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.

How Google Translate is Making Learning English Fun in Israel
Author Lee Reshef
Using neural machine translation, we’ve just updated Hebrew and Arabic languages on Google Translate. But what you can’t see on the surface is that these translations also improved thanks to students across Israel. As English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students used the Google Translate Community platform to learn and practice their English, they actually improved translations for everyone in the process.

New Schools, New Directions: Approaches to Online/Blended Learning
The AVI CHAI Foundation developed a funding initiative designed to incubate new low tuition Jewish day schools built on a blended learning model. AVI CHAI’s goal in setting out to do this work was to provide proof points for the model’s viability as well as its potential to influence established schools. This report, an analysis of this effort, focuses on three new schools funded by the foundation. The schools reflect a range of grade levels, affliations, and educational design models. When selected, all were beginning to put their plans into action. These schools were observed two to three times a year over a three-year period with the pseudonyms Darom, Zafon, and Mizrah.

Is Blended Learning a 21st c. Silver Bullet or Snake Oil? (Spoilers: It’s Neither.)
The blended Jewish initiative we are launching in 2018 does not seek to do away with teachers. We provide an alternative to the inefficient factory model in which teachers have worked for centuries. In our blended Jewish model, student-teacher ratios are irrelevant as teachers and students can interact individually and more regularly, augmenting the essential face to face with Skype, text messaging and email. Technology can liberate learning from the tyranny of the bell or the schedule. Learning can happen anytime and anywhere.
