Dr. Gil Graff recently posted an essay demonstrating the profound change Jewish Experiential Education methodology has made upon the broader field of Jewish education.  As a committed proponent of this learner-centered methodology, I commend his well-written piece and agree with his conclusion that 

[t]he shift from school-like classrooms to learner-focused experiences – in class and beyond – is the real breakthrough in Jewish education. It is a breakthrough that portends well for Jewish learning and living. “And you shall teach your children diligently” is not about a particular setting or instructional program: it is about connecting with the hearts and minds of successive generations. 

It is worth a read.
