This three-part course explores how easily educational technology can help Hebrew teachers overcome some of the natural challenges that they face in teaching Hebrew, and showcases the added value that EdTech can provide in the classroom. The session engages teachers in specific written tools as well as voice and video recording tools that can be used in Hebrew instruction, and the methodologies that they support. Participants will understand the power of these tools to:virtually take students “beyond the context of the classroom” to encounter and utilize Hebrew on contemporary and interesting topics;
- enable students to access authentic Hebrew in both receptive proficiency modes (reading and listening), and to express themselves in both expressive proficiency modes (writing and speaking);
- maximize student engagement and collaborative interaction both in the classroom and on homework assignments; and
- promote differentiated instruction that accommodates students on different proficiency levels.
Hands-on activities will allow participants to apply the tools and methodologies to their own curricula.
The sessions are conducted in Hebrew and English.
