Même si le texte est en anglais, l'étude mentionnée est intéressante sur l'impact d'utilisation d'un iPad en classe.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 17, 11:06 AM
Good teachers use tools wisely and understand that what works well in one classroom may not elsewhere. They understand that digital technology is changing so rapidly and there are commercial interests at play that it is important to learn skills rather than just use tools blindly. Teachers perform as craftspeople who use their tools wisely and teach with them and through them.

One Father’s Quest to Help His Children Become Fluent In Hebrew - Tablet Magazine – Jewish News and Politics, Jewish Arts and Culture, Jewish Life and Religion | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

In this day and age, the word “birthright,” especially in a Jewish context, has come to mean one thing: free trips to Israel for young adults with some connection to Judaism. But Liore Alroy, a businessman from Passaic, New Jersey, is on a mission to make fluency in Hebrew as much of a Jewish birthright as visiting the holy land.

MOFET JTEC - Hebrew Infusion at American Jewish Summer Camps

MOFET JTEC - Hebrew Infusion at American Jewish Summer Camps | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

This article introduces the idea of Hebrew infusion, based on research I have conducted on Hebrew use at North American Jewish summer camps in collaboration with my colleagues Sharon Avni and Jonathan Krasner. This study involved observations at 36 Jewish camps across North America (ranging from secular to Haredi), interviews with about 200 staff members and campers, and a survey of over 100 camp directors. My thinking on infusion is influenced by Netta Avineri’s concept of “metalinguistic community,” which came out of her analysis of Yiddish in the United States.
