MOFET Online Seminar: Challenges in Evaluating the Study of Hebrew as an Additional Language (in Ivrit) | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This year’s MOFET online seminar for the teaching of Hebrew to beheld between January 7 – 17, 2019, will focus on assessment and challenges it poses to teachers and to the planning of learning processes.

In the field of language instruction in general and teaching Hebrew as an additional language, special issues must be addressed, including: How to assess the mastery of language skills (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression, and verbal expression)? Which methods of assessment are appropriate, and which are not? How can technological applications help evaluate?

This post introduces a short series of monthly posts which will dive more deeply into the research-practice gap. The posts are for funders, educators, researchers, and evaluators who hope to engage with some of the questions and problems that the gap presents. Future posts will focus on such issues as: (a) the promise and perils of “definitive” research findings, (b) when numbers aren’t enough, (c) the difference between qualitative research and anecdotes, (d) what education leaders can do when they don’t have time to read the literature, (e) how funders can make evidence informed decisions, and (f) using data to teach (and not just sort) students.

Why our children should receive the HPV vaccine | Sharon Galper Grossman | The Blogs | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

HPV can be transmitted even without promiscuity — and the reality is that promiscuity exists, even in the Orthodox world. Even if the vaccine only saves a small number of women, every single life is worth saving. Can you really be certain that your child will never be at risk for HPV infection?

The Game is Afoot! Gamifying Mishna in Fifth Grade | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education

The Game is Afoot! Gamifying Mishna in Fifth Grade | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
I’ve taught beginning Mishna for almost ten years and have never found a method that satisfies me. Mishna suffers from several curricular handicaps: It is the new limmud on the block; It’s legal, rather than narrative; And it usually loses in the battle for classroom minutes. To understate the matter, Mishna is rarely the favorite subject of my fifth graders. I saw an uptick in interest when I added videos and some augmented reality, but never the constant excitement I’d hoped for. This year I intend for that to change. And you’re going to help me.

I’m writing this journal to elicit feedback for my new project and commit myself too publicly to give up. I hope to share my plans and gimmicks, successes and failures, great moments and course corrections. To my knowledge this type of gamification has never been tried before in elementary Jewish Education, perhaps for good reason…

The Bronfman Fellowship is a vibrant network of 1,200+ pluralistic young Jews from Israel and North America. The program begins with a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to Israel.

On Data and Deep Learning | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education

On Data and Deep Learning | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

We now live in a world that’s full of data. We can get analytics on anything we want and learning to manage and absorb data is a skill we all must master. But when it comes to our children, I think we need to be more mindful of the types of data we focus on. Yes, we need grades to put on a transcript, so students can get into college, but those grades shouldn’t be what we emphasize as important to a well-lived Jewish life.

What we need to do is elevate learning and demand something deeper and truer from it. We should demand that it not only create depth of knowledge and refinement of skills, but nourishment for the soul and a desire to be our best selves.

Re‐Playing Maimonides' Codes: Designing Games to Teach Religious Legal Systems | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education

Re‐Playing Maimonides' Codes: Designing Games to Teach Religious Legal Systems | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Lost & Found is a game series, created at the Initiative for Religion, Culture, and Policy at the Rochester Institute of Technology MAGIC Center. The series teaches medieval religious legal systems. This article uses
the first two games of the series as a case study to explore a particular set of processes to conceive, design, and develop games for learning. It includes the background leading to the author's work in games and teaching religion, and the specific context for the Lost & Found series. It discusses the rationale behind working to teach religious legal systems more broadly, then discuss the hermeneutics influencing the approach to understanding the legal systems being modeled and closes with a discussion of the kind of teaching and learning involved in the design of the games and early-stage data on the public play of the games.

What else can we do to impact the high cost of day school tuition? The most viable solution is evidenced by New York University’s recent unexpected announcement of free tuition for all current and future medical students, “regardless of need or merit.” NYU said that the rationale for the impressive initiative was the recognition of “a moral imperative that must be addressed” given the crippling debt burdening today’s medical school graduates. Yet a closer examination of NYU’s strategic initiative also reveals lessons that can be fruitfully applied to day school tuition. How did NYU do it? In one word: endowment….

Inviting Leaders into a Culture of Inquiry with Jewish Content at the Core | Jewish Portal of Teacher Education | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
The Mandel Teacher Educator Institute (MTEI), now in its 23rd year. is a program that strengthens the Jewish community by developing educational leaders – “teachers of teachers” – who are spearheading powerful and innovative professional development experiences for their institutions and communities. We believe that ongoing, substantive professional development for educational leaders and teachers is central to revitalizing Jewish education. MTEI’s intensive two-year program that consists of six, 4-day seminars with assignments in the field between meetings, practicing havruta text study, investigating teaching and learning practices in small and large groups, learning skills of communication and relational learning for leaders is a building block toward this goal.
