Nikolaos Fahantidis, Dr Ifigenia Vamvakidou.

Historic painting analysis consists a new methodological tool as well as an important teaching tool for young students, because it helps in visualization of our historic past. This paper describes a use of information and communication technology (ICT) in teaching history in Greece. Elementary school students try to decode the signs of visual text and they try to read specific historical resources in order to place them into the historical frame. This one composes local history’s events, historic persons and historic behavior. The choice and the presentation of historic materials using ICT help students to learn how to learn in the level of scientific history.
In this approach we use a software tool, which implement researching learning in modern history. Our proposal focuses on designing educational program using multimedia in connection to school book. We implement specific activities in order to realize the historic region and historic season.
