Mrs. Tikvah Wiener outlines a PBL project design unit focusing on Tefillah. As many of our schools struggle with engagement and Tefilllah, Tikvah and her colleagues have outlined a new project putting the dilemma into the hands of the students for whom the dilemma is a reality. Problem-Based Learning, as its name suggests, asks students to solve a real-world problem. One thorny problem Jewish educators face is how to approach prayer — tefillah — in school. At the PBL Collaboratory in Judaic Studies that took place last month in late March, a group of us were inspired by RealSchooler Ronit Langer, who dropped by and spoke about the fact that tefillah in school seems more punitive than aspirational. We decided to tackle the topic during our project design session.

Four skills have been identified as critical for the twenty-first century – Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. The skills of creativity and critical thinking will equip students to deal with an ever-changing world. The skills of communication and collaboration both focus on the increasing need for interaction with others. This issue of the journal addresses challenges of twenty-first century learning. For many, when they hear of 21st century learning they immediately think of technology. That is understandable, but as Gary Hartstein writes in the opening article, the technology is nothing more than a tool – like a pencil or a whiteboard – and needs to be harnessed properly with educational thought to move education forward.

This year I had the opportunity to help create a project that made our study of mesechet Shabbat relevant and engaging and fun for kids! At Maimonides School, the study of Talmud is a very important value. It is so important that we dedicate more time to the study of gemarah than to any other course. And yet, unbelievably, a course that some parents and students have trouble really appreciating is Talmud! So the limudei kodesh team and I set out to try and create a project that would put the students in the center, as creators of knowledge, and not just as consumers of knowledge.
