ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 

  1. In 2010 I was invited to an international workshop at Bar Ilan University on "Technology as supporting literacy achievements for children at risk". The workshop was financed by ISF and was designated for invitees only from the USA, Europe and Israel (34 participants).
  2. A member of the COSPATIAL international research group, which won the European Union Grant: An integrative approach for designing collaborative technologies for social competence training in children with autism spectrum conditions. The group is comprised of researchers from Italy, the UK and Israel. The leader from Bar Ilan is Prof. Nirit Bauminger, and I serve as a researcher on behalf the university.
  3. I serve as a reviewer of national and international journals such as Computers & Education  British Journal of Educational Technology  Educational Technology and Society and others.
  4. I was a Research Fellow of the Chais Research Centre at the Open University of Israel.
