The society in which we live today encourages thinking outside the box and deals extensively with creativity as a way of life. Creativity is one of the most desirable assets in our society, one that is also seen as crucial to our personal success in the world of work, our social existence, and our future.
Through the creative process, innovation is brought into the world. It brings into awareness that which was previously hidden and leads the way to new life. The Amal Entrepreneurship programs developed out of a deep understanding that students are a pool of human talent and the future technological, scientific and cultural leaders of the State of Israel. It is our duty as educators to nurture excellence among those with the highest abilities.
In this course, you will learn the principles of Education for Entrepreneurship programs developed in The Amal Educational Network .
We have developed unique models, which enable teachers to achieve their dreams with students and to experience learning in a real world setting through collaboration with high-tech companies, innovative leaders and academic institutions. We encourage our students to observe and look for real-life challenges in their community and to develop innovations that improve the lives of people and society as a whole.
During the course you will learn about the models and acquire practical tools and ideas on how to develop and implement such programs in your school.
