Last week a project that I have been working on for the last few months went live - The MOFET JTEC Portal
- a professional content portal for all those involved in Jewish education in Israel and the Diaspora.
The MOFET JTEC Portal is a user-friendly database which contains abstracts and links to academic articles, online learning resources, conferences, professional development activities, news articles and more categorized by topic, keywords, authors with an advanced search and browse interface.
The objective of the international JTEC content portal in Jewish education is to improve the flow of pedagogical knowledge and research in Jewish education by helping teacher educators, teachers, researchers, and other stakeholders keep abreast of the wealth of publications in the field.
MOFET JTEC is an initiative of MOFET Institute - which operates alongside Israeli colleges of education and has as its objective to serve as an intercollegiate professional meeting-place for teacher educators.
The MOFET JTEC Portal joins The MOFET ITEC Portal
– (International Portal of Teacher Education) which aims to improve the flow of pedagogical knowledge and research on teacher education.
The abstracts of the latest and newest papers and research studies published in the world's leading journals in the field of teacher education (such as Journal of Teacher Education and Teaching and Teacher Education) and major education conferences (such as EARLI and AERA) are collected in one database in the International Content Portal.
A survey of the material is conducted systematically and the selected items undergo processing and adaptation to a uniform online platform in accordance with defined categories and key words.
The Classroom 2.0 community is invited to the visit the new portals and avail themselves of their offerings.
