This webinar will discuss the way in which technology can be used to enhance “Location Based Learning” activities.
The moderator, Ms Talila Yehiel, will share her experience as a visiting lecturer at UPAEP University in Puebla, Mexico, where students and professors from the language, engineering, and medicine departments created experimental activities around their campus and the city. The technology they employed supported their authentic way of learning.
During the webinar, participants will take part in a “Location Based Learning” activity. They will be able to experience the benefits that can be gained as a teacher, a scientist, a museum curator, and a heritage site educator.
On the Wandering platform, you and your students will be able to create original games as well as routes around your school, museum, or town.
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.
