Event description
Learn how to use Ji Tap, a platform with over 6,000 Jewish educational games and interactive lessons.

About this Event

Join us for an introductory workshop on how to create games and interactive activities using Ji Tap. Ji Tap is a platform holding over 6,000 Jewish educational games and interactive lessons. Ji Tap also comes with a creation tool to build your own games and share them with the world. With a comprehensive learning management system, teachers can see the games their students create, assign games and view and use data for the class as a whole and for each child. Each question a student answers is tracked. Teaching, flipped classrooms, differentiation, and assessments become more engaging. In this workshop we will learn to use the Ji Tap creation tool to take our lessons and turn them into interactive activities. We will talk about gamifying our curriculum and integrating game creation into our weekly routine. This workshop will teach hands-on skills and focus on the pedagogy behind implementing successfully in the classroom for K-8 teachers.
