About this Event

Mercava is a robust, yet simple-to-use digital learning platform for Jewish day schools and congregational schools. It features over a thousand interactive books, endless layers of content, skill-building tools, and an ever-growing “Jewish App Store”. Mercava enables teachers and students to visualize, analyze, and understand Torah, as well as ask questions, engage in discussions, deliver assignments, take assessments, write notes, and create layers of content on any subject, including Tanach, Mishnah, Gemara, Tefilla, Ethics, Philosophy and more. With Mercava, students and teachers can create illustrations, photos, videos, 3D models, maps, 3D walkthroughs, Google Docs, quizzes, and flowcharts. New content is guided by teacher and student demand and is growing to include vocab cards, storyboards, charts, and concept cards.

Join us for a workshop on using Mercava in the classroom to see how it can help you engage your students and make their text learning deeper and more meaningful.
