educational resources, improved research capabilities, and optimized management approaches.
The “3/3/9” principle targets "three" key customer groups: basic education, higher education, and National Research and Education Network (NREN). It focuses on "three" major scenarios: smart classroom, smart campus, and research innovation. And finally, the solution offers "nine" customizable solutions: hybrid learning, collaborative classroom, digital classroom, intelligent collaboration, safe campus, school connectivity, smart campus network, NREN, and HPC. Together, "3/3/9" accelerate the digital upgrade of the education industry.
Commenting on the announcement, Thomas Xu, president of the global government sales of Huawei Enterprise BG said, “In the future, teaching, management, and research will become fully aware, fully connected, and fully intelligent. Joined by ecosystem partners in the education industry, Huawei will help our customers transform faster towards all-scenario intelligent education.”
Huawei is actively working on cultivating qualified talent in the field of higher education. It is creating customized solutions that will go beyond traditional classrooms, spur on innovative teaching methods, improve research and innovation efficiency, and upgrade management. For vocational education, Huawei promotes the integration of education with hands-on industry practice by encouraging students' practical learning that will prepare them for the markets' demand for job-ready talent.
Meanwhile, Fahem Al Nuaimi, CEO, Ankabut, said, “Huawei technologies has enabled us to deliver a great variety of quality cloud services to our partners across the UAE — which has boosted efficiency, reduced costs, and facilitated collaboration across the education industry.”
At the summit, Huawei reiterated its three strategic initiatives aimed at helping the education industry create digital education institutions that are part of a solid ecosystem. These are: (1) Gain in-depth insights into industry scenarios, explore industrial digitalization, and share educational resources to achieve inclusive and quality education. (2) Striving for mutual benefit, Huawei integrates the technical advantages of solutions and diversified incentive resources to enable partners in the education industry to reduce costs and increase efficiency, creating more possibilities for cooperation. (3) Work together with partners to build a foundation for ICT talent, and create a new industry-university-research ecosystem.
Prof. Zhao Jianhua, senior expert at the International Centre for Higher Education Innovation under the Auspices of UNESCO (UNESCO-ICHEI), said, “Designing and organizing training based on capacity building can effectively help partner universities solve the problem of insufficient ICT application capabilities of teachers.”
Frank Huang, director of the global education and healthcare industry of Huawei Enterprise BG, introduced Huawei's all-scenario education solution, said: "By building an intelligent education platform, Huawei's Intelligent Education Solution aims to meet the requirements of various campus service scenarios, support a variety of teaching applications, and integrate intelligence in all aspects of teaching, learning, management, and research."
So far, Huawei has set up 1500 Huawei ICT academies worldwide. More than 3000 teachers have been certified as lecturers, and over 60,000 students are trained each year. Huawei has more than 60 partners in the education industry and has established OpenLabs in multiple countries to incubate joint solutions developed by Huawei and ISVs.
