"BE MY GUIDE"
70ΤΗ Primary School of Athens
Through this educational programme, pupils were able to create a multimedia application for mobile devices, specially designed for children. In particular, they used an electronic guide of the school neighborhood, focusing on the historical, social and general urban aspect of the area, which is one of the most important tourist destinations in Athens.
Starting at the school, which was built by architect Patroclos Karantinos and is a monument of modern history, the pupils designed a guide by children for children, choosing a route mainly around the pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou, with reference to specific stops-points of interest. The aim of the programme was to transform personal experiences into systematic information and knowledge, to look deep into the issue of tourism development in the region and to engage in the creative process of producing an interactive product with increased technological specifications.
The programme was based on modern models of education: experiential learning, interdisciplinary approach, group-collaborative learning for a specific purpose, and was directly associated with the subjects on the Curriculum.
