ItemEmpowering Palestinian girls through digital learning innovations in STEM fields(2021-10) Osama MimiIn 2016, Birzeit University began to implement the Experiential Learning Objects (xLOBs) model, partnering with the Palestinian Ministry of Education. The report traces development and successful capacity building for xLOBs, which was undermined by Jordanian educational minister, Marwan Awartani in 2019. With COVID-19, the urgent need for online learning prompted an independent learning scheme based on the xLOBs model, and this was further developed outside of the formal ministry. The report highlights how innovation alone is not sufficient to transform education in autocratic dictatorship systems. The project verified that xLOBs achieved their learning outcome goals for students, with significant impact on teacher practices.
