Ami Salant, Chief Information Officer of the MOFET Institute writes a comprehensive account of the development of Online Days in Israeli Schools. Since 2001, Israeli schools have been developing and implementing Online Days where students actively participate in group learning activities from their homes instead of participating in regular school classes. The online activities are accessed and submitted via the school website with teachers online, supervising and mentoring the activities. The Online Days are often devoted to a specific theme and involve varied types of learning, often based on inquiry learning. The Online Days provide an opportunity for students to utilize active ICT learning techniques in a concentrated focused time period, while allowing for independent student control of their learning. Students and teachers report greater student motivation and active participation in learning during the Online Days.
