I would like to share with you an exciting educational tool called Gemara Academy. Gemara Academy is a program that is meant to be used by teachers and/or students for teaching and learning gemara.
Gemara Academy utilizes technology to visually engage students with flowcharts, animations, and quizzes that transform the classroom. Instead of competing for a student’s attention, Gemara Academy takes advantage of technology to bring the gemara text to life.
