On 27th June 2012, I was fortunate enough to be at Μathisi 2.0 convention, in which I gave a talk about the application of educational technology in our school and received a distinction award of good digital teaching practice. The project thought to deserve such distinction is called 'Books and Technology', the one we have discussed in a recent article for the iTDi community (Technology in your classes by Christina Markoulaki).

There were many more participants who presented innovative projects, but unfortunately do not appear in the following album. More photos, videos and slides are to be published soon on . The photos were taken by Michael Kapsalis ( You can view them here.

I need to express my gratitude to the organizing committee of the awards as well as to the students of our school and their parents, who are always open to new online challenges and adventures!

Talking about new technologies and how they can promote traditional values.

Statement on the use of social media in education to Mathisi 2.0 journalists.
Video to be published soon!
