Christiana Katsarou's insight:

Last weeks' political and financial landscape in Greece has not prevented us from going on with our work for our cultural workshops' program in Armenistis, Ikaria island. Where Politics seem to be a labyrinth, Culture seems to be the only way out!

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders | eLeadership | eSkills | Leadership | Greek culture & language | Scoop.it

No one ever became a great leader without first becoming a great communicator.

Great leaders connect with people on an emotional level every time they speak. Their words inspire others to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Great communicators are intentional about it, and there are 10 secrets they rely on to deliver a powerful message. Put these secrets to work in your communication and watch your influence soar.

1. They Know Their Audience

2. They Are Experts In Body Language

3. They Are Honest

4. They Are Authentic

5. They Speak With Authority

6. They Speak To Groups As Individuals

7. They Have Ears (And They Use Them)

8. They Use Phrases Like "It's My Fault," "I Was Wrong," and "I'm Sorry"

9. They Solicit Feedback

10. They're Proactive

Leaders with the best communication skills don't waste time playing catch-up. They're quick to head off the rumor mill by sharing bad news in a timely manner. They also give clear, concise goals and directions so people don't waste their time heading in the wrong direction.

The 1st Ikaria Greek Language and Culture Project | Ikaria Holidays | Greek culture & language | Scoop.it

The ILCP Language program takes an innovative approach to learning languages and developing cultural awareness on the island of Ikaria, an Aegean island with a unique natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. Ikaria has raised the global interest of anthropologists and sociologists due to its unique culture and high longevity rates. It belongs to one of the five so-called world “blue zones” where people age slowly thanks to various factors, among which are the strong social and cultural bonds of its people. Close contacts with this interesting culture are at the heart of our approach that involves meeting local people through conversations, common experiences and outdoor activities. The combination of Greek and Ikarian art and culture (music, songs, dance, theatre, traditions and feasts, local gastronomy) will help you learn in a culturally and artistic based environment and in a relaxed way.
“To experience and learn through cultural adventure and real emotion”, this is the motto of our team.

A good read for those of us who teach in the arts. A quote from within: "Creativity cannot be legislated, funded, taught, bought or sold: like the imagination, it can only be freed, and freely applied."

I do believe that learning a new language does make an impact on  your brain because it is storing more  information but I do not beliive that it makes your brain larger.

IKARIA GREEK LANGUAGE – Live – Love – Learn Greece

IKARIA GREEK LANGUAGE – Live – Love – Learn Greece | Greek culture & language | Scoop.it
Empty description
Christiana Katsarou's insight:
July and August 2016 the team of Ikaria Greek Language Program realized its 2nd year summer workshops of Greek language through an experiential approach with activities of immersion to greek culture in real life circumstances. Christiana, Nikos, Layla, Roxani, Avgi, Eva and Antigoni shared alongside with 30 participants of different countries their insight in how one can evolve in learning the greek language by getting in contact with the everyday life of Ikaria island, an island connected to high longevity rates and an esteemed way of life according to recent research. The educators and teachers of the team originate from Ikaria or have established a long and deep relationship with the island and its people, therefore can facilitate the process of cultural and linguistic mediation to an extent that has proved very helpful to learners according to their feedback. Participants came from different countries of Europe and US. In their feedback, they presented different insights of their experience and their facilitation in language learning, yet the common conclusion of all was the strategic dealing of stress factors in the learning experience as well as the community feeling they enjoyed with their "classmates" through activities like greek dancing in local feasts, conversation sessions with local people or professionals, greek gastronomy workshop etc. A wonderful experience shared both by the facilitators-educators and participants to be repeated and furthermore developed during summer 2017, alongside with the organisation of IkariaDance project.

I’ve written about a number of video, audio, and collage creation tools, with WeVideo, Audacity, and PicMonkey topping some of my lists. However, it can be a challenge for students to locate copyright-friendly media when using these tools for presentations or idea sharing. It’s always best for students to create materials or use ones that are in the public domain. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found for the latter.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Christiana Katsarou's insight:

We can understand the immense value of involving art and poetry in language learning more and more...Regarding languages like Greek,  I observe more and more that  since it has a significant amount of idioms and more elaborated vocabulary tightly bonded with a socio-cultural context  that learners are often not in contact with, all activities with an artistic context relax their spirit and prepare them for new knowledge assimilation even without their full knowledge that this is happening.. Folk tales, proverbs, expressions, anecdotes, customs still kept transfused in a artistic context can be of great learning value.
