Beta School, Israel
Beta School was founded in Petah Tikva in 2015, thanks to a partnership between Microsoft and local and national educational authorities in Israel. Beta School is a teaching laboratory for teachers and students that offers interactive workshops showcasing the use of technologies to support disruptive pedagogy for learning in the twenty-first century. Beta School aims to promote innovation in education. Beta-School bases its pedagogy on disruptive trends in education, with an emphasis on learning by doing in a three-step process: inspire, empower, and create. It uses Microsoft technologies to implement this process, or techno-pedagogical approach, to inspire the desire to learn, to empower learning through research, and finally to create something that embodies newfound knowledge. We believe that as a part of ITELab we would inspire ITE on implementing Beta School's theory and practice of education for today's digital world in the region.
