The activity of the interactive narration, aimed to investigate how children understand the values conveyed through the fairy tale as well as how these values ​​are reflected in their daily lives.
The VAST Project has selected the fairy tales area as a basic pilot of its research regarding transforming fundamental European values through space and time. This is because fairytales are a vivid depiction of moral values’ presence in a society with a significant, according to research, impact on children’s consciousness and moral development. The reason behind the choice of this fairy tale is that it is a well-known story expected to be familiar to the participants, facilitating them to identify the emerging values.
