“Learning Near and Far”

“Learning Near and Far” – The program was established to support continuous Math learning from home during the Corona quarantine using the P.I.E Challenge’s personalised learning solutions.

The program was born in April 2020 through an initiative of the Ministry of Education, and in partnership with the Branco Weiss Institute, the Trump Foundation for Education and the 8200 Alumni Association.

A study following the groundbreaking inter-sectoral program showed that 95% of the teachers in the program wanted to continue using these new learning methods and expressed high satisfaction!

Using the personalized learning solutions

Year of Expansion 2019-2020

In the 2019-2020 school year, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the implementation of the personalized learning solutions of the P.I.E Challenge was expanded to hundreds schools throughout the country.

The groups have formed strategic and business partnerships, and have independently raised millions of shekels to continue their activities.


During the year, the Davidson Institute, on behalf of the R&D Division from the Ministry of Education, investigated the expansion of the implementation of solutions in the various sectors, and the findings showed high satisfaction among teachers and students, as well as a desire to continue.


In March 2020, the corona plague started in Isrel, and the P.I.E Challenge groups banded together and offered their personalized learning solutions for free. Within a few days hundreds of teachers and thousands of students signed up and began to assimilate the solutions from home.
