edu|shorts is an initiative started by Athanasios Tsapelis and developed and designed as a platform for educational activities inspired by short films together with co-teacher Panos Kapiris.
edu|shorts grew from the passion for cinema and films. The founders believe that short films provide a unique way to deal with issues of identity and self-awareness because they tell a story in a few minutes with an easily discernible set of ideas and values.
edu|shorts aims to present short and concise educational activities which can be easily adapted to satisfy a diverse range of educational needs. edu|shorts is bilingual: all texts are written both in Greek and English to cater for the needs of a national and international audience. Browsing films is facilitated by synopses or themes. Educational activities are tagged according to suggested teaching strategies.
The educational activities of edu|shorts are used in school settings or as part of training programs for adults and can be facilitated by teachers, adult or lifelong trainers, psychotherapists, social workers or group facilitators.
