Abstract

The philosopher Walter Benjamin defined the difference between being a tourist in the city and wandering around the city. 
In this Webinar, we will learn to use a mobile platform called "thewandering" for indoor and outdoor location-based learning that is based on Benjamin’s ideas. By means of the platform, we will create a meaningful experiential activity in situ.
I will share with you my personal experiences, as well as those of my colleagues from Kenya, Spain, Austria, Italy, and Mexico, in using the platform. You will visit sites containing indoor activities that take place in schools and museums and outdoor experiences that occur in a botanical garden and parks. 
We will learn a variety of beneficial ways to teach and engage your public.

Everyone is welcome to join us!

Biography:

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 "Learning Based on Location – 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.
