Abu Dhabi: Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, has launched the Childhood Insights Lab in Abu Dhabi in the presence of Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority.
The pioneering new lab presents vital insights based on childhood data to enable decision-makers and stakeholders to develop policies that promote early childhood learning while enhancing the quality of services.
Following the launch, the leaders reviewed the lab’s plans and initiatives, which use data-driven storytelling methods – a multidisciplinary process that transforms complex childhood data trends into engaging visual narratives.
The lab, developed by the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority, collects and analyses cross-sectoral data from 11 Abu Dhabi Government entities on the challenges faced in early childhood. The derived data trends are then developed into animated content based on real-life scenarios, to be presented to decision-makers and stakeholders in the early years sector.
Data-driven storytelling is gaining popularity among business leaders and decision makers around the world, where it is helping to connect the dots between sophisticated and often complex data analyses to drive targeted action in key focus areas.
Thei team were accompanied by Saif Saeed Ghobash, Secretary-General of the Executive Council; and Sana Mohamad Suhail, Director-General of the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority.
