Technology and Innovation

tech7

In today’s educational landscape, the role and purpose of technology has dramatically shifted toward a fully integrated and seamless presence.  Technology devices have become essential in learning and instruction:

  • Increased access to information
  • Ability to collaborate, create, and connect beyond the walls of the classroom
  • Opportunity for differentiation and personalization of education
  • Opportunities for teaching executive functioning strategies using technology

Classroom technology is part of our reality, and at Netivot, we have an obligation to embrace it and continue to explore the potential benefits it brings to teaching and learning. Today’s students are encouraged to develop skills of creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking, often called “4 Cs” –  skills that will open up doors of opportunity and hopefully lead our students to achieve their aspirations as self-motivated, lifelong learners. By providing our students with learning opportunities that develop and extend these skills, our goal is that they continue to learn, thrive and succeed, while at the same time maintain our core values of Torah, Israel and Derech Eretz.

Kol Hakavod and congratulations to the hard-working teachers and student representatives from classes at both the North and South campus upon the success of our 5th Annual Technology Showcase! Teachers and students masterfully demonstrated how various mobile devices, applications, extensions and tools are used to enhance and transform the learning experiences in Netivot’s classrooms.

From app smashing, robotics, coding club, iTalam, assistive technology tools, animation apps and virtual reality attendees were engaged and inspired by all the hands-on and interactive demos. It is truly amazing to see how much the educational technology program at Netivot has grown and evolved!  This evening would not have been possible without the hard work of our teachers who continue to seek ways to innovate their teaching and create diverse learning experiences for our students. A very special shout out to our Director of IT, Padmaja Bharath and our Director of Educational Technology, Orly Rachamim, for teaching our students how to incorporate 21st technology skills into their everyday learning. You are our #techteam extraordinaire! We are so very #NetivotProud!

A very special thank you to Ms. Orly Rachamim for coaching and working with the teams over the last several months to prepare them for this special event.

Thank you to Ms. Gaby Goldenberg for supporting the teams throughout the day!

We are very #NetivotProud of our team’s amazing accomplishments!

Our Grade 8 Robotics teams participated in the Jewish Day School Inaugural Robotics competition held at Tanenabum CHAT in March.

Competing against 15 other teams, our students worked hard to design and program a Lego Mindstorm Robot to complete a series of unseen timed challenges using colour, touch, gyro and ultrasonic sensors. Students spent the day collaborating on building a creative model, tinkering with their design, and testing a variety of code to accomplish the challenges set out before them.

Yasher Koach to our girls team, THE ROBOT8’s, for placing second in the entire competition and to our boys’ team, THE NETIBOTS, for winning the most creative program award!
