Making of

In the Greek 1st Primary School of Sparta there was a team of 4 teachers working on our project:

Miranda (Maria-Alexandra) Koumanakou, the founder of the project and the Drama teacher,

Maria Oikonomou, the Arts Teacher,

Matoula (Stamatia) Voulgari, the B1 Class teacher 

and Marigo Vidali, the B2 Class teacher.

We hereby explain how we collaborated in creating the digital stories and sharing them with our partner in 10 steps in chronological order. 

1. Composing the story during the Drama Class with Miranda:

2. Each student painting his/her own images representative of each section of their story during the Arts Class with Maria.
