Collaborative on Learning (COOL) Communities Research Group is comprised of faculty and student researchers from the University of Haifa Educational Technologies Program who are interested in learning communities. Our aim is to make contributions to current research on learning communities, building on the shoulders of giants who have started such terrific work. 

The COOL Research Group is guided by Dr. Dani Ben-Zvi, senior lecturer at the University of Haifa Faculty of Education, founder of the Educational Technologies Program, co-founder and co-chair of the International Collaboration for Research on Statistical Reasoning, Thinking, and Literacy (SRTL), and one of the scientific managers of the Israeli Center for Research Excellence - Learning in a Networked Society (LINKS).
