21st Century Learning (12:2 spring 2014)
With the ease of instantaneous access to knowledge and the rapidly changing world, preparing students in the 21st century involves more of teaching students adaptability and tools than it does teaching them information. This issue focuses on 21st century Jewish learning, considering questions such as:
- Is our relationship to text changing, and how is that affecting Jewish learning and teaching?
- How do we incorporate elements such as collaboration, risk-taking, innovation into Jewish studies?
- What are the benefits of distance learning, blended learning, and other technology-assisted modalities?
- How do we teach our students to be discerning in an era of information overload?
