“Staellinika” Adds to Resources for Young Learners with New Mythology Course

NEW YORK — Medusa, Hercules, and Daedalus will be your teachers in the newest educational resource on the Staellinika platform: a course on mythology for learners 8 and up.

The newly added mythology course joins a suite of story-driven and game-based language courses designed to engage preschoolers, elementary students, and young adults in the Greek diaspora. These were developed through Rebooting the Greek Language, a project of the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies and the SNF New Media Lab at SFU, with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

Staellinika, a collaborative effort of the SNF Center for Hellenic Studies and the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad at the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is built to reach heritage learners around the world at school and at home through independent study.
