Patras - Cultural capital of Europe

20th High School of Patras, Greece

Our town is the Cultural Capital of Europe for the year 2006. One of the most interesting exhibitions took place in Patras, that of Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpieces in construction.
Our school had the chance to admire the exhibits and wonder at the genius of this great artist, architect, mechanic, engineer and universal scientist. We were able to learn about the ingenuity of this man, his ability to foresee the future and how well advanced was he in his discoveries. Here are some examples of his best works:

Etwinning DigiSkills podcast

To involve teachers and students via podcasts turned out to be of advantage in lessons, e.g. in oral testing. There are a lot of educational podcasts alive! Etwinning DigiSkills project has got its own podcast.
Thus, our students should download a podcatcher like iTunes. If students subcribe to a podcast with iTunes, they will be able to get to know all updates like videos or audio files. And all students can do a homework creating audio files about a special subject. That´s another method of teaching. Students from all eTwinning DigiSkills partners could do a podcast project together, for example. I´m sure, students will enjoy it.
