"We believe the essence of education is not telling people what to think.
The essence of real education is teaching people how to think."

Avi Melamed

HIGH SCHOOL INTERACTIVE EDUCATION BY ITME

People, and particularly young people, extract their information from the internet, particularly social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Telegram, Tik Tok, Twitch, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube, etc.

The combination of buzz words, catchy slogans designed for a Western audience, digestible soundbites, emotional narratives, powerful images, and videos, etc. often results in a partial – and sometimes an even distorted – picture of reality. A reality many do not even think to question and accept as “the truth.”

ITME combats this dangerous phenomenon with an Intelligence Curriculum that instills a questioning mindset – a mindset that, following the program – kicks in almost instinctively.

Through a structured, guided, and engaging process, the ITME Intelligence Curriculum provides universally applicable skills and tools based on Israeli intelligence analysis techniques, to evaluate the reliability of the information.
