eleftheria_karagiorgouAccording to Eleftheria Karagiorgou : “The series of webinars of LANGOER were very interesting. I liked the webinar about Creative Commons the most and all the knowledge that I gained from that webinar, I will use it in the classroom”. Our school is a public school and is always looking for digital innovations, sharing the following common characteristics:

  • They are seeking to achieve teamwork
  • They aim at the students’ involvement
  • They intend to break new ground towards the local community
  • They wish for the knowledge uniting of different cognitive subject matters

Taking this into account, working with OER are a true added value for the way we would like to work within our school.
