Contempormy teaching requires a connection with events in our everyday lives. The reasons for this are: (1) the enormous advances which have taken place this century; and (2) increasing competitiveness. Astronomy is an interdisciplinary science and is related to various subjects, such as (in order of increasing relation to astronomy): economics, technology, geology, biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. By using in the classroom all these aspects of astronomy we can enhance students' interest and overcome the problems we face daily in the classroom. Astronomy education, and education in general, must be related to the classroom environment shown in Figure 1. With this in mind we began three years ago to further develop astronomy education in Greece. Some of our activities are outlined in this paper.
