National Library of Israel Education Department Website
The National Library is invested in facilitating and advancing a meaningful, challenging and enjoyable learning experience that will instill students with knowledge and skills based on the study of the Library's collections, among others – an experience that will strengthen teachers, students, families and educational organizations. Our pedagogic philosophy is that the intelligent use of primary sources allows for the reinforcement and deepening of the connection between the students and their history, culture and heritage, and strengthens the skills and qualifications required for the 21st century student. The Library works to implement its educational goals via a number of significant actions – the establishment of a database of primary documents for teaching and learning, providing access to tools and activities, training teaching staff and educators and the establishment of informal educational programming for families and schools.
The Summer Meeting of the MOFET International Forum of Teachers of Hebrew as an Additional Language
Two days have passed since the summer meeting of the MOFET International Forum of Teachers of Hebrew as an Additional Language was held, and I am still excited about it. We met members from all over the world – people whom we usually only encounter 'virtually' via the Internet website. It was very interesting and enjoyable to meet them face to face. The session took place as a learning encounter that included two artistic interludes. At this meeting, the emphasis was placed on learning difficulties and ways of resolving them.
Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), Wisest of Men: Paradigm of the Teacher-Researcher
Rabbi Prof. Neria Guttel – President, “Orot Israel” Academic College of Education, shares his reflections on the desired relationship between the eminent teacher and the educational researcher. He examines the words of Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), and the interpretations of traditional commentators in formulating his own view of the paradigm of the Teacher-Researcher.
'I'm Coming Clean' - An Experimental High Holiday Learning Format
'I'm Coming Clean' is an experimental High Holiday learning format created by the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland's Curriculum Department with the goal of creating a stronger bridge between Jewish educational programs and the homes of children in grades 4-7. Part of the website is specifically geared to children ('What's Hiding Under Your Bed?' and 'Practice') and part of the site brings a big idea from the holiday season to parents ('For Parents').
