Israeli NGO, Behrman House team for digital education technology

NEW YORK (JTA) — Israel’s Center for Educational Technology and Behrman House are teaming to create jLearningLabs, a developmental laboratory for educational technology for Jewish students.

jLearningLabs will be accessible from mobile apps and desktop applications to games and other software. The apps will be available to students and teachers to explore Jewish learning.

“jLearningLabs will create a new breed of digital content that brings Jewish language, culture, and real-time experiences to life for our educational community and beyond,” said David Behrman, the president of Behrman House, a publisher of textbooks and digital learning materials for U.S. Jewish schools.

Berhman House and CET, an Israeli nongovernmental organization, began their partnership in 2012.
