WEBINAR: Using Data to Strengthen Your Camp

Please note: All events are on Eastern Standard Time.

Presented by Amy Sales, Associate Director, Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, Brandeis University

Audience: Overnight Camp Professionals

Data tell an important and useful story but only if we learn how to find, read, and interpret it. The more ways we look at the data, the richer the story. Using summer 2013 as our dataset, we will look at overnight camp data from three perspectives: JCC camps patterns in comparison with the rest of the field, longitudinal reports tracking your own camp’s trends over time, and comparison reports with reports from peer camps. With each view, we will look at the story and implications for your camp. Together we will consider how to share data with your camp leadership and use it to inform the strategic direction of the camp.

Hebrew Language through Graffiti with Guy Sharett

Description: Hebrew and the linguistic landscape in Florentin, Tel Aviv

Explore Southern Tel Aviv’s bohemian Neighborhood as we decipher the “writing on the walls” – street signs, textual graffiti, bumper stickers and manhole covers filled with Hebrew gems and insights into contemporary Israeli culture.

Guy Sharett is a linguist and former journalist. Following Semitic Linguistics studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, he pursued an MA in Southeast Asian Studies at the University of London. “I started learning Indonesian after reading the ingredients on a bottle of milk I found at the beach in Ashdod, Israel. Anything can be valid material for language learning, and in my tours I try to prove this to my students”, he says. Guy, who speaks seven languages, moved to the Florentin neighborhood of Tel Aviv in ‘06, and has been StreetWising since 2011.
