The Jewish Education Project is inviting teams of educators from Tri-State area middle and high schools to join us for a 3 day Summer Institute (August 14 -16, 2017). Through the Tech for Learning Initiative, supported by the Jim Joseph Foundation, school teams will work and learn together over several days in August. We will identify key challenges and opportunities that drive technology use, and the processes to implement educational technology that helps address them. We will also explore pedagogic approaches and theories behind integrating technology with learning. We’ll learn from each other and from leading experts in the field, and each team will create a plan for piloting new technology projects in their school. After completing the Summer Institute, schools will be eligible to submit applications for microgrants of up to $5,000 to help put their plans into action.

What’s NEXT in online professional development? Here are Gratz College’s NEXT program’s offerings for this summer! Supplementary school programs must hire teachers with a complex patchwork of backgrounds and skills while living with budgets that lack healthy line items for professional development for those teachers. The challenge is how to provide the range – and depth –of learning needed to efficiently enhance our teachers’ knowledge and skills. NEXT addresses the disparate levels of experience in Jewish knowledge and educational pedagogy. We have enjoyed creating partnerships with different programs, central agencies and federations.

We are delighted to invite you to participate in our introduction to Facing History and Ourselves' summer seminar, Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behavior for Educators in Jewish Settings. In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy.

The Mandel Teacher Educator Institute (MTEI) is a program that strengthens the Jewish community by developing educational leaders – “teachers of teachers” – who are spearheading powerful and innovative professional development experiences for their institutions and communities. We believe that ongoing, substantive professional development for educational leaders and teachers is central to revitalizing Jewish education. MTEI’s intensive two-year program that consists of six, 4-day seminars with assignments in the field between meetings is a building block toward this goal.
