Jedcamp South Florida
An inspirational morning!
What do you get when you have a committed group of volunteers, a welcoming Jewish Day School, and motivated educators across our sunny region?
JEDcamp South Florida!
Just about 50 educators from across 3 counties in the South Florida area gave up their Sunday morning in the hopes of being inspired by other educators with similar goals. Whether you are a teacher or just passionate about teaching, there was something to learn and share at JEDcamp South Florida this past Sunday.
The JEDcamp phenomena, based on edcamps, began in our area two years ago, and we were all proud to be able to continue the learning with our 3rd event. It’s an informal opportunity for Jewish educators to gather and discuss what they do and how to do it better. JEDcampSoFl is a morning worth of valuable interaction and learning with your professional peers from Jewish Day Schools from all over South Florida and beyond. This year, Brauser Maimonides Academy graciously hosted JEDcamp South Florida. Their facility was just right and lunch was even better!
JEDcamp focused on conversation and participation. At the beginning of the event, the session board began to be filled up with educators who wanted to discuss issues facing their schools and classrooms as well as ideas to inspire others.
Examples of our session titles included:
Achieving Data Literacy
Ivrit - Hebrew
Judaic Tech Tools
Should Teachers and Students be Friends?
Bridging the Gap Between Educators and Parents
Center Based Learning and Assessment
Inquiry Based Learning
Chumash and Assessments in the Tech Age
Creative, Bright and ADD/ADHD
