What is edutales?

Once upon a time – This is how many stories begin and how they invite young and old to dream and reflect. Our edutales platform deals with the magic of storytelling, but also brings innovative answers to the challenges of a globalized, multicultural and digitized society. It is no longer just about pure reflection, but also about the fascinating possibility of a change of perspective, about actively participating and creatively producing your own stories.

edutales is part of the cross-border project SESAM GR ‘ and is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (short EFRE). This understands how to give children and adolescents the necessary key skills from an early age, so that they can develop freely, act self-reflectively and participate in our fast-paced society. On this platform you will find a lot of information on “storytelling in teaching”, elaborated didactic materials for direct integration in the classroom, as well as handouts for the production of your own storytelling products. edutales deals with a total of four focal points.


Promotion of media skills, the ability to criticize, as well as the ability to make judgments through the (inter) active examination of operational scenarios and the production of own examples.


Ideas and lines of action on the subject of “democracy education” to promote responsible, democratic and holistic action in society.


Suggestions and ideas for deeper discovery and discussion of cultural, linguistic or religious diversity, as well as their appreciation and awareness raising.


Teaching materials and impulses for further training of a responsible, sustainable and reflective awareness of our ecosystem and the environment.
