Eat healthily, Live happily (EN-CUR-595)

This lesson combines healthy nutrition awareness and digital literacy development. It follows a learner-
centred orientation providing learners with opportunities to collaborate with each other in order to
accomplish a task. The teacher’s role is only that of a guide and facilitator. Students’ awareness
regarding healthy nutrition can be increased during this lesson. Through the activities, the students not
only become confident users of digital media but also realise the importance of good eating habits for
their health.

The students are exposed to multimodal media (texts, video, pictures) as a stimulus to get introduced to
the topic of the scenario and increase awareness concerning healthy eating habits. Through a task-based
approach the students are asked and expected to create a menu for a British friend who is going to
spend some time in Greece and justify their choices for the menu.

This learning scenario has been developed during the “Digital Education with Cultural Heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
