Featured Presentations

Tests, tests, tests: which one is good for my students?

In a highly competitive exam-prep environment, school owners and teachers get lost as to which test to choose for their students. In this talk, we will critically ex-plore the role of high-stakes exams in our context and set out criteria for choosing the best-suited for our students.

Δουλεύοντας με μαθητές με Ειδικές Μαθησιακές Δυσκολίες

Οι μαθητές με Ειδικές Μαθησιακές Δυσκολίες χρειάζονται μια ολοκληρωμένη παρέμβαση για να διευκολυνθούν και να αποκτήσουν θετική εικόνα για τη γνώση. Δουλεύοντας με τους παραπάνω μαθητές ένας εκπαιδευτικός πρέπει να είναι ενημερωμένος για όλα τα θέματα και να μπορεί να τους προσεγγίσει αποτελεσματικά.

Γιάννης Κοσμόπουλος, Ειδικός Παιδαγωγός

Multicultural classes: a new challenge for Greek schools

There is a large and growing number of children of different languages and cultures entering our schools. Schools are increasingly educating not only children who are themselves migrants or second generation immigrants but also refugees from countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq or Congo. • How does the traditionally monolingual Greek school respond to this new situation? • How has the teacher’s role changed or needs to change in such a diversified school environment? • What qualities and skills should language teachers possess to meet the needs of a diversified student population?

Kollatou Marina, State School Teacher

Failing to Learn vs Learning to Fail

With so many different teaching methods and the acknowledgement and study of several learning styles along with all the technologically advanced tools learning is failing. Is failing to learn, in itself, a useful path to learning? How important is psychological safety to high performance? Accepting mistakes with a view to learn and improve.

Build and establish your school’s identity - Μόνο για ιδιοκτήτες ΚΞΓ

The process of starting a business involves some key steps e.g. from choosing a business name to selecting a business structure. However the decisions you make about the words and visuals that represent your business and mold its identity, set the foundation for successful survival. Because like you, your business is a living, breathing thing, and requires care and nurturing to ensure its success.

Financial Intelligence: Για Βιωσιμότητα & Κερδοφορία

Στην ομιλία θα αναλύσουμε τη χρησιμότητα των καθημερινών χρηματοοικονομικών όρων & αριθμών, την αξιοποίηση των πληροφοριών και την «ανακάλυψη» της καμουφλαρισμένης πραγματικότητας που κρύβεται πίσω από τα νούμερα κλπ. Το ζητούμενο σε ένα ΚΞΓ, είναι να έχουν οι ιδιοκτήτες γνώση & ενημέρωση επί των χρηματοοικονομικών, όπως π.χ. «revenue, profit, cost of goods & services, cash flow expenses» κλπ, ώστε να οδηγούνται σε ορθότερες αποφάσεις για την επιβίωση & κερδοφορία του ΚΞΓ.

Δουλεύοντας με μαθητές με Ειδικές Μαθησιακές Δυσκολίες

Yiannis Kosmopoulos, Special Needs Educator, Teacher Trainer
Οι μαθητές με Ειδικές Μαθησιακές Δυσκολίες χρειάζονται μια ολοκληρωμένη παρέμβαση για να διευκολυνθούν και να αποκτήσουν θετική εικόνα για τη γνώση. Δουλεύοντας με τους παραπάνω μαθητές ένας εκπαιδευτικός πρέπει να είναι ενημερωμένος για όλα τα θέματα και να μπορεί να τους προσεγγίσει αποτελεσματικά.
Θα πρέπει να ορίζει ποιοι είναι οι γενικοί και ποιοι οι ειδικοί στόχοι που πρέπει να πετύχει. Σε ποια θέματα πρέπει να δώσει προτεραιότητα και σε ποια πρέπει να επικεντρωθεί. Για ένα ολοκληρωμένο πρόγραμμα πρέπει να επιλεγεί και να προετοιμαστεί  το κατάλληλο υλικό που θα χρησιμοποιήσει στην παρέμβαση. Στην παρουσίαση αυτή θα εξετάσουμε πώς πρέπει να δουλεύουμε με μαθητές με Ειδικές Μαθησιακές Δυσκολίες, τι πρέπει να προσέξουμε, ποιες τεχνικές είναι οι καταλληλότερες και πώς πρέπει να τις εφαρμόσουμε. Θα εξετάσουμε επίσης και πρακτικές περιπτώσεις ακολουθώντας συγκεκριμένες οδηγίες.
