Time To Know Committed to Revitalizing South Korean Public Education

Improved education can only be derived from improved teacher training instruction. Time To Know provides the best and most cost-effective way of achieving this.

Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

Time To Know, a leading provider in digital teaching platforms and integrated classroom solutions, today announced an alliance with KNUE to integrate Time To Know’s powerful content generation and digital teaching platform technology into the university’s teacher training program, which trains and certifies the majority of South Korean primary and secondary teachers.

One of the largest universities in South Korea, KNUE was recently appointed by the South Korean Ministry of Education to take a leading role in revitalizing public schools through the implementation of digital education.

According to Moshe Egert, Time To Know CEO, who hosted a two day visit with Professor Kim and his delegation, “To quote the McKinsey report about why the top-ranking school systems perform so much better than most others, ‘the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers’. Improved education can only be derived from improved teacher training instruction. Time To Know provides the best and most cost-effective way of achieving this.”

According to Professor Kim, “I see a lot of potential in using Time To Know’s innovative digital teaching technology to expand the teacher training program at KNUE, with its advanced pedagogical models, to address the larger issue of revitalizing the teaching methodologies in South Korea’s public schools for the twenty-first century.

The agenda for the delegation included visited a school to see Time To Know’s Digital Teaching Platform in action, demonstrating the next generation Content Generation Studio and Digital Teaching Digital Teaching Platform solutions, and discussing ways about how to working together.

According to Dr. Dovi Weiss, “The potential to make a difference in South Korea’s education system is very promising. It’s fascinating to build a large scale teacher training program, by using Time To Know’s techno-pedagogical solutions, because the first step to changing the educational process is through teacher training. Tomorrow’s teachers will become experts in digital education and will serve as evangelists in their schools. They each will have a powerful effect on the national level.”
