“We want to continue the program indefinitely. It is so valuable. We don’t need a parent demo anymore — some of our students are youner siblings of previous online students and all of the parents and students know about it now and look forward to it “ Rabbi Shelley Knaiz, Temple Emanuel of Pascack Valley
I learned about the varied possibilities to evaluate student knowledge and how to build an online community – which I didn’t think was possible. It’s easier to do this online than in a ‘traditional’ classroom!
I love how the assignment was never “read the text”… we engaged with the text so much and on so many meaningful levels in order to experience other challenges. What a refreshing way to learn.
It is an eye opener to what can be done in the class with the tablets.
This has been the best PD experience of my entire teaching career.
Smadar Goldstein and JETS were central and instrumental to our faculty’s professional development this year. Smadar worked closely with me to create targeted, actionable training for our teachers that was well-prepared, authoritative and delivered with polish and professionalism. Her ability to connect with our faculty virtually -despite the thousands of miles between them- was impressive and the follow-up provided via email, telephone and video-conference, as well as her willingness to travel come to our school when she was in the States, meant that every single teacher received training “Lefi Darko”.
It was very informative and really opened my eyes to see how much technology can be used in a Judaic Studies classroom.
I very much recommend JETS for professional development for Jewish Educators. They were a very valuable resource in my elementary and middle school classrooms.
Very practical, accessible, very teacher and student friendly.
