Soure: AVI CHAI Blog
AVI CHAI awarded scholarships to ten Jewish day school administrators for this year’s ISTE conference, took place from June 23-26 in San Antonio, Texas. Taking on the ISTE tagline, “Connected Learning. Connected World,” some of these AVI CHAI sponsored attendees have shared noteworthy conference take-aways and musings on the AVI CHAI Ed Tech Blog.
Here are a few:
- Embody Principles of Technology Integration: What impressed Chaya Goldberg of Ramaz most was not any one-off keynote or tool, but rather the way the conference itself embodied principles of educational technology.
- Pedagogy Over Products: Jared Matas of the Jewish Community Day School of Boston discusses a session by fifth-grade teacher Julie Ramsay, who offers two approaches to the integration of technology into the classroom.
- Play Hard, Fail Fast, and Keep Going: Dr. Eliezer Jones, Educational Technology Specialist at YU Institute for University-School Partnership, who facilitated a group reflections session amongst the AVI CHAI Sponsored participants, shares his thoughts on gamification and its potential for impact in the classroom.
- Cohort Connections: Michael Bitton of the Magen David Yeshivah High School comments on the importance of the experience of a cohort of day school educators at ISTE. Tali Ben-Senior of The Epstein School also summarizes the ISTE opportunity as one where she could “network, learn and collaborate.”
- All About Relationships: Michelle Andron of the Emek Hebrew Academy discusses the “Connected Learning” ISTE theme in the context of the importance of connecting.
