Innovate Through Play
TING is definitely worthy of being considered the flagship product of the State of Israel for 2018 as more and more educators recognize it as “the Israeli mind in a box” showing their interest in it as a toolkit to teach entrepreneurial thinking and skills.

What is unique about TING?
1) It is the only self-learning and self-practicing tool-kit to develop entrepreneurship thinking, includes lesson plans, to maximize the learning process.
2) Minimizing knowledge gaps between people and within organizations.
3) Closing socio-economic gaps between developed and developing countries.
Who are the games meant for?
Anyone interested in Innovation, especially those who do not have the access to digital learning because of their financial or social limitations. The not so privileged communities of our nations may not be brought up in the most tech-savvy environment, leaving them with few resources to be educated and prepare for the future of Entrepreneurship in Education. With TING’s card games in their easy reach, they are not just educating themselves, but believing in themselves and their power to change the world. There can be plenty of formulae to reach one’s full potential, but can it be possible without believing that they can reach their full potential in the first place?
1) TING develop the skill of asking innovative questions.
2) TING develop a multi-disciplinary & multi-cultural thinking for problem solving.
3) TING increase players’ motivation, understanding, interest and skills.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF ‘TING’
Same as with Jewish Kabala, the secret is that in order to receive one must first GIVE.
Same with TING (which means ‘listen’ in Chinese) the secret is that in order to innovate and come up with new ideas one must first LISTEN.
“TING multidisciplinary ‘hybrid’ design thinking developed by Sharon Gal Or is the conscious blending of different fields of thought to discover and develop opportunities that were previously unseen by the status quo.” Guy Salomon – Gool, Online Education – February 11,
“This week I had the privileged to host Sharon Gal Or to conduct an innovation workshop #TINGathon with my students in my Innovation Business class in Ben Gurion University of the Negev. I must say that my students are very direct and say what is in their mind, and to my big surprise, they were more than happy with how the workshop went whereas students expressed and grew their own ideas through powerful innovation gamification exploration. … I strongly recommend that my colleagues incorporate this tool into their lessons. This is an excellent way to teach, empower and change the learning experience of innovation.”
Yifat Turbiner – Lecturer at Ben Gurion University of the Negev – March 19, 2018
“In a region rife with challenges, Israelis have honed the art of problem solving. It is by asking new questions in which we could find the courage and creativity to find new answers. I like to take the opportunity and thank Sharon for his insights and for playing with us his #TING game which makes the learning process exciting, interesting and effective!” Adi Kotler- TECH7Jouniors

The Innovation Nations Games
Card games for practicing and studying inventions and technologies in Israel
The State of Israel is a home to many scientific and technological innovations. Many inventions, scientific discoveries and technological developments originating in Israel have received worldwide acclaim. As for that, Israel has been named as the State of Startups and Innovation. Wish to expand your horizons and to find out which are the future Israeli start-ups and technologies to change the world?
What if there was a game that encourages creative thinking to improve the face of the community, the city, the state … What if there was a game that allowed us to invest and reward one another for creating creative ideas? So there is such a game – TING! – Shall we play?
I believe that everyone was born creative and that in the right environment you can create new and brilliant ideas worth investing in! TING was developed out of a need to get away from the cell phones. And it’s our young Millennial generation that inspired the work. TING brings us back in time, connects us and opens us to openly share creative ideas without the help of search engines and screens. TING is an enjoyable and rewarding game that encourages personal and organizational creativity. So go ahead and join us in the TING games to learn more of the Israeli innovative market to find out the secret of its success, and challenges for the future.
Quartets++ is a combination of Quartets and Uno, which makes the game much fun and exciting. Ages 7+ improves memory and teaches you the basic ‘know-how’ every young entrepreneur must have. A great family game for evenings and holidays (and if wish then also for studying Hebrew) – So who is afraid of innovation?
TripleX is the game you sure don’t wont to miss as this is where you get to practice a new thinking tool that is going to help you with your studies, work and life. TripleX is an associative multi-disciplinary thinking design for generating new ideas that were not yet conceived.
To learn more of the TripleX game design see a talk designed for the 75 years celebrations of the Hebrew University – Institute of Agriculture.
ASSOCIATIVE THINKING AS A TOOL FOR COOKING ENTREPRENEURIAL IDEAS IN AGRICULTURE AND IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY
What if… Space + Xrays + Art ?
So here, the moment of truth has arrived, where you vote and you support and enjoy the product that we have worked so hard to develop. Your support is much needed as only through a successful campaign we can realize this dream!
I invite you to take part in the project and thanks to you TING games will be published.
SO WHO AM I?
Sharon Gal Or is an English author, speaker, and international advisor on creative education to government, non-profits, education, and arts bodies.
GENESIS OF THE IDEA
I am also known as Galorian and I have been involved in technology, social entrepreneurship and game development for many years. TING is the combination of the three worlds in which I live that have been brought together – the technological world, the social world and the creative world. The idea for TING was the moment of my personal Eureka. When I asked myself, “What if there was a new flagship product for the State of Israel, one that would connect us to the world not above all but as a part?”, Since innovation takes place on a global scale. Or, for example, “What if we could gamify databases of technology companies to make them accessible to the younger generations?” Or … “What if we could invest in the creative ideas of our classmates or colleagues at work?” “What if we could build a community of global social ambassadors?” And so on … (You’ve probably figured out I’m an expert on asking “What if …?”)
Harnessing Israeli’s DNA to inspire, nurture, and bridge global cross-cultural innovation.
To support other NGOs’ in their mission and to bridge more collaboration among Industry – Schools – Governments – Communities – NGO’s
Therefore, I have joined organizations and communities such as: Tamid, Hillel, Ruach Tova, and others – so that we will do everything in our power to ensure that the campaign succeeds.
Risks and challenges
We’re extremely passionate about the TING game and committed to doing everything in our power to solve any challenges that may arise along the way – that’s a promise!
We have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet our promised deadlines. We have our manufacturing and operations all ready to go, and we’ve made sure to leave enough time so that your TING/s arrive as planned. We are confident that our calculated plan will work effectively once we’re funded, and that we’ll be putting your Ting in your hands by September before ROSH HASHANA.
So a few thanks as we take part in Israel 70’s Independence celebrations as we have never experienced it!
