Bringing the M² dialect to the language of Jewish experiential education
As the son of a Jewish summer camp director, Mars grew up immersed in experiential education from a young age. Because of his father’s job, Mars was able to see informal education’s “behind-the-scenes” work. While it looked like fun and games to the campers, he saw his father utilizing established educational methodologies and putting them into practice.
Over the years, Mars has found that Judaism is uniquely adapted to support informal learning with its emphasis on community.
