Bild047Free Netbooks to Every Teacher, is a special program to empower teachers in Israel to unleash the power of mobile knowledge. Athena Funds and the Israeli Teachers organization are currently distributing netbooks to teachers in elementary schools and giving guided lessons of 120 hours which include basic knowledge of operating the computers and also supporting teachers in digital skills issues. This program, initiated by the Israeli ministry of education aims at combining computers in class with frontal learning, using accessible knowledge on the net and more.

Surveys checking the satisfaction of the teachers taking part in this project show that there is a significant increase in student’s focused attention due to the theoretically infinite and dynamic access to knowledge in class.
