The Branding Of Jewish Education

The Branding Of Jewish Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

good brand delivers a credible promise that the target would like to personify. You don’t register with a day school. You share its values. Good branding creates a more committed, participating day school family. It provides more sharing than following and more involvement than apathy. With a credible and unique brand, parents, students and teachers can finally belong to a school, and not just enroll.

How to Upload to YouTube from Your Android Phone | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Just a few of the ways that you can have students use their phones includes recording short videos to use as blog posts, capturing highlights of a field trip, or recording an interview with an elder as part of a local history project.

Machine learning's next trick is generating videos from photos

Researchers from MIT attempting to solve this problem have come up with some very impressive results, using specially trained neural networks to turn images into videos and getting the computer to essentially predict what happens next. Their model has plenty of limitations — the videos are seconds long, tiny, and often nightmarish — but it’s still an impressive feat of machine imagination, and another step toward computers that understand the world a little more like humans.

JECC's Jewish Holiday Snapshots

JECC's Jewish Holiday Snapshots | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

"Jewish Holiday Snapshots" offers quick overviews (snapshots) of Jewish holidays. Using the drop down menus, above, take a wide-angle look at the bigger ideas, or zoom in for a close-up to learn about common practices. Currently (September, 2016) only Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur information is posted, but if the site proves useful, other holidays will be filled in. The JECC built "Jewish Holiday Snapshots" especially for early childhood teachers who are looking for an adult-oriented overview as they prepare learning experiences for their young students. However, the site's information and resources are certainly applicable to others who want to click and learn. EC educators (and interested others) are invited to explore the pages whenever is convenient - at home, while involved in classroom prep, or while sitting in a carpool line. Directors may wish to devote part of a staff meeting to individual and/or small group learning with "Snapshots," with the caveat that those around the table also share personal experiences, understandings and questions.

Campus Week: Going Back to School? Here’s How To Fight the Israel Haters

Campus Week: Going Back to School? Here’s How To Fight the Israel Haters | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
A few months ago, as the academic year was slouching to an end, I wrote in these pages to encourage the not-yet-graduated to stand up and fight anti-Israel sentiment on college campuses. The piece must have struck a nerve, as several readers, most of them parents of students or students-to-be, wrote and urged me to follow up my note with another, more practical one that advised those on the quad what to do when they come face-to-face with the haters. I demurred, in part because the question is more complex than the season, with its beach days and its sandy distractions, permits, and in part because I felt that enough fine organizations were already fighting the good fight on the ground. Now that summer’s almost over, however, and minivans are again being saddled with stuff and charging toward dorm rooms everywhere, it’s time to wrestle with the question once again.
