Sara Dara


Programmers Zone

An Augmented Reality App Developer and an author for Augmented Reality books, Sara Dara , started her journey while graduating as a software engineer. My passion is to spread knowledge about technology and this led me to expand my career as an entrepreneur in 2019 by establishing the Programmers Zone in Abu Dhabi. I have taught more than 1000+ students, some of them made their way to developing professional 3D models and apps at a very young age. My hard work earned us the best programming course award in 2020. I am keen to make sure my students get the best of IT programs. I believe that I deserve this award because I have been working hard not to just spread the knowledge of IT among children but also among women. Technology can empower women, they can work remotely. I Have run several workshops and training dedicated to women. We are also working to offer free programs and training in African countries to teach children and adults the programming languages that can help them to move forward and build a brighter future. Programmers Zone Is the first institute in Abu Dhabi that offers PCEP exam certification for Python Language. I conducted a workshop and a presentation at TESOL Arabia 2022 for augmented reality and a presentation about self-awareness and emotional intelligence of students respectively. I will be presenting in ALLT Dubai,2023 at Zayed University about Augmented Reality and TESOL ARABIA 2023 about Innovation in the classroom.

Augmented and Virtual Reality in Classroom

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have become common words while using social media every day in terms of filters. However, when AR comes in combination with education, it enhances interactivity, visualisation of a concept. Earlier, books were the only source of information, then came video tutorials however with AR the concepts can be easily brought into the actual world, which simplifies the learning process. For example, while learning about the digestive system, if we read text from a book and quickly scan it to see what a 3D digestive system looks like with a pop-up text explaining its function, we can see and learn at the same time. Apart from that the ability to add voice in AR apps, helps students hear the information, this can particularly help with special students to learn at their own convenience.
