Professional Background

I am an educator with experience as a teacher and administrator in both Israel and Canada. I served as a teacher in the Israeli cities of Bet Shemesh and Ma’alot, a northern town bordering with Lebanon. I also served as a Principal of a Jewish day school in Winnipeg, Canada.

I run educational connections between young Jews worldwide.

Our program, which is called "Israel Connect", facilitates a two-way, long-term and interpersonal connection between Jewish youth from around the world and their peers in Israel


I hold a teaching certificate and Bachelor of Education from Herzog College in Alon Shevut and a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from Loyola University in Chicago.

My Reflection

Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours

  • Great to see you in the tutorial, Amihai, and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials?--Phil Bartle 09:07, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Hi Phil, In my opinion, any materials added to an open content website, have to be monitored. Users will gain the respect of their peers dependant on their previous contributions. Atbannett 11:09, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
