Using technology made by Apple, SHMAIS.com has learned that a shliach in Florida makes the difficult business of acquiring Chumash skills sweet as honey.
"All teachers, most students, and many parents are aware of how difficult it is to acquire the fundamental skills for learning chumash, but iPads can do alot of the heavy lifting, in a way that students really enjoy', says Rabbi Rafi Rosenberg, a shliach in Skylake as well as a teacher for more than 20 years. He saw the iPad as an engaging and personal way to learn but couldn't find any programs that took advantage of its strengths for Torah learning. So after experimenting with the technology in his own classrooms for the past two years he has developed the first of a number of products he hopes will help parents, students and teachers, using 1to1 technology for Torah education.
"I believe that 1to1 technology, and especially on iPads, can really be a game changer for a lot of students, and teachers, and I really hope to have a lot of competition soon from others who agree", said Rafi.
