In the contexts of ICT enriched classrooms the Greek school already uses augmented reality games and it is a part of its daily programme and its
activities. The objective is to share this experience with European colleagues and help them establish the same practice of preparing stimulating and
entertaining learning activities to be conducted outside the classroom. They will produce culture-based digital learning activities in combination with
field trips. Teachers will learn how to design active tasks for outdoor learning.
All the teachers will also produce lesson plans in Learning Designer for their teaching assignments and after being commented on and adapted, they
will be included in the RRC ebook. Teachers will learn to use new learning environments outside classroom for culture based learning and learn
about digital tools for digital content creation. They will explore new ways in integrating key competences.

Bearing in mind the fact that learning is most effective when paired with experience, this event will help teachers integrate a culture awareness
approach in schools’ Curriculums and Annual Plans and raise their cultural awareness and expression. They will learn about digital tools for digital
content creation and about the best practices from trainers. Teachers will learn how to promote a school development policy in relation to culture,
creativity and digital learning. By working with their international colleagues their social and civic competences will be improved. They will learn to
use elements of culture in subject teaching or as an interdisciplinary school approach or use new open learning environments such as museums,
archaeological sites, points of cultural heritage, galleries etc. through a field trip to the medieval city of Rhodes for the introduction to Greek and
European history and cultural environment as a learning context. By encouraging teachers to include new approaches in their teaching, they will be
able to show their creativity.
Moreover, participants will improve English language skills and develop their understanding of intercultural education and training. They will teach
classes in English to a group of foreign students which will help them believe in themselves and learn more about cultural heritage which can be used
as an educational resource. This will be an additional incentive in their involvement in eTwinning projects and new Erasmus+ projects thus further
introduce the European dimension in school. By working in international groups teachers will enhance their their collaborative and communication
skills and develop awareness about shared learning of teachers with rich European experience which will result in a change in self-reliance.
