About JETS Israel
JETS Israel was founded by Smadar Goldstein and Rabbi Stan Peerless in 2009 to promote the development of online Jewish learning in Jewish educational institutions worldwide. JETS offers a wide range of online learning programs for school groups, individual students and adult education in the areas of Jewish studies, Israel Education and Hebrew language. JETS builds online curriculum and blended learning for Jewish topics.
JETS creates its own educational materials, including innovative classes and curriculum for synchronous, blended and asynchronous learning programs. JETS also designs and creates learning materials for leading educational institutions. JETS is also a world leader in providing professional development (PD) for e-learning in Jewish educational settings. JETS staff facilitates both online and face-to-face PD sessions to give teachers the tools and techniques that can help them expand individualized and collaborative learning in their classrooms.
JETS promotes user-friendly, up-to-date EdTech tools and technologies which combine with supportive didactic methodologies to give schools and their teachers access to interactive, highly engaging learning experiences.
In addition, JETS promotes Israel-Diaspora relations through its Shutafut program, which matches a school in Israel to a school in the Diaspora, allowing students from both schools to enjoy the opportunity to learn and share together in an online platform. The JETS classes are accessible from anywhere in the world via interactive e-learning and web-conferencing platforms. Many classes include additional participatory activities and follow-up materials – including online games, quizzes, project-based learning activities and more — using Learning Management System platforms.
