My project to create Jewish History PowerPoint lessons began to bear fruit this past week. I was able to put together a PPT on a JH topic(the Dead Sea Scrolls) with sound, video clips and links to the web. This, I believe adds a certain dynamic component to PPT as a teaching tool. There were a few difficulties and technical glitches but I was able to get it working. The clips I took from the COJS (Center of Online Jewish Studies) website (which is worth checking out- www.cojs.com). I also attended their workshop this week at NYU and they are really doing some great work.
I will continue on my next piece and report my progress as it happens, with G-d's help.
I welcome comments, suggestions and questions. Shabbat Shalom.
