EduACT is a volunteer group of young entrepreneurs, scientists, IT experts and pedagogues ready to ACT. The idea is to enhance the high professional values that exist across the entire European continent in the education area and get involved in any kind of educational projects. A current age the concept of the omniscient person is no longer valid and organisations need more skills and expertise to win challenging educational co operations, to ensure a steady economic growth to help investment and improvement of education in schools and out of the box.
Synergies are therefore essential; however it is difficult to find the right people in the right moment for the right position. That’s why joining a network of enlightened volunteers with professional attitude has become crucial not only to find a wide range of expertise but also to foster lateral thinking, which is the best way to find innovative solutions.
Making The Most Out Of Talent.
People are unique and perform at their best when they do what they are naturally good at in support of clear goals. Organizations reach prime performance when they recognize, value, develop and use the unique talents of their people in the delivery of their objectives.
The main goal of our projects and edulabs is about exploring who each individual student is, recognizing their talents, working out how they add value and what can be done to develop and use them more effectively.
Taking the leader out of young entrepreneurs.
To increase youth impact in the world, we believe that society needs leaders who are entrepreneurial, culturally sensitive, socially responsible and take an active part in their own learning. To gain a holistic experience eduact offers you the opportunity to take on a leadership role before or after your internship.
Learn how to lead a team, manage large projects and run a local or national project along with people all over the world! One of the best ways to develop what it takes to be a leader is to take up one of the leadership roles involved in eduact, at local, regional, national and global scale, as well as trainings in soft skills and functional areas in projects, researches, conferences and volunteering activities each year.
Most of our staff is drawn to Thessaloniki from the length and breadth of Greece and smaller number comes from all around the world. Diversity is one of our fundamentals and the range of nations, cultures languages and ideas is considerable.
The big idea lies behind the words, cooperation and networks. The power of the future and the answer to world economic downturn is connectivity.
The trip to knowledge is a feature of life and students are given the space and freedom to develop themselves.
Learning to learn, with a reason.
Teachers often assume that, because they are “teaching,” students must be learning. Students assume that, because they have read their text and memorized facts, they have learned something. What should we expect to learn from a national education?
What are the roles of students and teachers in the learning process? Are certain kinds of learning and thinking more valuable than others? What does sophisticated thinking look like and what are the developmental stages for getting there? What kinds of skills and knowledge do employers desire in their perspective employees? How do grades reflect a student’s thinking and learning? What role does higher education play in modern society?
