They create and manage their own knowledge." “Teams are created according to the students’ interests - not their age“. “A counselor supports students in their team work." “The class is a big lab with different work stations.“ “In the library, students work in teams to collect information from written and electronic sources in order to evaluate, analyse and use them in a creative way." “They communicate electronically– for example , with Greek students in Australia, about their common history or with a professor at the University of Cambridge." “Afternoon classes are dedicated to athletic or cultural activities." “Parents and teachers communicate electronically." “Parents can have access to their children’s electronic files.” Konstantinos I. Doukas

  7. Leonardo da Vinci said: “… Studying without any desire to learn locks our memory up, which does not retain any kind of knowledge…” The interactive material and the friendly software, which teachers are provided with, enhance their lessons, create multiple representations to students, in order to motivate and help them assimilate what they are taught.

  29. Our objective is to design and build the “School of the Future” (SoF) progressively, through a developing action plan: • register the current and future educational needs; • study the international experience and methodology; • prepare the new technological infrastructure required; • prepare our teachers; • collect/create the appropriate educational digital material. The School of the Future, as we plan, design and create it, is a combination of the past, the present and the future. Parents participate actively in the educational process. Students change from passive recipient and participate actively in educational events. Teachers become collaborators and guides, they organise, inspire and create hands-on activities.
  30. In our "Classroom of the Future" students carry a light-weight portable "electronic schoolbag" and are connected wirelessly to the interactive whiteboard of their classroom, the internet and the “electronic” tools of their teacher. The classroom can take many forms (such as “traditional” class, “laboratory” or “collaborative”). The classroom arrangement can easily change thanks to the wireless equipment and portable computers. This "electronic" schoolbag (Tablet PC) contains all their books and hand-outs as well as virtual labs, simulations, multimedia material, their schoolwork and all tools connected to the educational process. The "Classroom of the Future" is also supported by a portal.
