IMDA explores innovative use of emerging technologies to enrich the learning experience and enhance the teaching quality, for the whole education continuum, from early childhood through to adult learning.

We envision that our learners are deeply engaged in learning that is personalised to his/her strengths and preferences, and to address his/her learning gaps and needs. Living in a smart environment will be a way of life for our students where the environment is able to learn about us and adapt to our needs, just as we are able to continually learn about and augment our environment.

We envision that learning through life is to intertwine education and the world of work in ways that strengthen and enrich both, harnessing new technologies that will make learning more agile and relevant to enable adult workers to learn on demand, as well as more immersive and realistic to allow learners to simulate the demonstration of their knowledge in the real world to support skills development.
