Presentation of the program to teachers of the district.

In September 2017, the pedagogical team and the coordinator of the program for our school, the 1st primary school of Schimatari, participated in a conference held by the Teacher’s counsellor of our district aiming in presenting innovative eTwinning or Erasmus+  programs which the schools of our district run.

This was a great opportunity for disseminating the program to all the teachers – around 150 people- and to awaken their interest in participating themselves in similar programs. At first we talked about the whole procedure from the very first step: finding the partners, writing the e-form, the economic benefits for the school, all the administrative detail, the importance of a constructive communication with all the other partners and then we presented all the activities we had done during the first year of the project both in our school, the planning, the teaching methods used as well as the international workshops, stressing out the benefits for our pupils, teachers and the local society.

Our intention is to continue participating in such events so that our efforts and good practises to be known to even more teachers of the district and to motivate them to be involved in such innovative educational procedures which will open up new professional roads for them but mainly involve their pupils and community members to new and exciting experiences through which they will enrich their knowledge.

2nd reading night

On April 25th we had the 2nd transnational reading night where pupils from all four schools participated in activities with a common theme… myths from our region. In the first part of the event, all pupils worked on a myth of their choice and created drawings or used other online applications to produce a comic for their myth. On the second part of the reading night, we all “met” on a live eTwinning event and presented our myths and drawings or pictures. All the myths which were presented were then used in order to produce an e-book. Following are some pictures from the event.
