Good Teaching Should Drive Technology Use

Years ago, I used to clip newspaper or magazine articles of interest to share.  This virtual forum applies the same concept.  There are an overwhelmingly number of blogs and sites dedicated to technology in education.  Selected are those that are of interest to or have direct application for use in Jewish schools.

 

As always, before using a specific technology or web tool, it is important for educators to remember that good teaching practices drive the choice of technology. Keeping your eye on student learning and goals for each student helps to decide which technology, website, or project is appropriate.

 

I welcome suggestions and comments.

Smart Notebooks in Hebrew

http://exchange.smarttech.com 

Smart Exchange has a large downloadable database of Smart Notebooks in numerous subjects for numerous grade levels.  You can select other countries to find notebooks in other languages.  If you select "Israel" (categorized under Europe-haven't figured out why), you will find many downloadable notebooks in Hebrew.  Once you download any notebook, you can then edit it.
