Welcome!

One of the reasons behind forming this was group was to address some of the issues that are unique to Judaic studies teachers. Just as a way to get the discussion started I am going to list some of the issues that I am currently dealing with and my hope is that this will spark future discussions.
Topics/Issues
1. Establishing Benchmarks and Standards for the Judaic studies curriculum
2. Incorporating 21st Century Skills and Technology within the Judaic Studies curriculum
3. What do we want a graduate from a Jewish Day School to look like
4 Ivrit B'Ivrit
5. Making Tefilah more meaningful

I have found that students are most attentive and eager to learn during an actual test. The reasons are obvious as they have the pressure of the test weighing on them. Since our main goal as teachers…Continue

Welcome Daniel! I should also introduce myself -- though a former congregational school teacher, I now work for PELIE - the Partnership for Effective Learning and Innovative Education, which funds part-time Jewish education. A large part of my job is to determine how technology can contribute to the success of the field. I am trying to spread the word about the group through our social networks so that we can get more teachers involved in the conversation! Daniel, maybe you can get some World ORT constituent educators to get involved also?

Hi everyone, just to introduce myself, I'm not a Judaic Studies teacher (my background is in ICT teaching) but have a passion for both Jewish education and integrating tech in the classroom. I've recently joined World ORT and will be working on a number of Jewish learning projects through them, I look forward to learning from you and with you.

1) I use a Smartboard.

2) I put homework online, quizzes etc.

3) In some classess we have a computer for each student. They use it to take notes, develop an online portfolio, create their own Powerpoints etc. It is all part of content management system (Moodle).

4) I have students leave a message on Google voice of them reading the Gemarah and give feedback.

5) Play certain videos commercial or from Youtube when appropiate.

6) At times I video a short skit or have them create their own and play it for the class.

I guess that is a start.

Tzvi
