Does your child have trouble studying?
Is there a profession in which he needs reinforcement?

In Ramat Gan they plan to implement a new computer system that will help schools track in real time - and provide students with the assistance they need.
 
At the "Smart Cities" conference that opened in Barcelona, the Ramat Gan Municipality and the YSchool project are presenting projects that combine innovative hi-tech technologies in the municipal education system.
Gamliel announced that Ramat Gan will combine forces in the field of digital education with communities from the Negev and the Galilee in order to create a national model. "Ramat Gan is proud to break not only the borders of the city but also the borders of Israel, and bring the message of advanced, quality and innovative education to the world," said Mayor Israel Singer.
The new technological-management system is supposed to enable the principal and educator to know, at any given moment the situation of the students in the city through various information sections, Its progress towards others, and help to identify who is having trouble, who succeeds, what are the successful curricula, and which programs require improvement.
 
"At any given moment, I can manage information about a student, a class or a school, to know what the children's learning programs are and to find out what they lack, all at the push of a button and immediately," explains Dalia Lin, director of the municipality's education department. "I can learn where additional management inputs are needed - where to invest more, in what areas, and more."
 
As part of the "City of Hochma", the Education Department, in cooperation with yschool, presents an online learning project using technological tools that enable learning in innovative and advanced ways, such as video conferencing, enriched reality and place-based learning. yschool is a technological and social studies project designed to reduce the need for private tutoring and assist students in middle and high school.
