PCJE Conference: Cultivating the Whole Child through a Jewish Lens
As Jewish educators, we are called upon to teach texts and content, inculcate skills and model Jewish values, all while inspiring students to embrace a Jewish life that has contemporary meaning and purpose. As 21st-century guides, we are tasked with developing moral character, nurturing spirituality, fostering healthy relationships, building resilience and cultivating independence. How do we balance these roles and determine our priorities? Is there a deeper understanding of Jewish text that could provide direction? Are there new findings in education that offer guidance? What skills and insights do we need to keep sharpening? What will excellence in Jewish education look like in the next 5-10 years? At the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators November 2017 conference (November 5-7, 2017), Cultivating the Whole Child Through a Jewish Lens – for PCJE alumni and their colleagues – we will explore these and other questions in a warm, spirited environment of collegiality and openness. We will learn together, reflect on our work and challenges, and share ideas and best practices.

“Unless We Progress, We Regress”: The Challenge of Jewish Edtech
In an article entitled “Supporting Effective Technology Integration and Implementation”, McLeod and Richardson wrote: “The speed at which digital technologies change these days brings unique challenges. … Any technology plan that is not able to adapt yearly or even quicker is one that may be outdated the moment it is written.” In response to this challenge, Jerusalem Edtech Solutions (JETS) has recently launched an online Jewish EdTech Support Center.

Jednetworking at #ISTE2017
I first attended the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (better known as ISTE) in Philadelphia in 2011 as a part of a cohort from the Avi Chai Foundation. The conference with over 15,000 educators all dedicated to meaningful integration of technology into their classrooms was overwhelming - but in a good way. For this year’s Jewish Educators Network Meetup at ISTE, the planning committee which consisted of myself, Michael Cohen, Seth Dimbert, Stew Greenberg, and Benny Gross, wanted to give Jewish educators the opportunity to present to the group as well as have ample time for follow-up discussion, and give away and raffle off some serious swag. We made a call for presentations, received many worthy respondents, and came up with the following program of 5-minute Ignite Style presentations.
