Invitation for teachers to participate in a Program for Oral History .
The Chania Film Festival, with the support of the Regional Centre for Educational Planning (PEKES) of Crete, within the framework of the training program “Voices” – oral history in the foreground”, to be realized during 2021 (January – October), invites primary and secondary education teachers who are interested, to participate in the action of the program CRe-stories/“Tell me a story!..” – Oral history at school and/or throughout the training program afterwards.
This Action has a dual character.
a/ It is an introductory part of the annual training program, for those of the participants who decide to attend it afterwards.
b) It is designed to operate independently of the program, for those participants who wish to use it in their school and are not interested in participating in the annual program.
The Action includes:
- Initial three-hour modern teacher training (theory and practice, preparation of application with/without students).
- Asynchronous practical training (audiovisual history recording, archiving). Teachers undertake to implement an Oral History Action. Specifically, teachers, taking into account the proposed framework for the implementation of the Action
- CRe-stories/“Tell me a story!..” and relevant instructions of a technical nature and content provided by the Festival, they design and implement their own Oral History Action in their classroom, in their school, in a group of students or in a group of teachers, on a subject of their own choice from the modules:
- Objects of remembrance in the Cretan family
- final three-hour feedback synchronous six-hour meeting (presentation of recorded stories, completion of the Evaluation Sheet of the Action).
Total Duration of Action (synchronous and asynchronous): 15 hours.
