On May 1, 2013 over 50 teachers from 24 Schools and 7 organizations in the UK attended the Naomi Prawer Kadar: Digital Technology Conference for Primary Jewish Studies Teachers in London. The conference was co-sponsored by World ORT and Jewish Interactive UK.


There was a warm, positive atmosphere as teachers from a wide spectrum of schools came together to network and discussed the use of technology in Jewish Education. Sessions covered topics relating to the use of ICT in the classroom, and were mainly presented by practicing teachers with expertise in their areas, including:

  • How to make the most out of your SMART Board
  • Using Twitter in Schools
  • Prezi vs PowerPoint
  • Why you should blog
  • Screencasting

A live link-up with keynote speaker Jon Mitzmacher, principal of Martin J Gottlieb Day School in Florida was a source of inspiration to all who watched him present on how he has implemented the use of iPads, blogging and QR codes in his school to great effect.
