Another superb practical initiative by our friends at World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע!

World ORT added 9 new photos to the album CIM-ORT puts a great IDEA to work — in Mexico City, Mexico.

It’s more than a media lab – it’s IDEA Lab. And, said Karen Bekman and Liora Zyman, it’s Colegio Israelita de México ORT’s (CIM-ORT) answer to the challenge of having to “prepare our students for jobs that do not yet exist, using technologies that have not yet been invented, to solve problems we have yet to encounter”.

The new space, which includes a digital media centre, workshop, library, art gallery and performance space, is the culmination of a 10-year process of examining the school’s needs and assessing the best ways of addressing them, said the Lab’s Director, Anais Perez Gutiérrez.

“We expect Idea Lab to become an international benchmark of education; its students will have the opportunity to handle digital media and access scientific manuals while supervised by highly qualified teachers. Our primary goal is to help students to crystallize their ideas and realise their potential," she told the local Jewish communal newspaper, Enlace Judío.

School Board members Ms Bekman and Ms Zyman told the teachers, parents and students gathered for the inauguration ceremony that to succeed nowadays people needed to combine creativity and the capacity to apply knowledge and manage complicated communication systems.

“It is important to provide our students space and tools to dare to dream, but also to make mistakes and know that they can always try again. Here they can practice perseverance and see their ideas materialize,” they said. “IDEA Lab will be a living organism where students, alumni, teachers, parents and the whole community will be inspired to create and transform, to share information, knowledge, art, wisdom, values and traditions; a place where people from different generations will share a space for creation and exchange of ideas.”
