Last year at the CAJE32 conference in St. Louis the Lippman Kanfer Institute convened a think tank of fantastic educators to think about the future of Jewish education. A strong theme throughout the 3 day sequence was technology, and in response, Jonathan Woocher and his incredible team have launched a new think tank called “JE3” (Jewish Education 3.0). The group has flexed its collective muscle to steer the conversation away from technology per se, and towards the implications of teaching and learning about Judaism in our current and rapidly evolving digital landscape.
The group hopes to publish a paper and many sub-papers on the topic in the coming year, and at CAJE 33 we invited additional voices to join the conversation and contribute to the wiki-based project. We strongly value the face-to-face discussion, and Monica Rozenfeld expertly captured the fruits of our labors and added them to the wiki. If you’d like to get involved in the project or want to learn more, contact Monica or visit the wiki, sign up and add your thoughts!
