Yehuda Chanales commented on Richard D Solomon, PhD's blog post Knowmia Teach and Apple/Mac App for the Flipped Classroom
"I have seen the app and think, like any screencasting app, it can be used in Judaic stuides to prepare psukim, meforshim, gemara etc. for students to listen to the teacher at their own pace. These can be used as a resource within the class or at…"

Rafi Cashman replied to Yehuda Chanales's discussion HSchinuch Resource of the Week: Skills Rubric for Gemara
"Hi, A wonderful document! Very helpful in breaking down the parts of a class-learning process. Working from Maccabee's comment, I think this may be more of a checklist than a rubric.  The difference being that a rubric allows a student…"

Allan Houben replied to Yehuda Chanales's discussion Does technology make Torah learning more or less authentic?
"While I do believe there is something to seeing a text in its original form (and thus have an affinity for maarei mekomot that were copied and pasted as opposed to printed off bar-ilan or hebrew books), that doesn't discount the use of…"

Edtech in Shiur #3: Extending Learning Beyond the Classroom with Podcasts and Vodcasts

When I originally learned about podcasts and vodcasts, the ability to syndicate consistent "episodes" of recorded audio or video files to subscribed listeners, I thought that this tool would not be particularly valuable in the high school context. While the use of audio or video recordings may be valuable (see my later post on visuals in the classroom), why would students subscribe to a your "cast" when you are meeting with them on a regular basis in the classroom and links or files can…

Edtech in Shiur #2: Twitter in the Judaic Studies (or any other) Class

While many have blogged already on this site about the power of twitter for teachers’ professional development and networking, I would like to share some ways in which twitter can serve as a powerful tool to use in the classroom and some of my concerns in encouraging its use.

(1) Formative Assessment:

Twitter is a great tool for formative assessment in class- asking students to pose questions or respond to them. By attaching a hashtag for the class, everyone can see each…

Why make time for blogs?

Over the past few years, I've always thought of blogs as places where people, able to guise themselves in anonymity, post cynical and critical comments about whatever comes to their mind. Why would I want to get involved in that, let alone encourage my students to do so? Nevertheless, through my involvement in this site, reading numerous blog posts and starting to blog on my own, I have discovered that blogging provides a powerful platform for our own learning as…

Innovation and Authenticity: Reflections on NAJDSC and the Future of Yeshiva High School Education

This past week, I had the privilege of joining over 600 educators from across the denominational spectrum at the North American Jewish Day School Conference in Atlanta. Most of the sessions I attended (considering I am not involved in financial sustainability and governance at all) focused on innovative ideas that are not just "cool" tools to use but are new ways of thinking about how classes and schools are structured. From completely online education to…
