We continue to raise funds and cooperate in creating educational materials with the aim of bringing ImagineBox to every school in the country
School teachers in Rosh Ha'Ayin joined Athena Fund's "Digital Toolbox for Every Teacher" program.
To date, Athena Fund has distributed laptop computers, tablets and iPads along with professional training courses to over 30,500 school and kindergarten teachers in 3,026 schools and kindergartens in 179 Israeli municipalities.
The program in Rosh Ha'Ayin was made possible thanks to donations from Athena Fund and our partners – the Professional Advancement Fund of the Teachers' Union, the Ministry of Education, and the Rosh Ha'Ayin municipality.
Providing teachers with a personal laptop computer and professional training gives them the basic yet vital work tools and knowledge that educators of our children deserve. It is a great privilege for us to be part of strengthening and bettering the status of teachers in Israel.
It is also the first step in progressing towards the classroom of the future, where educators take on a dynamic mentoring role. These teachers provide support for students in acquiring 21st century skills, including independent learning, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship, creativity and more.
ImagineBox Pavilion at 2023 Ashmoret Education Conference
We presented our ImagineBox immersive classroom at a pavilion we set up at the annual Ashmoret education conference in Tel Aviv.
Hundreds of school principals and vice-principals, mayors and municipal representatives, as well as people from the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Union visited and experienced our ImagineBox immersive classroom.
The visitors enjoyed a hands-on experience of the ImagineBox and heard about our vision for the future of education.
The demand for our ImagineBox classrooms is high, and we're thrilled about the excitement among educators and their thirst for tools that make learning more effective and relevant.
We continue to raise funds and cooperate in creating educational materials with the aim of bringing ImagineBox to every school in the country.
