Check out our amazing teachers getting ready for the 2020-2021 Virtual Fall Session!

Dr. Jared Matas spent three Sunday mornings with our teachers, where we practiced creating interactive learning activities to foster engagement. Beside practicing using Zoom, teachers were introduced to online tools such as Flipgrid, G-Suite, Quizizz, Quizlet, Kahoot!, “ScreenPlay”, and virtual WhiteBoards. While it is important to provide multiple means of online learning, Jared stressed the importance of relationships and community-building over all else. Jared recently led the transition of a k-8 ‘brick and mortar’ school in Massachusetts to an online model. Moreover, he has served as an adjunct professor at a number of universities, teaching courses such as “Early Childhood Education” at Tufts University, “Teaching Tefillah” at Hebrew College, and “Teaching Hebrew with Technology” at Middlebury College. Additionally, Jared has worked as a consultant for a number of synagogues, leading efforts to innovate supplementary schools with project-based learning and STEAM integration. We look forward to continuing our work with Jared as a consultant to our faculty this year.
