During the 2012 academic year, 18 member schools of the DigitalJLearning Network collaborated in documenting their successes, challenges, and promising practices in incorporating online and blended learning into their curricula. In 2013, we have increased in size to 34 fully participating schools! Working together through an ongoing community of practice, the DigitalJLearning Network schools are implementing online and blended learning solutions of various shapes and sizes that meet particular needs of their schools. Whether it's remediation/credit recovery, enrichment & AP courses, expanding course offerings to affording more flexible scheduling or individualizing instruction for all learners, DigitalJLearning Network schools are blazing new paths in Jewish Education.
Participation in the DigitalJLearning Network
DJLN schools receive grant assistance to advance the adoption and integration of online and blended courses. Additionally, each participating school receives expert assistance in the political, educational and technical aspects of adopting and integrating online and blended learning into their educational programs. This expertise includes participation in communities of practice, collaborative learning, opportunities to work with guest experts and the collection and dissemination of additional resources related for implementing online learning.
Issues related to the implementation of online learning in day schools and yeshivot are being carefully documented as we study and learn new ways to facilitate easier adoption by additional schools.
