New ‘miGRant’ survey helps to develop a better Greek language education in Australia

·

A new ‘miGRant’ survey has been announced by a group of academics who want to help create a better Greek language education for Greek children in Australia.

As part of the survey, researchers from Macquarie University in Australia, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Hamburg in Germany, will investigate adolescent digital literacy practices to design a better approach to Greek language education for the youth of new migration background.

To do this, they are looking to talk to new Greek migrant families who have children between the ages of 11-15 years, have moved to Australia between 2010-2018 and at least one parent speaks Greek as their first language.

Two one-hour interviews using Zoom (or similar technology) will be conducted between November and mid-December 2020.

If you are interest in participating or would like more information, please contact Associate Professor Panos Vlachopoulos from Macquarie University at panos.vlachopoulos@mq.edu.au or the MIGRANT team at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki at migrant@auth.gr.
