ICT- A NEW LEARNING AND TEACHING TOOL IN ANCIENT GREEK STUDIES
Attention is focused on a secondary education oriented, modern-technology based teaching system of ancient Greek. One may, though, wonder about an antiquated language becoming accessible and likeable via the use of contemporary communication media.
It ought to be understood that although not a currently used language, ancient Greek may not be regarded as antiquated, as it remains actively and sufficiently usable as the linguistic code of ancient Greek civilization.
We want to look into: a. A University’s ability to adopt novel technological techniques in teaching, and b. Students’ susceptibility to a novel approach to teaching. To this end, we first examine the existent Curriculum of Ancient Greek courses in Greek Universities, focusing on their sci-tech applications. Secondly, we are interviewing a three and four-year Univ. of Athens and Univ. of Kalamata student sample with a secondary education teaching career goal. It is expected that their future teaching performance will be shaped by the know-how, expertise and facility acquired during the Univ. learning process. Questions to pose: a. How flexible technology systems can assist young technology enthusiasts in learning ancient Greek, and b. How Univ. Ancient Greek texts and ideations can become approachable for youngsters, enriching the range of their quests toward problem solving, and intellectual pursuits via the technologically driven communication media.
Finally, we intend to present the students’ proposals on a humanistic curriculum aiming at the education of moral man, as a medium of sublime moral values and ideals.
