American Jewish Children’s Thoughts and Feelings About the Jewish State: Laying the Groundwork for a Developmental Approach to Israel Education - Online First - Springer

American Jewish Children’s Thoughts and Feelings About the Jewish State: Laying the Groundwork for a Developmental Approach to Israel Education - Online First - Springer | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This study presents the first longitudinal data on American Jewish children’s thoughts and feelings about Israel, highlighting children’s development between kindergarten and second grade. Drawing upon interviews and photo and music elicitation exercises with Jewish elementary school students, the research examines both children’s conceptual understandings of Israel—what they imagine it to be—and their feelings toward Israel. The research finds that throughout the early elementary grades, children think of Israel as a place where both good and bad can happen—a duality that remains relatively stable over time. Yet their feelings about Israel change over time, as consistently happy emotions give way to a wider range of affective responses to Israel, including worry, fear, and sadness. This manuscript examines both children’s static conceptions of Israel and their changing feelings about the Jewish state, addressing the implications of these findings for elementary school Israel education and Jewish communal policy toward youth engagement with Israel.

iPray: Why No App Can Replace My Siddur? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
It all started with one small flip, followed by a rip. Some time ago, while attending the daily Shacharit (morning) service in the synagogue, I was turning the pages of my small siddur (prayer book) when a small tear appeared in the page that I had turned. The torn page became partially detached, and eventually(...)

Fantastic Google Chrome Apps and Extensions for Teachers and Students!

Fantastic Google Chrome Apps and Extensions for Teachers and Students! | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Here are EVEN MORE Chrome Apps and Extensions! (More than 60 total!) I'm a crazy Chrome Addict! My list keeps growing! Chrome is such a powerful browser, and can offer so much to enhance learning and productivity. My original list is now broken into two, separate lists: one for Chrome apps and one for Chrome extensions. The extension list is still, by far, the longest, but look for that to change soon. There is a little something for everybody. These lists will continue to grow and evolve, and that is why I keep them on their own resource pages on this site (much easier to maintain). Explore these lists and try something new today!

Who’s at the Table?

Who’s at the Table? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
For those interested in active, experiential learning, the Seder and the Passover requirement to see oneself as if s/he has left Egypt offer all sorts of opportunities to enact the Exodus story. I scroll through my Facebook feed before the holiday and see friends and acquaintances dressed like Pharaohs and ancient Egyptians, setting tables adorned with objects and animals that represent the ten plagues, and even engaged in pre-Passover water fights that resemble the parting Red Sea. I love all the ways people are finding to make the holiday a fun one.

Blog B’Omer

Blog B’Omer | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
his year we will mark our own Omer, by counting 49 days with a series of blog posts, to be known as “Blog B’Omer,” that will provide many different insights into the minds of people passionately engaged and committed to Jewish education. The only charge that we gave our authors was to bring themselves and their passion to their blogs. In doing so we hope that we can all be a bit more liberated from that which is holding us back, and inspired to do even greater work in bringing the beauty of Jewish wisdom, to the Jewish people.
