Educational Activities at the Primary Level 2017-2018
The John S. Latsis Public Foundation wishes
and so, for the fifth year running invites primary school teachers to submit proposals to be implemented in the 2017-2018 school year by kindergartens and primary schools throughout Greece.
The key aim of the programme is to strengthen the personality of the pupil, the growth and development of self, the promotion and reinforcement of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-perception through innovative actions (e.g. SMART targeting) and implementation of cooperative/collaborative teaching methods.
At the same time it provides the opportunity for the submission of proposals which will promote pupil entrepreneurship (e.g. school cooperatives), in this way cultivating pupils’ personal skills and critical thinking (the critical thinking approach), familiarizing them with concepts linked to the field of economics, linking school life with real life situations through experiential actions and activating school students’ creativity and ability to resolve everyday problems (the problem solving method).
Through this programme the opportunity is provided for schools to cultivate the cooperative culture, and its spirit, and for educators to apply modern teaching methods and innovative educational ideas and practices.
