JSTEM: Connecting Jewish Values and 21st Century Thinking (LA-area Teachers)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is the technological revolution. An age where facts are abundant and readily available and anything you want is at your fingertips. Where science, technology, engineering, and math are the basis of innovation. This is the world in which our students live. Where does Judaism fit into their world, and how can we enrich both our students’ Jewish identities and their lives as a citizen of the 21st century? How do Judaism and STEM co-exist in our classrooms?

In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore the connections between Judaism and STEM education with the goal of furthering your journey as a Day School Educator. We’ll challenge you to look at the classroom differently and learn with your students.

Participants will discover how they can integrate Jewish values, science, engineering, technology and math within their classrooms through an interactive, exciting and engaging discussion and hands-on experience. Part of Teachers' Professional Development Day.
