JETS creates community events for schools and Jewish educational groups, both online and face-to-face, which provide professional development in strategies and techniques for using EdTech in the Jewish classroom.
These webinars and workshops have included one-time PD sessions and semester-long and year-long seminars.
It was very informative and really opened my eyes to see how much technology can be used in a Judaic Studies classroom.
Exploring this methodology for me was exploring learning (and teaching) in the eye of the young generation. For me the process was in a way sort of a journey to students’ minds with in their life contexts.
The whole process of working with you contributed to me professionally, much more than I expected and I am thankful and exited to continue exploring this methodology.

It is an eye opener to what can be done in the class with the tablets.
