Interesting Ways to use Technology for Mishna and Gemara in the Classroom

I am preparing two courses in the fall on using technology to enhance Jewish Studies. The first is a senior elective in my school called Torah Tech which I have blogged about here. The second, is a new online class for teachers on using technology to teach Mishna and Gemara which I am developing for The MOFET Institute Online Academy for Jewish Studies. I need your help.

I plan to include many real-world examples of the use of technology in Mishna and Gemara instruction on the middle and high school levels. To accomplish this, I am taking a tip from Tom Barrett's famous Interesting Ways series to crowdsource good quality classroom ideas on the use of technology for Mishna and Gemara in the classroom. Below is a Google Docs Presentation that I started on Interesting Ways* to use Technology for Mishna and Gemara in the Classroom. I added the first idea but I invite you to add your own so this becomes a truly collaborative experience which should greatly benefit the knowledge base of Jewish education.

You can contribute to this presentation by using the following link which allows editing: Interesting Ways* to use Technology for Mishna and Gemara in the Classroom and adding a new slide for each of your ideas. The only thing that I ask is that you include your name and/or Twitter handle to your slide and that you publicize this project on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and other social media. Yeshar Kochachem!
