The new technological platform AURA, presented by Israeli companies Contentnet Education and Radix Technologies at the Bett 2013 technology in education show in London from Jan. 30 to Feb. 2, offers an advanced educational interface that streamlines and enhances the learning process.

Designed to run on Android tablets, AURA simplifies the transfer of information between teachers and students and fosters quick, clear communications, creating a more fluid and productive learning process.

The platform has already been successfully tested in an ongoing pilot program in the Amit chain of schools, and has already been fully incorporated in some of the locations.

Dr. Dina Goren-Bar, the chairwoman of the Optimum Group which owns Contentnet Education, said that “for the teachers, this is a futuristic teaching experience, made easy thanks to the tools we have built especially for them.”

Dov Shoham, the CEO of Radix Technologies, said that “the control platforms and monitoring tools are a product of our vast experience, which we have amassed over more than 10 years of development.”
