History

 

 

 

iTaLAM is a new digital blended learning environment based on the successful TaL AM program, a Hebrew language and Jewish heritage curriculum. iTaLAM is re-inventing the world of Hebrew language and Jewish heritage education by transforming the well-established and highly successful TaL AM print program into an engaging, interactive, personalized, and adaptive digital experience.

 

 

Just like TaL AM, iTaLAM is a cross-denominational curriculum, appropriate to be used across a wide spectrum of Jewish approaches, thus meeting the needs of the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox communities all at once. Indeed, one of the missions of iTaLAM is to become a bridge between the various approaches in Jewish education and to create a unified language that makes room for multiple unique voices.

iTaLAM is a new digital blended learning environment based on the successful TaL AM program, a Hebrew language and Jewish heritage curriculum.


Philosophy

iTaLAM is committed to enriching the realm of Jewish education in the Hebrew language using the latest educational technologies and modern teaching methods. We seek to inspire future generations of Jewish children to develop their Jewish identity while expressing their own unique voices.


Methodology

iTaLAM transforms TaL AM into an innovative digital program of blended learning for schools and home education. iTaLAM is committed to Zionist-Jewish learning in Hebrew, and offers Jewish children an opportunity to become acquainted and learn about their heritage, and to develop their Jewish identity in a unifying and distinctive language.

Songs: The TaL AM songs are presented with animation and illustrative pictures; the lyrics are displayed with the soundtrack and the words are highlighted to help the pupils follow them.

Books: The guided books and printed library books appear as digital books in a number of formats: books with full animation, riddle books, search-books and books based on the printed books and accompanied by narration and sound effects, together with highlighted text.

Educational videos: Animated videos that convey content, such as holiday customs, information on a subject or a language skill.
Comprehension activities, internationalization and examination:
A wide range of closed activities that the system grades, including multiple-choice questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, matching the text to the picture, highlighting and coloring text, finishing pictures, and more.

Open activities that the teacher grades, including recording the pupil’s answers and writing an answer on the iTaLAM keyboard.

Games: Learning games, including content and language skills that enable pupils to review and gain a deeper understanding of the learning material in an experiential and challenging way. This year, ten types of games were developed and launched, and appeared in different content.

Creative tools: Enabling the pupils to individually record a song or narration of a book,
to create greetings based on a book, or to create a personal project summarizing the learning. The work is saved in the pupil’s personal environment, accumulating throughout the year.
