TEC Island

By means of OpenSim technology, we have developed our own virtual island dedicated to religious tolerance and understanding. On TEC Island there are Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and Druze houses of prayer; in fact, the first online Druze house of prayer was built here

TEC Island offers a wealth of activities associated with religions and customs, and students can play games together and hold meaningful discussions

Students can sit around the campfire and listen to stories in three languages, and also tell stories of their own. Virtual food can be ordered from the restaurant, and students can shop in the interactive market in three languages, and thus learn basic terms in Hebrew, Arabic, or English. Additionally, they can view an exhibition of the works of students participating in the national TEC4Schools Project

As part of the TEC Program, this year we have developed two new islands

On Welcome TEC Island the children follow a route with twelve stations at which they learn how to move from place to place and how to orient themselves on the island

TEC Town Island is designed for second-year program students. Here the children, Jews and Arabs, design and build their group’s house

Tours of the different parts of TEC Island will be held in the course of the International Day, so if you wish to take part in a tour, please check the timetable
