Rerun of ‘Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage’
After a first successful edition, we are happy to announce the rerun of the Europeana in your classroom MOOC, which aims to build upon teachers’ knowledge of European cultural heritage and apply it with concepts such as project-based learning or STEAM.
The “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” MOOC will improve teacher’s understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate this topic into their lessons and practices, regardless of the subject they usually teach.
In this MOOC, participants will:
- Understand why it is important to integrate European cultural heritage in education
- Learn how to use Europeana Collections to teach their subjects
- Learn how to navigate the Europeana Collections website
- Explore and become familiarized with the various Europeana apps, tools and materials
- Learn how to build learning activities using Europeana Collections resources
The course is organised around the principle of peer learning, with course content designed to stimulate reflection and discussion so that participants can learn from each other’s experiences and ideas. In order to complete the course, participants are required to submit a final course product and review their peers’ work. To facilitate peer learning, a closed Facebook group has been set up.
The course is developed for teachers, student teachers and teacher trainers at all levels and of all subjects in mind. It is especially valuable for teachers with an interest in Cultural Heritage. Other educational professionals and stakeholders, such as heads of schools, school support staff, and policymakers with an interest in the topic are also welcome to join.
This course starts on 14 January 2019 but registering is already possible through the course page. The course will run for 5 weeks – with modules opening one by one each week, followed by a 1,5 week grace period. The estimated workload is 3-4 hours per week.
The course is available on the European Schoolnet Academy. Please create an account if you do not have one already!
Participants will receive digital module badges for every completed module of the course as well as a course badge and a course certificate upon completion of the full course. All badges can be exported to the Mozilla Badge Backpack.
