Nic Abery is the creator and director of LooktoLearn, a museum educational experience that fuses Jewish and secular studies. With over 11 years of experience in school and museum education, Nic has written integrated curricula for Tzedek, United Synagogue and has trained teachers in the UK and abroad in her methodology. For the past two years, she has been developing and her new business, LooktoLearn. Nic’s extensive Jewish communal involvement includes frequently leading and attending lectures, tours and courses run by the London School of Jewish Studies and JCC, chairing a number of Jewish charity projects, and founding a new innovative minyan (prayer group) in London. Most recently, she sits on the steering committee for the 2011 Global Fellowship Programme by PresenTense, Israel. Additionally, she has presented, volunteered and participated at Limmud Conference and Limmud Fest over the last fourteen years, and often leads the very popular children’s service at Finchley Synagogue. LooktoLearn is an innovative project that uses innovative museum/gallery education techniques to fuse Jewish and secular education for children and families. It enhances the study of Jewish texts with museum art and artifacts by empowering learners to unlock their artistic and critical eye. By combining analytic textual study in the classroom with visual learning in museums and galleries Nic creates unique, broad and original multi-sensory learning experiences that if developed and widely implemented could enrich and revolutionize the entire Jewish School curriculum.
