Ji Summer HobNob with The Jewish Education Project
Jewish Interactive is offering a multi-session exploration of Ji Tools and the many different pedagogic and practical uses teachers may have as they prepare for fall 2020 and beyond. Each Ji HobNob (session) will last for 75 min and consists of an interactive presentation followed by an open discussion and brainstorming session concluding with a 2-hour hands-on workshop. This final workshop comes with a 2-week Ji Tap Pro login, to use, to explore Ji Tap and all of its interactive learning games.
Our 75-min sessions are priced at @ $18 each and our final 2-hour workshop is $36
Each session will be centered around a separate topic and Ji skill, making participating in all four sessions worthwhile, however, participants who choose to come to only one session will not feel lacking. We welcome you to sign up for the Ji Summer HobNob. We are capping each session at 20 participants to create an intimate environment, so please sign up and secure your spot.
Ji HobNob Session 1: Fall Planning: Ji Connecting Your Learning
In this session we will look at Ji Tools and how to blend them into distance and in-class learning, working to create consistency and empower students. We will look at possible fall 2020 planning and consider modes of Ji blended instruction that will empower teachers to approach teaching this fall with pedagogical and curricular tools.

Ji HobNob Session 2: Exploring Curricular Resources on Ji Tap
When in school, children are guided on a learning journey. How do we do this remotely or even provide the opportunity of a learning journey as homework or home learning? In this Ji HobNob we will be looking at using Ji Tap in conjunction with other educational communication platforms to curate a guided learning journey of our own. We will examine the Ji Bytes initiative as an example of curated learning journeys and break down the pedagogic pillars that create a successful and holistic student experience.

Ji HobNob Session 3: The Golden Opportunity of Distance learning.
Have you noticed that some students are thriving with distance learning? What is enabling them to succeed? What was giving them trouble in school before we moved to a remote teaching model? In this Ji HobNob we will discuss how to understand these students’ needs and discuss ways to give all students in multiple learning situations the tools to succeed.

Ji HobNob Session 4: Creating Active and Participatory Online Experiences
Using Ji Tools as a platform for hands-on and active learning creates a holistic, interdisciplinary experience for students.

When participating in this HobNob, please be prepared with an additional iPad with Ji Tap downloaded or practice splitting your computer screen so that you can participate in a hands-on exploration of the Ji Tap Creation Suite or Ji Studio (downloadable here). This session will be a 2 hour workshop working on creating Jewish interactive experiences for your students.
