Once again, this issue of HaYidion will be one you will want to keep. Within it are cutting-edge articles discussing the very latest in technology-related topics. Not only does this issue inform you about methodologies, resources, practices and opportunities, but it also provides a moral and Jewish context in which to consider and evaluate the opportunities, challenges and risks that 21st century technology offers the Jewish educational world.
This issue is itself reflective of traditional Jewish learning. There are articles that posit a theme and emphasize its merits. But turn the page and you will find another article, equally compelling, that stresses the obverse. So an in-depth reading of HaYidion will prove a compelling reinforcement of the very best educational practices that we seek in Jewish community day schools, to impart to our students: the ability to examine a topic in depth, from multiple perspectives, with a view to the past as well as the future.
I know that you will find these articles compelling, intriguing, and very useful. They raise many questions, provide many answers and challenge you to find the very best way to put technology to use in fulfilling your school’s educational mission.
