Jewish Education in the Age of Google

By Jonathan S. Woocher

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), May 15, 2006

The author describes the new environment for Jewish education created by global telecomunications, the internet, wireless technologies, and on-demand media. Among his observations intended to help Jewish educators adapt to the web-enhanced world: information is now easy to access, though not necessarily to assess; "customers" expect to be able to get what they want, when they want it, and at a good price; learning is a multisensory, multidimensional experience; virtual connections can be readily formed across boundaries; and good platforms can be even more powerful than good programs.
