My name is Ronen Cohen. I am originally from Israel, although I left this beautiful and alive yet troubled country in 1999. I started as a backpacker, and soon discovered the amazing world of the ex-pat: Working and living abroad. I pursued a BA in Education from the University of Iowa, and in 2011 I received my K-12 Talented and Gifted Specialist Endorsement. As a new challenge , I decided to work toward a Master’s Degree in Educational Technology.
Together with my wife Lia (and later on my son Jivan) we lived and taught in Taiwan, Thailand, the US, Ghana, and now (for the 3rd time) in India. After 4 years of teaching and living in Bangalore, we will be moving in August 2015 to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a new adventure.
I love our lifestyle and it has already paid in so many ways- My perspective on the world and world issues has expanded, I matured as a teacher, and my son is growing to be a wonderfully open-minded and sensitive boy.
This is the last semester of my Master’s in Educational Technology (M.E.T.) journey, and in order to showcase my professional and personal development and the knowledge and skills I acquired throughout this journey, I created this portfolio blog.
I am very excited to have received my Graduate Certificate in Technology Integration!
I hope you enjoy going through it, and that you find the content and ideas to be interesting and applicable to teachers worldwide.
