Alona Forkosh Baruch
academia in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Faculty member & researcher @ Levinsky College of Education; lecturer & researcher @ Tel-Aviv University & Haifa University. My research interests are Technology and ICT implementation in formal and informal education, ICT implementation in teacher education, Innovative Pedagogical Practices using ICT, Internet Implementation in Education, K-12 Web-Based Learning Environments, and recently Social Network Sites (SNS) in education. In my rare free time, I try to be updated not only in research in technology in education, but also in practice, surfing the Web for tools & applications for educational purposes. I also enjoy reading novels, cooking & baking, art exhibitions and good movies. Oh, and I have a wonderful family: I'm married with 3 great kids.
