Learning today happens anywhere and anytime. Jewish Day Schools must keep pace with our increasingly connected, global landscape in order to prepare our students for the future. Explore essential elements of Connected learning, an education framework and approach to learning that is interest-driven, socially connected and grounded in academics.  School administrators, professional development leaders and technology directors will consider how new media can be leveraged to support our students and faculty in relevant and accessible learning.
