The book launch of Raising the Next Generation of Innovators was held over the weekend in two exciting events co-held by IsCham in Beijing and Shanghai.
The CEO of LeapLearner and the co-author of the book, Mr. Ami Dror, shared selected secrets to innovation in education.
Ami believes that a very special aspect of Jewish education is to encourage children’s “questioning” spirit. Compared with the mode of “Assigning Task – Completing Task – Praising” in Chinese education, Jewish parents often tend to put more emphasis on cultivating the ability to think independently and be more “chutzpah”. That, often, becomes the source of inspiration for children’s innovation.
Additional participants in the event included co-author Dr. Huang Zhaodan, CEO of Uni Ed, Roni Abramson of the Israeli Embassy in Beijing, Ariel Braverman, Deputy Consul General at the Israeli Consulate in Shanghai, and Dr. Harvey Dzodin, columnist in China Daily.
