Milgo as an educational experience

"It's exciting to hear students share their feelings thanks to Milgo's questionnaires. Their answers left me speechless. It's moving to hear students use emotional expressions like: "I can see in the teacher's eyes how much she is really listening to me," or "I can ask the teacher for more attention when I am finding this difficult, without any shame." It encouraged and reinvigorated me while also making me realize that I have a lot still to work on."

Lilian Latin
Science teacher, Eroni Het Reshit High School, Tel Aviv

"The teachers really liked Milgo because of its simplicity – they find it easy to work with. They went back to their classes with a Milgo presentation and devoted an entire class to it. They were happy to share their work in the classroom with me."

Hagar Lufo
Teacher and Milgo coordinator, Branco Weiss Yitzchak Rabin High School, Mazkeret Batya

"Students opting to include their names voluntarily helped me change my teaching strategy completely..."

Idit Lahav
Aviv Elementary School, Tel Aviv

"I am so pleased that I decided to bring all the school’s class teachers into our use of Milgo. We’re in it together. There’s a good atmosphere about the process and all the teachers are fully participating."

Dr. Yedidia Etzion
Principal, Branko Weiss Keshet High School, Mazkeret Batya

"When they first told us about SEL, we thought “Oh no, they’re throwing yet another thing on us without offering any real support or explanation of what we’re supposed to do? Milgo gave us real examples and knowledge about SEL. Suddenly we could see the connection between all these concepts and our actual teaching reality"

Hadar Amar
Teacher, Aviv Elementary School, Tel Aviv

"Milgo reflected what each student was thinking. Around nine to ten students voluntarily opted to give their names on their Milgo questionnaire. When I looked at all the questionnaires, I learned what each student wanted and felt."

Athar Abu Salah
Science teacher, Shehakim High School, Nahariya.

"Milgo helped me work with those students that normally fall through the cracks rather than just focus on the extremes – those that excel and those who have the most difficulties. It helped me see a lot of things I wouldn't otherwise have noticed."

Neta Lip
Teacher, Aviv Elementary School, Tel Aviv

"Suddenly our eyes are opened to things we didn't see before, the things to which we didn't pay enough attention."

We are working diligently on this. We would be happy to update you if youd like to contact us by WhatsApp.

Teachers are often wary about how data is used. How do you handle this concern?

We totally understand.

Milgo was created with a deep awareness of teachers' need for privacy in their classroom assessment process. That's why our reports are sent directly to the teachers' WhatsApp and are password protected for their individual access. Administrators can choose to invite teachers to share their data and conduct a supportive professional dialogue.

At the same time, Milgo sends summary reports to principals and grade directors (per the schools preference). But these summaries do not give teachers names.

Do you offer professional development courses to support Milgo’s introduction to a school?

Our development partners have excellent pedagogical programs suited to our library content.  Contact us here or on WhatsApp and we will be happy to connect you to them.

My teachers don't have time for anything as it is. Won’t Milgo just add to their already heavy load?

Milgo's main goal is to save your team time in their ongoing assessment processes that you are doing away regarding climate and SEL (for external or internal needs) . With the whole process taking place on their WhatsApp, teachers only need invest a few minutes to get great insights and recommendations delivered directly to their mobile.

What does a school need to do to integrate Milgo?

We request that each school appoint at least one "Milgo Leader" (Can be a year coordinator, counselor, evaluation coordinator, pedagogy coordinator or lead teacher). Milgo Leaders who are trained on the system (only takes an hour!) will be equipped to manage Milgo measurement and improvement processes with the teachers at the school.
