Ellinogermaniki Agogi (EA) has rich experience in the coordination of research and demonstration projects focusing on teacher training and professional development and since 2008 it has been organising successful international training courses for teachers, funded by the European Commission (up to 2013 by the LLP Comenius Programme and as of 2014 by the ERASMUS+ programme), focusing on innovative teaching practices and use of e-learning resources and tools in order to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in European schools.
EA is an educational organization of private law, officially recognized by the State. It is an institutional member of EDEN (European Distance Education Network) and of STEDE (Science Teacher Education Development in Europe) network. EA was the national representative of the Greek Ministry of Education in the International exhibition “Salon de l’ education” that was held in November 2000 in Paris in the framework of the e-Learning Initiative of the European Commission. EA was the first Greek educational organization, which applied ODL in secondary level education in the year of 1993. Since 1995, the organization has established a devoted department, the Research and Development (R&D) Department for the design, development and implementation of the research activities in education, expanding the collaboration with Universities and pedagogical Institutions across Europe, as it provides the best -bed for research applications. During the last years the R&D department has coordinated and supported the participation of EA in more than 100 European (Horizon 2020, Erasmus+, IST, eContent+, Socrates, MINERVA, Leonardo da Vinci) and National projects.
Cabrilog is the expert in the teaching and learning of mathematics organizing the Open Math Summer School.
Founded in 2000 by Jean-Marie Laborde, Cabrilog designs, develops and distributes digital teaching resources and apps dedicated to mathematics for students and teachers from primary to university.
Its goal is to improve the quality of learning. This is why the activities are subject to a report based on several areas of expertise (didactical engineering and pedagogical design of digital resources for learning mathematics, design of highly interactive 2D and 3D mathematical engines, student-centred interfaces) providing didactical support highlighted by many studies. Of most note is a study which makes a connection between the results from the national testing of Spanish students and the use of Cabri application and resources. The study shows a 30% improvement in results compared to students who do not use Cabri application or resources.
Since 2004, Cabri software has more than 200 million users worldwide, having a well deserved place internationally in education.
Proactively, Cabrilog is involved in innovative projects (like the H2020 project iMuSciCA) and more particularly with text-book publishers (Mc Graw Hill, Pearson), online learning platform (NetEduc, Number Stories) and Ministries of Education (French Ministry of Education, Chile Ministry of Education, Japan Ministry of Education etc.).
