The India Today Online Magazine conducted a comprehensive review of school entrepreneurship learning platforms, noting the Israeli Entrepreneurship for Kids (EFK) Program as one of the top platforms worldwide.
Galit Zamler, who founded Vickathon for leading experiential virtual hackathon, is one of 12 Israeli women who are tech ambassadors, part of 100,000 women worldwide.
The Facebook group, Technological Innovation in Education, published Galit Zamler's point of view. Galit claims that "only a school staff that adopts a culture of entrepreneurship, will make the school relevant."
It should be noted that most of the respondents to the publication agreed with what she said.
Below is the content:
"That's Galit Zamler's opinion. Do you agree?
'When the school staff is familiar with the entrepreneurial arena and adopts the language, culture, and skills, that it offers in the classroom and in everyday life, it inevitably makes the school one that is relevant for the students and provides a learning experience that prepares them for tomorrow's world.
The entrepreneurial process includes many aspects of openness, brainstorming, teamwork, asking questions, researching, analyzing information, drawing conclusions, receiving feedback, standing in front of an audience, curiosity, communication skills, dealing with new things, experience, failure, success, etc.'
When assimilating a culture and skills of entrepreneurship, learning is done out of interest, doing, and an ongoing development process of both teachers and students.
Therefore, a school that wants to adopt a culture of entrepreneurship cannot be satisfied with an external facilitator that will run with the students an entrepreneurship course. A course like this could be very interesting and enriching, but its impact is limited.
To be relevant to students and prepare them for the real world outside the school walls, one must go through a deep and continuous exposure to the world of entrepreneurship, understand it, and conduct conducted according to it. This process should start first with staff preparation'.

"The entrepreneurship course, according to Galit Zamler, the developer of entrepreneurial program for schools, helped the children to explore the subject in depth. During the first meetings, they discussed issues such as why in general, they should engage in entrepreneurship?, What is the advantage they gain by developing initiatives?, And what is the contribution of entrepreneurship to their lives?.
They reviewed and examined existing projects. They defined potential entrepreneurs' characteristics, and expanded their perspective to the entrepreneur's immediate surroundings. They also examined feedbacks of the closest people and defined what is a supportive environment."
"In order to define who is an entrepreneur, the students learned about success stories of entrepreneurs. The students met with young entrepreneurs, some of whom were successful and some who had failed.
They wanted to learn from their experience. Later they learned about the importance of defining a vision, they formulated the principles of successful entrepreneurship, and discussed the needed resources. The young students were not deterred from the less pleasant aspects like common mistakes of entrepreneurs, as well as review and analysis of failed ventures.
All this followed the discussion of why you should learn from the experience of others. Guest entrepreneurs were also invited to the course."

The organization believes that the mediadoes not provide a sufficient platform for social actions, and therefore Great People Everywhere sought to allow exposure to the public.
