Parenting: From Tamagotchi to Social Media
In my opinion, parenting in the age of technology and social media requires the same basic moral stance that parenting in the age of TV required – the same as parenting in the age of artificial intelligence will require.

Matriculation Without Exams
In the near future, Israeli students will receive a matriculation certificate without a matriculation test.

Instead of taking matriculation exams, students will perform various tasks throughout the year on the computer, at home and in class with close supervision of their teachers. The final grade will be made up of the grades given to the various assignments and will appear on the matriculation certificate.
