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.

In the 20th century, Jewish education focused on strengthening Jewish identity and ensuring Jewish continuity. That approach to Jewish education no longer works for today's learners. They want to know how Jewish teachings and practices can make their lives better and the world better. They want Jewish life to help them flourish as human beings, to help them be 'happy' in the fullest Jewish sense of that term. Drawing on insights of world-renowned behavioral psychologist Dan Ariely, and bringing his findings into dialogue with Jewish teaching and practice, the 2016 Jewish Futures Conference (December 14, 2016 – Columbia University, NYC) will explore the elements of and conditions for human happiness and well-being, and how Jewish education can be redirected to answer the aspirations of 21st century learners.
