Thank you for contributing to and following this blog over the last three years. Many of you have completed exciting projects that you took beyond the parameters of the original funding. As we wind down AVI CHAI’s funding of classroom based experiments, we are proud of the work you have done and shared.
AVI CHAI will continue to fund initiatives in the area of educational technology and we will be using this blog for new purposes within that field. Most immediately, we are sponsoring 10 people to attend the Games for Change conference at the end of June in New York City. We are pleased to support an inaugural cohort that will begin to think about the implications of gaming for Jewish education. Each of the attendees will be posting at least twice on this blog.
A week later we are funding 10 day school leaders to attend the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference in Philadelphia and will ask those participants to blog and share their learnings with the field. AVI CHAI staff may also post about technology innovations.
We hope you will follow, learn and comment so we can continue learning together about the many ways to integrate technology into day schools. Previous contributors are invited to continue to blog and comment (we are not withdrawing your posting rights).
You can also join the conversation on Twitter by following the #jed21 hashtag. (If you don’t know what that is, find out!)
