When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices, and demonstrate how these best practices can be applied in the real (i.e. physical) and virtual (i.e. online) classroom for both teaching and teacher training. The combination of face to face instruction in a physical setting and online learning is called blended learning. In this section of the blog we will describe how the internet can serve as a supplemental resource for instruction and the mentoring of pre-service and in-service Jewish educators. In this post we will begin our discussion of how ILovePDF, a web tool that enables the user to modify (e.g. split, combine, convert, etc.) PDF (Portable Document Format) files, can be used to promote Judaic instruction and to mentor/train pre-service and in-service Jewish educators.
