Registration is now open for RealSchool's Summer Sandbox, a three-day workshop in Teaneck, NJ from July 8-10, 2013, where you can collaborate with educators, parents, students, administrators and board members on any project for Jewish day schools that interests you.
RealSchool is an education reform program that has been active in Jewish day schools for the past two years. This summer RealSchool is giving all stakeholders in Jewish day schools the opportunity to experience our model, which is based on an ethos of having hard fun, working collaboratively, celebrating failure and learning by doing.
Whether you’re an educator, student, administrator, board member or parent, you’re invited to the RealSchool Summer Sandbox, where you can join a team of like-minded individuals and have the time and resources to “play and tinker,” that is, come up with a tangible project in your area of interest and return to your school ready to implement your new vision. The idea is to use 21st-century educational innovations to make a concrete plan to change the way you teach in or run your school.
We’ve suggested team ideas in areas we know stakeholders are passionate about: project-based learning; digital literacy and citizenship; community-based learning; and meaning-making in Jewish day schools. We’d love for participants to create their own teams based on their interests as well. So get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work on creating the classroom and school of the future!
