Our participation in the Environmental Greek net ” Nature without garbage” helped the pupils to enrich knowledge.
The activities were part of the educational innovative projects National Greek, that i have designed this year, dedicated to Environmental issues and Culture.
Furthermore we participate in European educational eTwinning projects and in the framework of our effort we collaborate with schools from other countries.
The pupils worked in the classroom and were encouraged to work in small groups. We used the project method and the process was baded on experiential learning. The art of Printmaking was used as a pedagogical tool. We cultivated lifeskils through Land Art. Fine Arts and Technology were creatively combined. Digital puzzle games were created and played. Cteative recycling through Art.
They were inspired by the Art work of the great Masters of the history of Art.
