Ideas in the classroom: Online workshops for educators - Εικόνα

The SNFCC’s School Programs travel to the classroom and invite school teachers to learn, explore and try out innovative ideas and landmark concepts from the field of art, sustainability and public space.

Through short (40 min) online sessions for primary and secondary school teachers, we will present simple, small-scale activities for the classroom, and provide the necessary educational materials that participants can utilize in their classrooms after the session. 

The sessions and educational materials are provided free of charge, thanks to a grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. 

The following two programs are independent and not part of a workshops' series.

 

Sustainability in the Classroom: Recycling in class - for Primary School teachers.

What is the role of recycling in Climate change prevention and what did Ancient Greece have to do with recycling?

Why is kitchen roll not recycled? How do we distinguish which materials are recyclable? What are the guidelines we need to know about recycling? How many recycling bin types are there?

Teachers and students are invited to discover the secrets of recycling effectively, and apply them in their daily lives in order to prevent climate change in their own way. Students in the role of the researcher, discover, learn and record information about recycling, and develop their talents by creating recycled art from discarded materials.

Sustainability in the Classroom: Learning from Collections - for Primary School teachers.

What's the connection between: a pepper from our fridge and an origami pot, the 17th Century Paradoxes collection and school?

In what ways can the historical development of museums make a school walk in the park have more fun, and an idea by Michael Foucault surprise us within the class? How can we understand material culture if we didn't have museums, explanatory texts and guides, and what's the role of a hamburger package and a peach?

Teachers and students are invited to experiment in the classroom with non-formal educational tools, "blossom" their daily lives with interdisciplinary activities and "green" ideas, and create new collections and learn from them.
