Limor Ben-Ari Graduate
The decision to pursue a master's degree was clear to me. Fortunately, I received much more than I had expected from my studies. First, the teaching staff, under Prof. Gila Kurtz at the time and then passed to Dr. Gila Levy Atzmon, was led by a strong hand to be the best in the field. It was truly amazing. The inclusion, listening, empathy, and infinite patience they showed aren't to be taken for granted in academia. The study contents were always at the top, latest, and most relevant level, and that has contributed a lot to me in my various positions and continues to do so.
I Believe
Dr. Gila Levi-Azmon Head of the program
In our pedagogical concept, we believe that high-quality learning focuses on learners and strives to promote them while enriching the learning process and making it more meaningful. Such a concept requires openness and flexibility in the approach to teaching. For those who advocate such a concept, learning that integrates technologies offers a multitude of tools and opportunities. Therefore, the purpose of the program is to give our students pedagogical and technological understanding in order to improve teaching and learning through the integration of technologies.

Our Program Graduates Speak

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for educators with the skills and knowledge to handle learning in digital environments and distance learning became clear. These are now vital areas for anyone involved in teaching and learning. Today, we need innovative learning and teaching processes more than ever, with the flexibility to take place anywhere, anytime, and adapt to individual learners. Today, learning extends beyond school walls, taking place at home, in the community, and in other areas of life. This is made possible by the learning technologies that define today's digital learning environment. Our ICT and learning specialization program gives students the latest answers in terms of principles, strategies, planning, and application of learning and distance learning technologies in the field.
The degree is recognized for scholarships from the Teachers' Union/Teachers' Association/Kindergarteners' Association.
Graduates from the program will assume roles such as ICT leaders within educational institutions, trainers, innovators in developing advanced learning environments, ICT heads in municipal education departments, techno-pedagogical mentors, independent curriculum creators, lecturers, and practitioners in academic settings, among others.
