She said this is key developing human capabilities in terms of creativity, innovation and in using new technologies.

"The Islamic world is going through a scope of changes that requires us to adapt to these changes through innovation, technologies and dialogue, which would help us uphold the core pillars of our religion," said Al Kaabi, who also chairs the National Commission for Education, Culture and Science.

"We need to focus on human development by integrating new technologies and innovations in the education system."
