Digital World: Smart classrooms make kids smarter

World ORT president aims to create in Israel ‘one of world’s most technologically advanced educational systems’.

Here’s a real estate tip, courtesy of a man who’s been around – Dr. Jean de Gunzburg, president of World ORT: If you’re looking for a home in a community with a good school system, pick “the periphery”, up north or down south. Not only are the homes there cheaper – your kids will get a better education, thanks to World ORT’s Smart Classroom program.
“Nowadays, I think that many of the schools in the Negev and the Galilee are more advanced than they are in the center of the country”, says Dr. de Gunzberg….

(ORT was founded in Tsarist Russia in 1880. The name ORT was coined from the acronym of the Russian words Obshestvo Remeslenofo zemledelcheskofo Truda, meaning The Society for Trades and Agricultural Labour. Homepage: http://www.ort.org/ )
