Digital Technology Conference for Primary Jewish Studies Teachers

Digital Technology Conference 006 - Come on in

On Wednesday 1st May 2013 Jewish Interactive presented at the Naomi Prawer Kadar: Digital Technology Conference for Primary Jewish Studies Teachers.  Jewish Interactive UK co-organised the event with World ORT.

About the conference

There were over 50 attendees from 24 Schools and 7 organisations in the 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 :

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.

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive with teachers saying:

This is the best conference I have ever been to. I’ve learned so much.  More please!

and

Jewish Interactive is such a positive initiative. There is a real need to make sure the Kodesh lessons remain relevant and interactive in this age of technological. The children react so well to ICT and it truly brings the learning to life. Therefore it’s so important and valuable to have these well organized, informative and practical conferences. It’s also great to have the resources made by Jewish Interactive available; they are a huge support and help.

Feedback

Read some of the feedback we have received from attendees:

It was very exciting, beautifully organised and very informative……I am just off to tweet, blog, make a PowerPoint and email my line manager to say how much I enjoyed it.  The food was also great! 

This was an excellent conference. It was extremely well organized with a variety of topics and speakers. I feel that I learnt a lot from the different courses that I was able to attend. I always find the courses run by Jewish Interactive very interesting and helpful. I would like to particularly comment on how relevant and practical the courses were. I have no doubt that I will be using many of the ideas discussed today in my teaching.

Very inspirational. High quality speakers. Comfortable, professional environment conducive to making the most out of sessions. Informative.

The day was full of amazing people, thank you so much for everything. Too much to pick one thing I liked – mazal tov everyone!

It was a well organised conference, the presenters and attendees were all friendly and enthusiastic about all that was going on. Well done and thank you

Thank you for organising such a magnificent conference and for the hours upon hours you spent in order to make it a success.

I just want to congratulate you and all those involved on what was a wonderful conference.

Things only run so smoothly when people behind the scenes have been living and breathing (and probably not eating or sleeping) the event for a long time prior to it.

Well done, and thank you.
