VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) Coming to Israel in a Tel Aviv Pilot Program
The VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) method has finally arrived in Israel and is implemented as a pilot program in the HaYovel and Giboray Israel elementary schools. The system, which has been operated in the world since 1991, uses art as a tool to develop innovative and creative thinking in a wide array of subjects including writing, mathematics, social sciences and science.
The method has been tested over the past decade through research and practice in schools and museums around the world, and has been proven to construct critical thinking skills. The method is also applied among medical students and members of intelligence agencies, in order to strengthen their visual thinking and  sharpen their diagnostic skills.
The pilot program is operating as a collaborative project between the municipality, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Art of Visual Thinking Association, and will include adaptations to Israeli art works. The pilot program includes training and guidance of the school staff, who could then implement and teach the method.
The studies are based on guided, non-judgmental discussion about works of art, while making in-depth observations and providing a forum in which every student can express his/ her own opinions.

  2. Encourage the students to observe their world through a critical and exploring perspective
  3. Provide the students with an experience of group and personal museum work

In addition to academic assistance, the daytime boarding schools offer social activities as part of enrichment classes that expose the students to cultural contents that expand the students’ horizons. 

 

Consistency and Change

According to the educational perception that stands at the base of the consistency and individual management policy, most problems that cause parents to consider relocating their children to a different educational institution are solvable and treatable.

 

In most cases, moving children from one educational facility to another does not solve the core issue, which the children then continue to carry with them at their new school. Therefore, in every one of the city’s elementary schools there is an educational-psychological array with the help of which children can handle the difficulties and problems they may come across.
This array includes a principle, homeroom teacher, psychologist and social worker.

 

School Change Committee
Parents who wish to move their children to an alternative educational facility (for any given reason), are welcome to contact Mrs. Tirtza Penig, the Individual Management Director, with all of the relevant documents:

  1. Updated school diplomas

Social Education

 Studies show that social engagement and involvement helps students in the forming of values such as: personal and mutual responsibility, taking initiative and giving. It contributes to reducing risky behaviors, increases motivation to improve academic and social achievements and sense of independence and encourages the development of mental strength. 
It has also been found that adolescents who had been educated to be socially involved continued to be socially involved and volunteer as adults and their attitude towards the elderly and their community was sensitive and considerate.

 

In the past school year, the Education Administration has launched a process of deepening and strengthening the subject of volunteering among the city’s high school students. As part of this process, a new Social Leadership Group has been established, among whose members are 12 representatives from every municipal high school. The members of the Social Leadership Group undergo a workshop that deals in work group, responsibility, giving, social involvement and more. Groups that complete the workshop return to their respective schools, where they establish, devise and lead a community project for one of the school’s age groups.

 

The goals of the Social Education Project:

  1. Raising the percentage of high school students who volunteer in their community via the encouragement of the schools and educational staff: monthly training for the schools social coordinators, private workshops for grades 7-9, personal guidance for homeroom teachers and educational staff by the municipality and the Ministry of Education.
  2. Implementing social involvement from theory to practise: every student in classes 7-9 will take part in four to five volunteering activities throughout the school year.
  3. Developing a dialogue to support volunteering students: Education lessons will focus on the subject of giving and social involvement. The dialogue will also deal in the more challenging experiences the students go through during their volunteering activities.
  4. Creating a database of volunteering placements in order to enable the integration of each student in a volunteering project suitable to his/her abilities, talents and interests.

The seminar attracts participants such as: representatives from the city’s different high schools, youth movements, the municipality and the Ministry of Education, all of whom share the sense of responsibility and social sensitivity. The unique seminar has led to a common faith and hope that initiating and promoting actions against racism and for tolerance should be continued at any cost.
