Behrman House has Tomorrow’s Digital Resources You Can Use Today
You want easy-to-use digital and web-related resources that will help you engage students and their families, motivate your teachers, and keep you up to date with the latest in Jewish education. Behrman House’s online tools help you do all that—and more.
Here is our Top-10 list of tech resources you can use right now (with a bonus!) :
Help parents practice the alef bet and review prayers and blessings with their children by sending them a link to our no hassle, online Click and Read Hebrew or Click and Learn Prayer. Its unique features include fully embedded audio that provides immediate feedback by letter, by word, by line with just a click of the mouse. And it’s FREE.
Send experiential holiday learning home. A quick email link to www.ElijahRocks.net will provide your 2nd and 3rd grade families with online games and holiday songs, and help them learn the blessings. This inviting web site is a companion to The Jewish Holiday Treasure Trail, our newest holiday book.
Families and students across the country were learning the four questions on their iPhones at Passover this year, thanks to iMahNishtanah, a Behrman House app. You can keep them engaged using the technology they love with iShma, also from Behrman House, and available at the Apple Apps store.
Share lesson plans, tell student—and family!—success stories, let colleagues know which materials work and why, and ask for guidance from others all through the Behrman House Educators’ Forum.
All Behrman House digital Hebrew programs (Shalom Uvrachah, Hineni, Alef Bet Quest, and Kol Yisrael) come with easy-to-use online assessment features. Get immediate feedback online, or have students use the option to print their assessment pages and bring them to class. Just click the blue Assessment button on our homepage. Students can even email their results directly to their teacher’s Inbox.
Not sure how to begin a digital Hebrew program in your school? Our online video tutorial and our nine-minute webinar will take you step-by-step into the digital age and show you how to use the Alef Bet Quest primer and the Kol Yisrael prayer program.
