Tech for Learning Initiative: Summer Institute
The Jewish Education Project is inviting teams of educators from Tri-State area middle and high schools to join us for a 3 day Summer Institute (August 14 -16, 2017). Through the Tech for Learning Initiative, supported by the Jim Joseph Foundation, school teams will work and learn together over several days in August. We will identify key challenges and opportunities that drive technology use, and the processes to implement educational technology that helps address them. We will also explore pedagogic approaches and theories behind integrating technology with learning. We’ll learn from each other and from leading experts in the field, and each team will create a plan for piloting new technology projects in their school. After completing the Summer Institute, schools will be eligible to submit applications for microgrants of up to $5,000 to help put their plans into action.

Google Escape Bus Hits the Roads in Israel
Catching on to the global Escape Room craze, Google decided to provide Israelis with a mobile version at their doorsteps – asking them to crack codes using five of the firm’s popular apps: Translate, Photos, Maps, Search and Drive. By launching such a challenge, the company aims to show how these apps can collectively help users solve a variety of life problems, a Google spokeswoman told The Jerusalem Post at the site on Wednesday.

Parenting: From Tamagotchi to Social Media
In my opinion, parenting in the age of technology and social media requires the same basic moral stance that parenting in the age of TV required – the same as parenting in the age of artificial intelligence will require. I believe it starts with asking. “What makes sense, for what purpose, and what kind of kids do we want as a result?” I think 3 basic ideas still stand for parenting in the age of technology.

Sanhedrin Trail to Be Israel’s First Interactive Hiking Path
Israel’s first “smart” hiking trail, under construction between Tiberias and Beit Sheʽarim National Park in the Lower Galilee, will bring hikers back in history to the Second Temple period more than 2,000 years ago, when the Great Sanhedrin — the supreme Jewish authority of sages – was active in this region. Hikers will have access to an innovative augmented reality-based smartphone application that will virtually reconstruct heritage sites, integrate virtual guides for children along the route and bring to life prominent scholars such as the four rabbis mentioned in the Passover Haggadah.

Teenage Peer-To-Peer Knowledge Sharing through Social Network Sites in Secondary Schools
The promise of social network technology for learning purposes has been heavily debated, with proponents highlighting its transformative and opponents its distracting potential. However, little is known about the actual, everyday use of ubiquitous social network sites for learning and study purposes in secondary schools. In the present work, we present findings from two survey studies on representative samples of Israeli, Hebrew-speaking teenagers (N1 = 206 and N2 = 515) which explored the scope, characteristics and reasons behind such activities.

Matriculation Without Exams
In the near future, Israeli students will receive a matriculation certificate without a matriculation test. Presently this applies to three subjects - history, Bible and literature - the revolutionary process is designed to encourage deep experiential learning rather than memorization of material. Instead of taking matriculation exams, students will perform various tasks throughout the year on the computer, at home and in class with close supervision of their teachers. The final grade will be made up of the grades given to the various assignments and will appear on the matriculation certificate.
