Digital Technologies in Jewish Education Seminars

The final seminar in this series, established in 2007 as the Terry and Jean De Gunzburg Seminars for Digital Technologies in Jewish Education, took place in St Petersburg at the end of June 2015. The 20 delegates represented ORT’s schools across the former Soviet Union (from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, plus Bulgaria). The four-day seminar provided Jewish educators with training on the effective use of new technologies for teaching and learning through a series of masterclasses, lectures and workshops. Educators were also given opportunities to broaden their knowledge of Jewish culture and history and relate this to the story of ORT through visits to archives, museums and other places of cultural significance.
