Educational projects

During my teaching career I organised and developed several educational, cross-curricular projects. Below follows a list with the most important ones:

2012 onwards: In collaboration with two colleagues we started an initiative titled ICT4ALL with the aim to organise and run professional development courses on digital technologies for in-service teachers. Towards this goal we developed an online survey to gather teachers’ opinions and preferences as regards online tools and software, we organized several blended learning courses, we developed an online platform on Moodle to host our courses and we are supporting a growing community of teachers who publish their activities and ideas on a collaborative blog (http://perekpaideusi.blogspot.gr/).

2014-2015: I am collaborating with 4 teachers from different Greek schools and we are developing a collaborative school project titled “Digital stories live!”. Website of the project: http://digitalstorieslive.blogspot.com/

2014: I was selected and trained to participate in the Teachers4Europe programme of the European Commission Representation in Greece and I developed a project about cycling in Europe.

2013-2014: I participated in the development of a Multilateral Comenius project titled: “Networks in the past, present, and future”.

2012-2014: I collaborated with 10 teachers from different schools of the EU and we submitted a proposal to initiate a multilateral school project about sustainability. Our application was evaluated positively by the National Agencies and all partners/schools received the corresponding Comenius grant for the development of the project titled: “Mission into the future: a quest for sustainability”. I was appointed coordinator for the project in the Greek school and my activities during the project included: construction and monitoring of the website of the project, dissemination of the project in the internet (through Facebook account and group, twitter, and Flickr), planning and organising the meeting event in Greece, participation in the meeting events in Germany and UK, assisting project partners with ICT issues. Website of the project: http://missionintothefuture.wordpress.com/
