The scientific seminar aims to illustrate the modern approaches of animation in the field of education, focusing on the use of new technologies and their potential for the development of complex educational activities.
The " And yet it moves" workshop is held for the fifth consecutive year at the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly and is now a meeting point for the Greek Animation Festival, highlighting their importance to the academic community and fostering collaboration and dialogue between young authors and institutionalized expression sites.
The seminar is organized in three sessions. The first focuses on the practices of the Greek Animation Festival and the ways in which an informal relationship with education can be set up. The second session includes suggestions on theoretical and methodological approaches, representation techniques and their integration into the educational process. Finally, the third session seeks to strengthen the dialogue between new technologies and Mass Media.
At the same time with the "And yet it moves: Animation - Education - New Technologies" seminar, a two-day workshop will also be held on 19th and 20th of May, for the students of the postgraduate program "Information Technologies and Communication for Education". The main objective of the workshop is to familiarize students with virtual reality audiovisual applications as well as geostrategic applications. Students will be required to implement specific practices through exercises that will be implemented during the workshop.
