EDEN Open Classroom Conference: #OCCAthens
Athens, 18-21 September 2015
The EDEN Open Classroom Conference 2015 in Athens was a real success! And ODS was present to contribute to the discussion and present its achievements.
The 4-day conference, organised by EDEN and Ellinogermaniki Agogi, was held at the Ellinogermaniki Agogi school in beautiful Athens from 18 to 21 September 2015. ODS was one of the main projects presented during the event, with many ODS teachers and practitioners sharing their experience and explaining how ODS helped them bring innovation to their schools and support their students.
More than 170 delegates attended and shared their experience, participated in the training activities and were inspired by the keynote speakers during the four days. You can find here some of the resources and outcomes of the conference.
