  • [01] Microsoft recognises two Acharnes schools for innovative teaching

    ANA-MPA -- Two Greek public schools housed in the same building, the 26th and 29th Secondary Schools in the Acharnes city of East Attica, were jointly recognised by Microsoft corporation for innovative education for 2013.

    The two schools, competing as a single group, included four Greek teachers. The group was was one of 250 individual teachers or groups selected from 23,000 applicants globally for "leveraging technology in the classroom and preparing students for life in the 21st century," according to Microsoft's Partners in Learning site.

    Selection was based on an online application with an amateur three-minute video presenting their teaching innovations. Microsoft will work closely with the applicants selected to improve technology use in the classroom.

    All selected teachers and schools are invited to attend the Partners in Learning Global Forum 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, from March 11 to 14, 2014. Attendance at the forum is by invitation only and includes participants from the Microsoft Expert Educators Program, the Microsoft Mentor Schools Program, higher education faculty members and education leaders. Last year's event was attended by more than 800 attendees from 80 countries, along with government officials, policy makers and partners.

    The principals of the 26th and 29th school, Dr. Mattheos Patrinopoulos and Fotios Perris, respectively, expressed their satisfaction for their schools' distinction and their teachers' recognition for their innovative approaches in the classroom.
