    Teaching and management staff participate in European mobility and cooperation activities, focused on Differentiated teaching, Learning difficulties and New technologies in education, aimed to enhance school’s staff competences and strengthen their pedagogical level, as well exchange good practices with their colleagues from other countries

    Knowledge, skills and experiences that will be gained by the participants in this mobility project, will be embedded in the daily school practice, bringing benefits to teachers, pupils and parents. It is expected to facilitate the teaching and learning process and to improve the interpersonal relationships of all involved in the educational process, contributing substantially to address problems in the classroom.

  • Cosmo club Open or Close

    This year, we have organized a cosmology group at the School of European education of Heraklion.

    Our group will study the evolution of the Universe as described by the standard cosmological model, from the Big Bang to the dark-energy dominated expansion that the Universe undergoes today.

    Our aim is to conceive the dependence of the evolution of the cosmological theory from the observational data available and hence from technological evolution.

    To that end, among other tools, we will use a mathematical software package in order to compare the standard cosmological model predictions with the recent data from the Planck satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA).

    The group meetings will be held weekly, after the end of the lessons. All members of the school community are welcome to attend!

  • Math club Open or Close

    In the spirit of stability and evolution of supplementary educational guidelines at SEEH (which are not covered from the daily teaching program) and taking advantage last year’s deposit, the school’s mathematicians suggest the foundation of Math club for the present school year 2018-2019.

    Fundamental and primitive goal of Math club is to emphasize and develop the mathematical thinking and ability of our school’s pupils along with the understanding of the organic link between mathematics and other scientific areas as well as everyday life in all aspects. Additional goals are the integration among pupils in order to strengthen the bonds between them and the enhancement of European identity for pupils and school.

    We are mainly aiming to study two subjects:

    1. Units of measurements
      Studying the historic evolution of units of measurements, their birth, foundation and differentiation. Grand discoveries, new thoughts, new scientific areas. Scientists names. Mathematical influence, social consequences.
    2. Mathematical proof
      The meaning of proof. Necessity and consequence. Forms of proof. Contradictions and paradoxes. Logic, philosophy, order and disorder.

     Math club meetings will last two hours (after the daily program) and every two weeks. The meeting day shall be decided along with the pupils involved. Besides the mainly educational aspect of the meetings we shall be given the opportunity to approach the former mentioned subjects in more ways as: creations, experiential games, rhetoric games, watching relative movies and videos. At the end of the school year, if the circumstances allow it, Mathclub shall present its work to the school community.
