Individual Instruction, Computers Are The Norm In Yavne Schools

By MARILYN GRANT

The room is bright, with every
inch of the wall covered with
children's artwork and posters about
religious and secular holidays in
Israel.
The pupils in this second grade
classroom in the Neot Shazar
neighborhood's Etzion elementary
school all seem to be doing their
own thing. Sitting or standing in
small groups, they are working on
math, painting pictures or reading.
A few, with great concentration, are
studying with Sara, their teacher.
This is an average classroom
picture, which we can find
duplicated in all of the elementary
schools in Yavne. They operate on
the principle of individualized
instruction — a new method of
education being used throughout
Israel — which got its start in Yavne
almost 10 years ago.
The system, developed by the
Rothschild Foundation's Center for
Educational Technology, is under
the supervision of the University of
Tel Aviv. It employs a combination of
intensive teacher training and
retraining, providing elementary
schools with the latest equipment
and computers.
When students enter the
classroom in the morning, they
check the list of tasks which have to
be done that day. There is also a
choice of electives, depending on
the time available.
Children can complete
assignments in any order they want,

working individually or selecting the
partner or group they wish to study
with. The teacher is always
available to explain and help.
In the after-school "huggim"
(clubs), children who are interested
can learn programming. There is
also a late afternoon agenda where
children, including pre-schoolers,
can work on the computers together
with their parents.
