Biography

My background is in philosophy (mainly logic and epistemology) and educational psychology. In my teaching I am trying to integrate both disciplines and develop, together with my students, computerized tools that provide a new medium, a visual one, where our exchange of thoughts becomes less abstract, and therefore more accessible and manageable. These tools are typically welcomed by my students, and have an important impact on the clarity and depth of our discussions as well as on their reading and writing quality.

I have been a teacher all my life, and teaching the attempt to provide young people with better access to their inner richness - has always been very dear to me. For a long time my students have been a source of intellectual energy for me.

I taught k-12 and was responsible for large scale teachers training programs for many years.
