Museums, botanical gardens and zoos are the repositories of our cultural heritage. Teachers at all levels of education and in all disciplines, as well as museum professionals, can use these locations to teach scientific, historic, humanistic and artistic concepts and themes with authentic objects. In this Webinar to be held online on September 15, 2019 at 9 PM IST, Ms Talila Yehiel will explain the technology that can enable you to establish your interactive experimental learning maps. You will learn the pedagogical and technological tools that will activate your students.

The supportive platform for this method of teaching and learning is the “Wandering” technology, which was awarded by UNESCO as the best mobile learning method. You will be able to evaluate your students’ results as an integral part of the technology acquired during the course.

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 – the wandering". 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 "the wandering" sites. She presented in ecsite European Science Museum Conferences 2015 and 2016, and conducted a workshop in Unesco Mobile Learning Week.
