Yisroel Porath, Director of Education
The world of online education is growing and so is TG. Over the last few months TG has been reborn through many hours of hard work by a dedicated TG team invested in building up a top quality educational offering for schools around the world.
This is just the beginning of an educational journey and we’re excited to share with you our most recent developments –
New Website – We have recently launched our new and improved TG website. This is just the first stage of our launch and in the coming weeks and months we will be adding additional features and interactive content so we can be your primary resource for all of your online educational needs! In the meantime, check us out at: www.tomorrowsgenius.com
Teacher Development –In TG we take great pride in our teachers! Our teachers are the backbone of all of TG’s programs and successes and it’s through our teachers that we are able to continue to provide top-notch educational programs for schools across the US. We have recently started a process of preparing our teachers for the upcoming school year with our first live meeting held in Jerusalem in mid-June. David Feller, TG’s director of professional services, delivered a session on “Backwards Design” which introduced TG’s new methodology in online learning. Stay tuned for David’s upcoming piece on “Backwards Design” and how this has influenced TG’s instructional practices.
Online Hebrew language instruction curriculum – We have spent many hours this past year in teaching Hebrew as a second language. As the school year came to an end we decided to develop a curriculum that would incorporate a high level of student engagement combined with consistent methods of assessment and learning benchmarks throughout the educational process. One of TG’s top Hebrew educators, Rabbi Nir Menashe, has taken the lead in mapping out 4 levels of Hebrew instruction from beginners to advanced and we’re excitedly looking forward to implementing this curriculum with our partner schools in the fall.
Ez2bgenius – TG has started to break ground in the world of asynchronous learning. Together with our partners from the JETS Israel team we are in the process of developing a three part module course focusing on the “Altalena” incident in 1948. The modules will combine various elements of interactive content engaging the students in a self-paced learning program. This course can be used in a variety of settings from a typical History course to a critical decisions course. We are looking forward to launching this in the fall…stay tuned!
Specialized Programs –TG has recently launched two unique programs – One on one tutoring and pre-set classes in Hebrew and Math. The goal of these specialized programs is to enable parents and schools to further differentiate the learning opportunities for their children/students. Both programs will be staffed by excellent educators who have extensive experience in working in small group settings. The one on one tutoring will enable maximum flexibility in scheduling and will work in tandem with the student’s academic schedule. The pre-set classes will be running over the course of a semester for two sessions a week during school hours. The following is the schedule for pre-set classes in Hebrew and Math:
|Math||Middle Grades||Monday/Wednesday 2:00pm – 3:00pm EST||Sep 4, 2013 –Jan 15, 2014|
|Math||Pre-Algebra||Tuesday/Thursday 2:00pm – 3:00pm EST||Sep 3, 2013 –Jan 14, 2014|
|Math||Algebra||Monday/Wednesday 3:00pm – 4:00pm EST||Sep 4, 2013 –Jan 15, 2014|
