Build and establish your school’s identity

The process of starting a business involves some key steps e.g. from choosing a business name to selecting a business structure.

Because like you, your business is a living, breathing thing, and requires care and nurturing to ensure its success. This talk will focus on tools and practical tips for school owners to help them build and establish their school’s identity and connect with current and potential clients.

Get ready for the winter! Blended learning and how to integrate it into your teaching

Dimitris Primalis, Teacher, Teacher Trainer
A few months ago, most of us had to shift, practically overnight, to online teaching. In most cases, students and parents overlooked errors, omissions and glitches, and praised your emergency teaching under unforeseen circumstances such as a pandemic. But this winter, their expectations are much higher! Can you combine traditional face-to-face teaching and online teaching seamlessly?

Πώς αντιμετωπίζουν οι γονείς το ενδεχόμενο να έχει το παιδί τους κάποια Δυσκολία Μάθησης ή Συμπεριφοράς; Ποια η θέση του εκπαιδευτικού

Ασημίνα Αλεξανδροπούλου, Καθηγήτρια Αγγλικών, Ειδική Παιδαγωγός
Τι συμβαίνει όταν ο εκπαιδευτικός καλεί τους γονείς να συζητήσουν τις ιδιαίτερα χαμηλές επιδόσεις ή την ανησυχητική συμπεριφορά του παιδιού τους; Ποια είναι τα συναισθήματα που εκείνοι νιώθουν όταν ενημερώνονται ότι το παιδί δεν βρίσκεται στο ίδιο επίπεδο όπως οι συμμαθητές του και πως αντιδρούν στην πιθανότητα Μαθησιακών Δυσκολιών; Πως επηρεάζουν το παιδί αυτές τους οι αντιδράσεις; Αυτά τα ερωτήματα θα προσπαθήσουμε να απαντήσουμε ώστε να είναι πιο εύκολη η προσέγγιση και η συνεργασία μεταξύ γονέων και εκπαιδευτικών με στόχο να βοηθήσουν από κοινού το παιδί να αποδώσει το μέγιστο των δυνατοτήτων του.
