Innovative Programs

Case Studies

For the first time in Greece, Mandoulides Schools, in cooperation with the educational organization StageLearn, are introducing case studies in the Projects lesson.

For decades, case studies have been successfully used as an educational tool in prestigious universities abroad and specifically in law, business and medical undergraduate and graduate schools.

Case studies are realistic stories that connect academic knowledge with everyday life. In dealing with case studies, students assume a leading role and answer scientific and ethical questions. This educational method can be used not only to explore scientific issues, but also to develop critical thinking and cultivate team spirit.

Objectives:

  • Development of critical thinking abilities.
  • Cultivation of team spirit.
  • Exploration of modern scientific issues.
  • Predominantly influenced by STEM sciences.

Watch & Learn:
Preparation for the Panhellenic examinations is changing...

For the first time in Greece, Mandoulides Schools are applying exclusively an innovative program, which provides 10th and 12th grade students the opportunity for further practice on topics of Ancient Greek, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry on the model of the Panhellenic examinations, online, at home!

Students are able to:

  • See the solutions to original practice questions on video created according to the Panhellenic examinations’ standards, answered in an exemplary manner, as the examination system requires.
  • Familiarize themselves with the system and the examinations’ requirements.
  • Practice addressing challenging questions of varying degrees of difficulty.

Flipped Classroom:
The class is changing...

The program Flipped Classroom takes 8th and 9th grade students on an exciting journey of knowledge in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology through modern online lectures, which students can watch at home, before the lectures are given in class!

The implementation of this program allows teachers to spend more time on additional consolidation exercises and to cooperate with all the students in the classroom, while making lectures enjoyable and creative.

 

Art & Science Days

The program caters to 2nd - 12th grade students of Mandoulides Schools and other schools of the city, public and private. Its main aim is to bring children closer to the world of Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy and the arts.

Mandoulides Programming Day

30/08/2017, 10:00 - 14:00
Junior - Senior High School students

Program Supervisor: Lazaros Tzimkas
Lecturer: Christos Malliarakis*

The program aims to inspire students to program their computer. Younger students are taught the philosophy of programming and learn to program in specially designed virtual microcosms. Then they are invited to program virtual robots to find their way out of labyrinths, and to solve playful problems with the minimum number of commands. Older students who are already familiar with programming, are taught algorithms, design and how to solve problems and plan their solutions in the programming language C/C ++.

*Christos Malliarakis is a graduate of the Department of Applied Informatics, University of Macedonia with a PhD in teaching Programming and Masters degrees in Information Systems and Management. He has published more than 30 papers in international conferences, journals and book chapters. He has worked as a Software Engineer and an IT teacher at Mandoulides Schools while he has also prepared students for Olympiads in Informatics.
