Canadian-Israeli Academic & Entrepreneur Seeks to Solve School Students Bag Pack Excessive Weight Through Kickstarter Funded Tablets Pilot

Nachshon Goltz, Global-Regulation’s Founder and CEO, and an academic at York University, carried his 12 years old daughter bag pack to school and decided to take upon himself a mission – bring technology to solve an everlasting real-world problem


Toronto, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/14/2014 -- When Goltz’s daughter texted him on her way to school: “Its 2014 and my backpack is crazy heavy." Nachshon realized he must take on this mission for our children. And when his daughter's teacher told him that this problem will only increase with age, Goltz knew he must do whatever he can to solve this problem. Amazingly enough, when the idea was shared with people close to Goltz, the common response was: "Well, we carried it too."

This is an opportunity to try and solve an everlasting and acute real-world problem for students across North America and the world; excessively heavy school bags which not only may compromise our children’s health, but diminish their joy from learning.

Research length: May 1, 2014 - April 31, 2015 Stages:
1) Planning and partners coordination (April-July 2014)
2) Pilot - Phase 1 - Current situation review (August-October, 2014)
3) Pilot - Phase 2 - Enotebook implementation (November-January, 2015)
4) Pilot - Phase 3 - Comparison with control class (February-March, 2015)
5) Conclusions and commercialization (April 2015)

This is a rare and time sensitive opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this market at its inception and be positioned at the forefront of the digital
school as a dominant factor in enhancing the educational experience of the next generation.

About Nachshon Goltz
Nachshon Goltz is the founder and CEO of Global-Regulation, a research and information provider focusing on empirical case studies and serving, among others, Harvard University, NYU University, the University of Texas, York University, Ottawa University, Ryerson University and the University of Toronto.
The daily challenge every student faces is that they have to carry to and from school more books, notebooks, calendars and other items than ever before. The solution Goltz has created is in the form of a customized tablet with special software and network connection that will contain all the information currently carried on paper by students from home to school and back.
The current trend is led by the government and is less focused on the back pack weight, and more on the digital school potential for progress. Indicators imply that the Digital School is a rapidly emerging market that will be eventually implemented worldwide, including a demand for network infrastructure, software and hardware.

This project will only be funded if at least $100,000 CAD is pledged by Fri, May 9 2014 9:09 PM +05:30.
