In January 2018, we launched the P.I.E Challenge in an event that was held at the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Stock Exchange.
The event was attended by Nir Lampert, Chairman of the 8200 Alumni Association,
Eli Horowitz, CEO of the Trump Foundation for Education,
as well as other friends and partners.
An evening that was held at the Microsoft compound in Herzliya Pituach, in which we met the “P.I.E Challenge” participants, board members, mentors, support bodies, and accompanying experts. The selected groups presented the personalized solutions that were developed, and it was clear how much thought, creativity and seriousness were invested. We would like to thank each and every one who took part in this evening and to our dear partners in implanting the personalization in education revolution in Israel!
The third meeting of the Personalization in Education series in collaboration with Wize !, held at Madison Square Garden, Herzliya.
We heard a fascinating lecture on motivation and human behavior from the one and only, the man and the legend, Professor Dan Arieli,
a board member of the P.I.E Challenge, a faculty member at Duke University and a leading expert in the field of psychology and behavioral economics.
A significant week of work at the Google Launchpad, where all groups were closely accompanied by mentors, consulting, design, UX / UI, marketing tools, branding, programming, strategic plan and more. All with the aim of promoting the personalized learning solutions before entering the schools.
The workshop was about “Getting to Know the Customer” and was held by good and inspiring people who helped the groups deepen their familiarity with their main client – the teacher. We met with Niv and Eddie Fishman (5 unit math teachers at the Lady Davis School) who shared the experience of technological pilots in the classroom. We also met Avishay Friedler (Israel Digital and Mentor in Challenge) who shared insights about “do and don’ts” about building a pilot. At the end, we met Yuval Brenner, CEO of Crambola, who reminded the groups intensively and determinedly about the importance of “authentic” listening to the customer. In addition, our dear partners from “Shibolet” joined the event to support the groups in legal and financial matters.
In October 2018, we held a record event in which the pioneering teachers, that are taking a lead part in the pilot programs, who came from all over the country, gathered together with the Ministry of Education, supporting bodies, board members, mentors and start-ups. We would like to thank to all those who came to the event, and especially to our teachers, representatives in the field, who are working to promote the personalization revolution in Israel. You are the heart of the P.I.E Challenge!
