Διαπολιτισμική αγωγή και δημιουργική εκπαίδευσηPart of : Επιστήμες Αγωγής ; No.1, 2006, pages 123-136
The aim of this article is to include the needs of intercultural education in an holistic frame of a pedagogic proposal. First, we examine the nature and the necessity of intercultural education, particularly the greek case. Then, we investigate the philosophical background that inevitably supports ontological and epistemological choices concerning the goals of intercultural education. The proposal describes the cognitive process as an authentic creation, the student as a creative person and the environment as a field of direct and personal expression through the uniqueness of each one and in interaction with the uniqueness of others. Thus the intercultural character of creative education is shown: the concept of creativity becomes clear in a holistic frame; its relationship with the cultivation of cross-cultural attitudes is determined at multiple levels; a frame of planning and application of creative teaching is proposed analytically in the light of a systemic approach, so it is effective in providing the student with those skills needed in order to develop his cultural self and to include creatively this self beside his «other» cultural selves.
