Athens Coordination Group Education

 

In May 2017 several educational projects in and around Athens started coming together as it became clear that collaboration could be very valuable for everybody involved. No Border School was one of the founding members of the coordination system that was created. We started gradually, with an informal collaboration that included the sharing of resources and best practice. This project is continuously developing with the aim of learning from each other’s best practices, sharing resources, collaboratively creating an online platform for teaching resources, teacher training, and a common curriculum.

Workshops

In order to share the knowledge and skills of No Border School teachers as well as encourage continuous development of teaching practice, No Border School has organised several workshops in Athens, bringing together people from different educational projects to share their experience, knowledge and skills.

These workshops are focused on teaching in our particular context, both to provide training to  inexperienced teachers and help experienced teachers develop understanding of this context.  Some examples include:

  • Cultural Mediation: January 2017, Khora, Swana

  • Theatre techniques in class: Orange House, January 2017, Natalia Sanchez,

  • Empowering Students: How to develop Critical Thinking, Khora, February 2017, Laura Cesaro,

Moodle

 

Moodle is an ambitious project that arose out of the Education Coordination, where a few of the groups, No Border School included, realised the need for a way to systematically share teaching resources. That is why we developed moodle - a collaborative online platform supporting language teachers by providing a curriculum, training materials, and a platform for collaboration and sharing of resources. This online platform is in operation and being continuously developed and improved.
