Talila Yehiel graduated from the Ceramic Design Department at Bezalel Academy of Art. She also holds a Master’s degree from the History of Art Department at Tel Aviv University. She has extensive experience in teaching pupils at all levels as well as in mentoring teachers.
Her academic background, which integrates the material world, the creative process, and the world of research, furnishes her with tools that afford profound insight and a rich diversity of working strategies.
Ms Yehiel has been involved in the creation of special tailor-made sites for museum visits, a project called “Location Based Learning – thewandering”. She has tried it out on various groups of students and adults. Wandering around an exhibition hall by means of this site gets people involved and encourages them to interact with the exhibits.
Ms Yehiel has used her mobile platform all over the country with science teachers and high-school English teachers as well as with students, and has taught them how to create their own “thewandering” sites. She presented in ecsite ( European Science Museum Conferences 2015 and 2016), and conducted a workshop in Unesco Mobile Learning Week.
Her speaking engagements include technology for instruction and learning, collaborative learning, mindfulness, self-compassion, and authenticity. She organizes MOOCs, free online conferences, webinars, and courses for educators worldwide. She has been teaching English as a Foreign Language in high school and higher education for 35 years.
