Organisation: Sotiropoulos English Language School
Christos has been teaching English since 1993 in a small village 30 km from Chania in Crete, Greece. He started with 30 students in a private school and now teaches English to about 100 students from K-3 to K-12. Christos has always tried to involve his students in international projects so as to open a window to the world for them. An opportunity to answer the “Freedom City 2017 Big Question” by Sugata Mitra on Martin Luther King Day is what made the SOLE project finally kick-off in the small village at the root of the White Mountains.
He is a certified virtual teacher and Moodle Course Creator, a member of PALSO the Panhellenic Association of Language School Owners in Greece and an amateur Astronomer member of Crete Astronomy Friends Club and National Coordinator for Astronomers Without Borders Sidewalk Astronomers involved in projects around the world. This involvement in Astronomy projects with children as part of the Outreach programme by Crete Astronomy Friends Club could be expanded by using SOLE.
