Youth are no longer learning in schools the skills they require to compete and succeed in the classrooms, workplaces, and town halls of the 21st century. Expectations are being shattered about what learning is supposed to look like, when it should happen and where. As learning becomes 24/7, ubiquitous, and lifelong, it is turning the traditional academic environment into simply one node within a broader learning network traversed by its students.
Encouraging and embracing technological innovation is central to learning, productivity, collaboration, and communication in our modern world. From school websites and Twitter accounts for Judaic directors, to classroom tablets and mobile alerts for parents, 21st century Jewish day schools rely on the integration of technology at all levels to enhance education practices and further the accessibility of the resources they offer.
