The Tech for Learning Initiative Kicked Off This Summer
In August, The Jewish Education Project proudly launched the Tech for Learning Initiative Summer Institute, supported by the Jim Joseph Foundation. Teams of educators from nine Jewish day schools came together at our Manhattan office for a three-day intensive learning experience that focused on meaningful use of technology in the classroom and culminated in a micro-grant application process. The participating schools were at very different points in their technology integration journeys and came from different denominations and regions within the Tri-State area.

Book Review: Miriam B. Raider-Roth, Professional Development in Relational Learning Communities: Teachers in Connection
Professional Development in Relational Learning Communities: Teachers in Connection consolidates a decade of action research from three successive cycles of week-long summer seminars for teachers, all designed to foster a Relational Learning Community (RLC). The clarity with which the book documents how disparate theoretical frames animate the seminar’s design and the intentionality behind each of the seminars’ practices is notable; it is the unique blend of gravitas and heart with which Raider-Roth and her faculty approach their project, that leaves its deepest impression on the reader.

Assisting Struggling Teachers Effectively
In this research, we examine strategies school principals have used to assist struggling teachers. In an open-ended questionnaire designed for this study, we asked 219 school principals to describe a successful intervention they held. The results show that principals prefer supportive assistance to organizational changes (such as moving the teacher to another class). They rarely used confrontational approaches.

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.

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.
