BBYO’s Convention’s Delicate Balancing Act on the Refugee Debate

BBYO’s Convention’s Delicate Balancing Act on the Refugee Debate | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
In an ever-polarizing age in America, nonprofits often need to decide how to make their organization’s voice or constituency’s voice heard on policy issues without making overtly political statements. Such was the delicate balancing act navigated by the BBYO Jewish pluralistic teen movement and the thousands of attendees at its recent International Convention.

Passion in Religious Education

Passion in Religious Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Do we need to cultivate the inner spiritual life of our Jewish educators, as Aryeh Ben David claims? Certainly we do. But as Ziva Reimer Hassenfeld has argued in response, based on recent empirical research at the Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis, many teachers already bring a passion for Judaism to their teaching. Passion is not enough. What those teachers need, she continues, is “the professional development necessary to foster skilled, reflective practitioners.” I agree with Ziva’s argument, but I’ve also been thinking recently about another aspect of the issue. Sometimes passion is not enough – but sometimes it is too much. When a teacher demonstrates passion, when a class seems to get drawn into a focus on the teacher’s persona, does that inevitably threaten the boundaries between teacher and student? Does it interfere with learning? Is it simply too dangerous?

The-Wellbeing-of-Learners-and-Teachers-March-2017 | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Education systems worldwide have accepted the fact that a clear, positive correlation exists between students' wellbeing and the quality of their learning, satisfaction, and academic achievements. In parallel, a positive correlation has been found between the wellbeing of educators in educational institutions and the quality of their teaching and their feeling of professional satisfaction.
The theoretical and practical aspects associated with the bolstering and enhancement of the wellbeing of all partners in the educational institutions will be presented during this online seminar.
The seminar is a collaborative initiative of The MOFET Institute and the Research and Development group (RDC) in Teacher Psychologies of the Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE). ​​

This global strategy marries the large, but often separated, disciplines of information literacy and media literacy and creates a common vocabulary for folks in multiple areas of knowledge to engage in conversation. It also positions these critical literacies as a combined set of competencies–knowledge, skills and attitudes–central for living and working in our world today.

Creating Conditions for Growth: A New Hub for Masa Educators | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Since embarking upon my own journey with Masa, I have sought to understand how the Masa team and its partners can better work together to fulfill this monumental educational mission, particularly within the context of our fast-paced, complex and globalized world and the challenges it presents for us and our participants both as individuals and as a people. In order to fulfill this mission, over the last two years, Masa’s organizational leadership has consulted with our diverse community of stakeholders in Israel and from around the world and as a result of this process we are implementing a new set of pedagogies and core principles, diverse professional learning opportunities and an evaluation process that will better serve our participants.

Reflections on the Current Debate on Women’s Professional Spiritual Leadership

Reflections on the Current Debate on Women’s Professional Spiritual Leadership | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
 During the past two weeks, the policy statement issued by the Orthodox Union on the role of women in spiritual leadership in the Orthodox community has generated much discussion and debate. We note in introduction that we have great regard and esteem for the leadership of the OU, its commitment to the Jewish people and the amazing work they do on behalf of us all.  Moreover, we deeply respect the learning and sincerity of the panel of roshei yeshiva and synagogue rabbis on the rabbinic panel created by the OU. A number of them are cherished teachers and mentors, some are good friends and colleagues, and some are even students from past decades. At the same time, we feel it important to share reflections on the statement, its genesis and its implications.

Pence makes surprise visit to vandalized Jewish cemetery

Pence makes surprise visit to vandalized Jewish cemetery | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

 

Vice President Pence on Wednesday made a surprise visit to a historic Jewish cemetery near St. Louis to condemn the recent vandalism that took place there. 

“From the heart, there is no place in America for hatred or acts of prejudice or violence or anti-Semitism,” he said. 

Pence called Missouri’s response to the incident “inspiring" while standing next to Eric Greitens (R), the state’s first Jewish governor. 

Pence decried the vandalism as “a sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil” during a speech earlier Wednesday in St. Louis. 
After his remarks at the cemetery, the vice president and the governor listened to a prayer from a rabbi and then cleared brush with volunteers taking part in a beautification project.

Google Slides: Can We Now Call It A Video Editor? By Jeffrey Bradbury | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Are you looking to find the perfect video editor to use with your students? As shared last week on TeacherCast, Google recently added a pretty awesome feature in Google Slides that now allows users to create slide decks using videos stored in their Google Drives. As if that feature isn't a total game changer, users can now have additional options when working with video. By right clicking (or double tapping) on the video box, you can open up a new Video Options panel that allows you to edit and trim the video to a desired size.
