What's App, Sir? Teachers and Students in WhatsApp Groups (in Hebrew)
The instant messaging application WhatsApp enables quick, interactive multimedia communication in closed groups, as well as one-on-one interactions between selected group members. It has become one of the most popular applications, and is regularly used by both teachers and students for personal and group communication. In the present study, we explore student perspectives on the phenomenon of WhatsApp "classroom groups", in which both teachers and students from a particular classroom interact with one another in closed groups. Our methodology combines interviews and focus groups with students aged 13-18 (N= 88).

Temporal Withdrawal Behaviors in an Educational Policy Context
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the differential relations between two teacher withdrawal behaviors: work absence and lateness, and two types of school ethics: organizational justice (distributive, procedural) and ethical climate (formal, caring), all in the context of school turbulent environment. Data was collected from 1,016 teachers in 35 Israeli high schools. The GLIMMIX procedure was used to consider simultaneously the hierarchical structure of the data, as well as the two dependent variables (absence and lateness).

Sefaria in Action
Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Educational Partnership Initiative cohort for a fruitful school year! Starting in 2014, Sefaria launched the Partnership to invite teachers of Torah to formally be part of building Sefaria. The initiative, which began with four day schools and 100 students, was created to: (1) help teachers harness digital tools effectively and improve pedagogy around Jewish texts; and (2) provide Sefaria with a cohort of educators who use Sefaria in the classroom and deliver feedback on product development and refinement. This past school year, the program directly served 19 day schools, along with nine communal institutions, and reached more than 1,000 students.

Israeli High School Graduates’ Knowledge of the Holocaust: A Case Study
In November 2015, the Israeli Ministry of Education declared that the matriculation exam in history would no longer include the Holocaust, and instead students would be required to write a research paper. Following this decision, we wished to test the level of knowledge concerning the Holocaust among undergraduate students (excluding those who study contemporary history, which includes Holocaust studies).

The Global Citizenship Education Gap: Teacher Perceptions of the Relationship Between Global Citizenship Education and Students’ Socio-Economic Status
The present study examined Israeli secondary school teachers' perceptions of global citizenship education (GCE), concentrating on the socio-economic makeup of the schools' population. The study illuminates how teachers' perceptions of their students' mobility and the imagined futures that teachers attribute to their students may shape teaching. The study involves in-depth, semi-structured interviews with fifteen Israeli teachers at schools catering to student populations of various socio-economic backgrounds within the public, secular Jewish school sector. The study provides evidence of a GCE gap involving students, schools, and teachers, shedding light on this gap's possible consequences. Policy implications of the GCE gap and future research trajectories are introduced and discussed.
