Russel Neiss

Jewish educator & technologist

Hello. I'm Russel Neiss, and I build creative Jewish educational experiences. Sometimes these take the form of interactive tools and apps, but I'm just as likely and competent at whipping something up without a lick of technology. I believe strongly in constructivist education, and I pride myself on creating space for learners to engage with their interests on their own terms. I'm skeptical of buzz-words and the propensity of the Jewish ed field to be drawn to the latest and shiniest fads, but that skepticism often drives me to challenge the status quo and consider alternative approaches and solutions.

I'm currently offering free Jewish educational technology consulting to help advance the field. Find out more.
