Our students are using digital technologies to interact, connect, communicate, share ideas, and access information. As Jewish educators, we have a responsibility to harness these powers of technology for use in Jewish education. The Jewish Educator Technology Initiative (JETI)Ó Mini-Series will introduce you to digital technology tools and reflective frameworks that will help you do just that.
Our learning journey will be rooted in havruta (partner) text study and the development of peer-to-peer relationships that research has proven to be essential for transferring professional learning into professional action. In each session, we will play with and use digital technology tools as a model for how you can use them in your school and/or classroom.
