Sinbad – A journey to promote key competences in early childhood education through story telling

The Sinbad project aims at promoting storytelling and the use of storytelling techniques in pre-school and primary school education, in order to enhance the key competences acquired by children.

Grampus Heritage are partners in the consortium led by Wisamar Bildungsgesellschaft (Germany), involving partners from Holland, Lithuania, Greece and Turkey, aiming to raise awareness of the potential of storytelling in education and supporting educators and teachers in applying storytelling in education.

This will be reached by developing an education pack for educators and teachers and implementing it in the form of blended learning. An e-learning course will contain training about methodologies and techniques as well as materials and different resources about storytelling in education. In order to provide a platform for practicing the acquired knowledge and skills, storytelling practice sessions will be organized in all implementing partner countries. Guidelines how to organise storytelling practice will make the tools further self-sustainable and allow pre-school and primary teachers to establish local storytelling groups for continuous education.
