Strategic Partnerships for Schools Only - ERASMUS+

Slogan: ''Make our Future by learning about the Past"

The “70 Y.E.H” project will last 2 years and Greece is the coordinating country. A great number of participants will be involved in it through a variety of activities. There will be students, teachers, administrative and educational staff from all partner schools, parents, members of the Education Offices and Municipal Councils, as well as members of the academic and the local community.

The project includes activities at both local and transnational level, designed to achieve the objectives and the delivery of the final products. These activities aim to strengthen cooperation among partner schools by exchanging of practices and to promote the development and the implementation of innovative teaching methods.
Local activities include: information research, workshops, debates in classroom, interactive classes, webinars on the web2.0 tools, lectures, on line conferences, presentations, informative seminars, study visits to museums /art centers /scientific laboratories, meetings among members of the local teams, competitions, exhibitions and dissemination activities.

The transnational activities (a total of six) will combine short-term exchange of groups of students and short-term joint staff training events and will include: attending courses, participating in presentations/ debates/interactive lessons/ exhibitions/ festivals, carrying out researches and studies and visiting monuments of historical interest, art galleries, museums etc.
There will also be two transnational meetings (at the beginning of each project year) among History, English and ICT teachers of the schools’ local teams for coordinating and management purposes.
Almost all the final products of the project will be in both digital and printed form. Among them there will be a collection of work and evaluation sheets, a historical guide, a vocabulary booklet, an application for mobile phones, albums, timelines, the official project’s blog and a board game.

We expect that this project will have an impact on students by offering them a different education prospective, discovering new ways of learning and achieving greater cognitive development by cultivating most of the "21st century skills" like critical thinking, research skills, team work, ICT competences etc. 

At the same time this project will equip teachers with new tools for interdisciplinary teaching for courses like History, Art and Science and will help them to introduce a European dimension in the classroom.
