The HCO’s educational programme “Copyright and Related Rights” received the approval of the Ministry of Education for the school year 2016-2017. For the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades of the primary school the programme can be implemented in the Flexible Zone. For the 5th and 6th grades, the programme can be implemented as part of the Social and Political Education and through the Cultural Activities. In all the grades there can be interdisciplinary implementation of the program.
The educational programme “Copyright and Related Rights” was created and developed by the HCO in cooperation with a group of teachers. It has the support of the European Union which, last year, funded its promotion throughout Greece and the creation of the material that is mentioned below. The programme and HCO’s policy have also been presented at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
In order to support the program, the HCO has launched the website www.copyrightschool.gr. The website contains video games, guides, faq, comic book, word search, puzzles, posters, etc. The material is addressed to secondary education too. In the website, one can also find the animated short film with the title “Orpheus creating…” that was produced specifically for the educational programme.
The HCO can send printed material to teachers, upon request, for use in the classroom (comic books, handbooks for teachers and pupils, stickers and posters).
