WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INFLUENCE ON CHILD DEVELOPMENT Tom Weisner | TEDxUCLA 2016 (8.41) If you could do one thing - the most important thing - to influence the life of a young child, what would that be (it’s likely not what you first bring to mind)? We want to improve the wellbeing of children - our own, in our community, and in the world, so thinking globally about this question is vital.

THE JEWISH EDUCATION PROJECT PRESENTS THE HIGH FIVE: JEWISH LEARNING THAT NURTURES THE WHOLE PERSON jesnadotorg 2011 (22.49)
century learner In our rapidly changing world, Jewish education cannot happen only in a classroom. Just fostering knowledge or good experiences is not enough. Leading experts in Jewish education and identity development tell us that the goal of Jewish education is to nurture the whole person.
In this film, Dr. Jeffrey Kress (The Jewish Theological Seminary), Dr. Bethamie Horowitz (New York University) and Dr. David bryfman (The Jewish Education Project), describe the five things-- The High Five-- that Jewish educators can do to fully nurture their learners and make a difference in their lives. Examples from the work of The Coalition of Innovating Congregations, a group of leading New York congregations, show us how the theory is turned into reality.
The high Five is sure to be a fire starter for the imagination of today's educational leaders!

SYMBIOSIS: JEWISH EDUCATION AND THE LEARNING SCIENCES Dr. Sam Abramovich ELI Talks 2015(10.47)
Jewish communities have developed time-tested approaches to education. A modern field of study called the learning sciences brings new light to the way people learn. In this elucidating talk, Sam Abramovich shares with us the unexpected points of connection between these two approaches, and how their full symbiosis can be of benefit to both.
This talk was produced in partnership with Sinai and Synapses (http://sinaiandsynapses.org/), with additional support from Clal (http://www.clal.org/) and The John Templeton Foundation (http://templeton.org/).
BETWEEN THE LINES - A DOCUMENTARY ON ISRAEL EDUCATION Alixandra Kriegsman 2015 (28.23) Visit bwthelines.com for more information.
Between The Lines offers a deep-dive into how Jewish Day Schools teach Israel's controversial narrative, and the students who emerge with quivering loyalty toward their community and the State. We explore the scope of content offered on Israel's history and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in various Jewish Day schools across the country.
How do you sufficiently explore the Palestinian narrative in the context of a Jewish Day School, which has an obvious (and understandable) agenda of connecting young Jews to the State? What happens to now-college students who feel they were miseducated, undereducated, or too distracted to care at the time? We focus a critical eye on the responsibilities schools have to their pupils, especially when it comes to educating material that defines and shapes not only intellectual but religious identity - when it comes to teaching about a country that intrigues not only our insular community, but the world at large.
