Initiated during the World Economic Forum in 2003, The Jordan Education Initiative (JEI) has emerged as the first model that manifests the true partnership between the public and private sectors on a local and global scale. JEI was launched under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II with the aim of supporting Jordan's efforts in improving the level of education, encouraging creativity, developing capabilities, and building a knowledge economy. The initiative envisions accelerated education reform through innovation and ICT integration to further add value to students, teachers and the educational system. Furthermore, JEI effectively and equitably addresses the key needs of the Jordanian community and helps them respond to new challenges and opportunities created by an increasingly global economy.
By the end of phase one (2003-2007), the JEI has managed to foster and maintain partnerships and launched projects that had strong impact on the modernization process of education in Jordan, and effectively contributed to the development of the local private sector in areas of ICT and Professional Development.
Jordan Education Initiative (JEI), is currently one of Her Majesty's Queen Rania Al Abdullah not-for-profit organizations, was created as a pioneer model for developing education, based on fostering ingenuity, utilizing the power of technology and coupling it with proven modern teaching strategies; in order to transform the school environment into a cradle of discovery and creativity, allowing Jordanian students to imagine and realize a reality they can grow up into.
