World ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation.

Started in 1880, World ORT is today operational in 37 countries and helps around 300 000 students around the world. Specialised in technology, our mission is to provide communities wherever they are, with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment.

What is Education?

Education helps people realize their dreams, become who they want to be. Education empowers poorer communities, giving them the opportunity to grow and become self-sufficient. It’s also about sharing and connecting, to learn from each other.

Our Digital Skills Academy students learned the ins and outs of television journalism from one of Bulgaria’s most popular practitioners yesterday - Anton Hekimyan, anchor of bTV’s top-rated This Morning show.

Augmented reality, interactive tools for presenting information, synergy with social media, user-generated content and quality journalism, online streaming and 360-degree views were just some of the technological innovations that bTV showed the teenagers.

It was another highlight for our 26 students who have come together in Sofia from seven countries to learn advanced digital media skills.

Aner Ben Baruch, from Israel, is in the Communication and Film track at school and wants to be a director or camera operator. He’s loving the Academy’s video production course.

“I’ll be more advanced that the rest of my class when I finish here,” Aner said. “Next year we have to produce a 15-minute video. My experience here will give me a lot of tools and techniques that I can teach my teammates – we can become the best group in the class and make the best film.”

Yael Szwigman, a student at the latest school to join the World ORT network, Estrella Toledano in Madrid, says she’s learning a lot, too. “There’s a lot of new stuff for me in this video production course,” she said. “It’s incredible.”

Based at the Lauder-ORT #134 "Dimcho Debelianov” Jewish School in Sofia, the World ORT Digital Skills Academy offers a packed schedule of workshops, lectures, tours and practical experience for 26 students from Bulgaria, Israel, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Spain and Ukraine.

Thinking outside the box
A tour of the pioneering Kanal 3 television studios in Sofia and an inspirational meeting with one of Bulgaria’s top dubbing professionals were highlights of the World ORT Digital Skills Academy’s second day. “One of the objectives of the Academy is to open the students’ eyes to possible careers in the media that they may not have thought of before or been unaware of. Hristo Bonin, who specialises in dubbing for the Bulgarian market, was fascinating and really motivated the students to think outside the box,” said Daniel Tysman, Head of World ORT’s Education Department.

Congratulations to ORT Argentina student Eitan Sprejer on winning an honourable mention at the 49th International Chemistry olympiad in Thailand!
Eitan, who impressed World ORT STEM Communication Award judges last year with a video giving a refreshing perspective on Albert Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity, was a member of the four-strong Argentinean team at the IChO.
The IChO brought together the world’s most talented chemistry students at the secondary school level from 76 countries and tested them with a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination.
Eitan was shortlisted for the Argentinean team after winning gold at last year's National Chemistry Olympiad (OAQ). Since then, he’s been undergoing training at the Universidad de Buenos Aires with coach Sergio Slaifstein.
