PAFSE – Partnerships for Education

Education Hero

MagIC actively collaborates in the PAFSE project, supported by Horizon 2020, focusing on community preparedness to reduce the risk of communicable diseases and epidemics. The project establishes partnerships between schools, universities, non-formal education providers, enterprises, and civil society organizations, enriching Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education by incorporating public health issues. Through novel educational provisions, MagIC engages students aged 12-15 in public discourse events and a blend of formal and informal activities utilizing digital tools, online teaching-learning environments, and educational scenarios. These initiatives aim to develop students' competence in project management and collecting, analyzing, and interpreting scientific evidence.

Digital Educational Platform

e-me is a collaborative, social and extendable Digital Educational Platform, a digital working and collaboration space for pupils and teachers.

e-me is a personal learning environment which supports:

  • creation of private and public collaboration spaces (hives) by teachers and pupils, communication and social networking among students and teachers,
  • organization, storage and exchange of files on the cloud,
  • easy creation of digital, interactive educational objects,
  • assigning and monitoring of tasks,
  • creation of e-portfolio for keeping selected personal achievements,
  • display of work via collaborative and personal blogs,
  • use of open educational resources from digital repositories,

while it further provides digital “tools” to support teaching and learning.

e-me was initiated in Greece. It was designed and developed by “CTI DIOPHANTUS”, the technical body of the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs (MoE). e-me is one of the two official platforms that is provided by the Greek Ministry of Education to all schools, teachers and pupils in Greece, as a national asynchronous learning platform.

In Greece, e-me is available in two installations (editions): the official e-me (, which is a closed system provided only to teachers and pupils with the use of their school accounts, and “e-me for all” edition (, which is open and free to everyone via registration.

The current installation of e-me ( is the European edition of “e-me for all”.

European edition of e-me is open and free to anyone interested in Europe, schools, teachers, pupils, parents, academics, institutions, etc. It was customized in the context of the PAFSE project (PArtnerships For Science Education) and it supports four languages ​​(English, Greek, Portuguese and Polish).

The European edition of e-me expands use of Digital Educational Platform e-me in Europe.

Photodentro PAFSE

Photodentro PAFSE ( is a European Educational Resource Repository for hosting, organizing, systematically classifying, documenting, and disseminating STEM digital learning resources.

It was developed in the context of the PAFSE (PArtnerships for Science Education) European Project, initially to host all learning resources for Health Education that will be developed or identified/customized in the context of the project. After the end of the project, the repository will serve as a European Repository of STEM learning resources for Public Health Education.

Photodentro PAFSE repository supports free text search, browsing through collections of learning resources, browsing using a domain specific hierarchy of terms for public health issues targeting K-12 education, and structured search using multiple filters. It also supports ratings and comments by registered users. To describe and index the learning resources, Photodentro PAFSE makes use of metadata based on the IEEE LOM international specification (IEEE, 2002). All learning resources of the Photodentro PAFSE repository are freely available under the Creative Commons’ Attribution – Non-Commercial – Share Alike license. Photodentro PAFSE also provides a form-based environment for registered users to upload, classify, document, describe, and publish new resources.

The implementation of the Photodentro PAFSE Repository is based on the Photodentro Greek National Learning Resource Repository Infrastructure for K12 Education, that is provided under the Photodentro Software as a Service (Saas) model by CTI. It is based on DSpace, an open source platform for building digital repositories, and it provides an Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) to ensure interoperability with other Repositories.
