PISCATAWAY, NJ [CHI] — The annual Women’s Chinuch Kinus closed yesterday as conferees boarded busses, airport shuttles, and their cars to resume their regular summer schedules. From California and Washington in the west to Florida and the Carolinas in the south east to Minnesota and Toronto in the north they converged upon the Radisson hotel in Piscataway NJ for 48 hours of pure Chinuch. And they left tiered but smiling.
The dual themes at this year’s were “The Power of Words” and “Educational technology” and its educational imperative as tool to reach all students. The first overreaching topic was addressed by an eclectic group of outstanding educational professionals on issues such as: how to promote sensitive speech, teaching thoughtful speech and hoe to facilitate better communication. Teachers and principals also learned of the advantages and opportunities presented by “Smart Board technology” and other state of the art educational tools.
Many other issues were addressed, debated and discussed into the wee hour of the night. Monday night at 2:00 am there was a lively discussion still underway.
The annual conference, a project of the Merkos Chinuch Office and this year the early childhood section was cosponsored by the ECEC group of the Shluchim Office, as well as the new Machne Israel Development Fund, Early Childhood Initiative.
