MOnuMENTA through the programme "Local Communities & Monuments" is composing, with the help of the Municipality of Naxos and Small Cyclades, a fairytale including knights, dragons, treasures, menhirs, towers, ruins, elves that actually happened in Naxos in earlier, distant times.


These fairytales will be narrated by four archaeologists that worked in the Archaeological Service in the period 1960-1995, leaving their mark to the research, protection and enhancement of the archaeological wealth of the island. Their comrades along with friends and the people of the island will help to the unfolding of the fairytales.


These will take place in Naxos island, in the ex-College of Ursulines (Castle of Chora, Naxos) on Sunday 3rd July 2011, 7 p.m. The fairytales will end with a small feast. Through this, we attempt to examine an alternative perspective, unexplored in terms of interpretation, considering the social past and present of the monuments, commencing at the same time our research on intangible heritage about understandings, uses and management of monuments, products of which will be published in due course on our new website.

The "True fairytales of Naxos" are kindly supported by VALLINDRAS distillery and AKTAION pastry shop.

Interactive Methods of the Group
by Badi Cristina and Beraru Georgeta

The interactive methods of the group have important impact on the way of thinking and acting of children. Their application is made as a game with rules. Presented in this way, the methods convince the children to participate to the activity, for an active learning and cooperation and determine them to collaborate inside the group. The teachers should know how to use these interactive group-work methods taking into consideration the different personalities of the children. Each child needs a special gesture, questions, advice, motivation and attitude depending on the situation.

Research suggests that Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development may have greater impact when they are applied at small ages, starting from the kindergarten.

Young children really enjoy being in the field, directly involved in hands on activities, games, and experiences, using all senses; things that make enjoyable and effective EE/ESD at this school level.

You may find herewith a comprehensive article about the EE/ESD projects that a kindergarten in Romania realized in almost one school-year!
