A word from the network's CEO

The Amal Multidisciplinary Group educational network integrates pedagogical and organizational flexibility with innovative teaching that breaks the boundaries of place, time, and routine learning methods. The Amal network is constantly learning and adapting itself rapidly to changing needs.

With creative, out-of-the-box thinking and expertise in learning integrated with technology, we succeed in reaching all our students, using both distance learning and hybrid learning models.

The network’s Pedagogical and Technological Development Center builds a wide variety of creative solutions for learning both inside and outside the school building.

We invest significant resources in our teachers’ professional development as well as in advanced infrastructure and equipment. But first and foremost, we work to provide a personalized social-emotional solution for our students, to promote their development as ethical individuals with internal resilience.

We rely on an advanced system of innovative pedagogy that provides the foundation for the network’s growth and for long-term development and strengthening of our educational system.

The Amal Multidisciplinary Network trains its students for the basic skills required in today’s world:

– independent functioning, innovative thinking, curiosity, innovation, creativity, independent learning, the ability to solve to real-world challenges, handling uncertainty, flexibility and adaptability, cooperation and teamwork, effective communication: spoken, written, and presentation, collaboration: local and global

The Amal Multidisciplinary Group enables its students to develop problem-solving skills, enabling them to think and explore while addressing complex issues from many fields of study.

We encourage multidisciplinary learning through a variety of pedagogical methods, integrating focus areas in science, engineering and technology, culture, humanities, and arts. In each field, we emphasize innovation and entrepreneurship through partnerships with academic institutions, research institutes, cultural entities, social organizations, and industry.

In this way, we nurture creative and innovative young leadership in Israeli society while emphasizing contribution to community.

Through the Innovation Labs, Amal has significantly increased the number of innovative teachers who create and develop new methods.

At the Labs, Amal teachers have produced a toolbox of educational and technological tools for distance learning. The toolbox includes creative examples, suggestions from Amal’s R&D experts, and an organized database of materials distributed by the Israel Ministry of Education and other relevant educational entities in Israel and abroad.

Life wide Learning

Learning through Life is part of the worldview of Amal Multidisciplinary Group, encouraging students to take part in the living, breathing fabric of real life of environment and community, to contribute and to influence, to go beyond the school walls into the public space and break the boundaries of classroom and time.

To carry out Learning through Life, the student acquires skills of technological-digital literacy, identifying and assessing learning opportunities, independent learning, management and organization of learning, and the metacognitive ability of analyzing learning methods.

Because independent, flexible learning emphasizes development of 21st century skills, it also trains the learner for the challenges of future employment.

One of the ways that Amal assists teachers focusing on identifying and offering Learning through Life opportunities is to provide valuable learning practices and technologies, including through MOOC that Amal developed for public use – an online, independent learning course on learning practices for real life.

This practice, which also includes gaming – has been internationally recognized by UNESCO as one of the best mobile learning practices in the world, see map.
