Thanks to the contribution of 130 teachers from across Europe and beyond, educators will find new ready-to-use learning scenarios and stories on how to integrate digital culture in education every week on our new blog.
The 'Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competencies with digital cultural heritage' MOOC is back in an additional two national languages. If you want to learn how to make use of Europe’s cultural heritage for education in Spanish or Portuguese, join the course and spread the word in your network.
We believe that a stronger link between the cultural and education sectors is both vital and mutually beneficial. That’s why, over the last year or so, we (the Europeana Foundation’s Reuse team) have been asking questions to our educational audiences and listening carefully to their answers.
The information we have gleaned will help data providers to better understand and cater to the needs of teachers and students by providing high-quality cultural data in relevant formats and on relevant topics. This will translate into more happy educators and more inspiring examples of reuse of their collections in educational settings of all types.
#HackCultura2019 encourages Italian school students to take charge of their national cultural heritage - tangible, intangible and digital - through the development of digital products. It is an initiative of The Digital Cultural Heritage, Arts and Humanities School network (DiCultHer) in cooperation with the Italian ministries of education (Miur) and culture (MiBAC), INDIRE, Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo Unico (ICCU), Scholas Ocurrentes, Rai Cultura and Europeana.
The first Europeana Education MOOC, ‘Europeana in your classroom’, delivered by European Schoolnet (EUN), ran between 30 April – 15 June 2018. The course introduced participants to the Europeana platform to help them build learning scenarios using digital culture and fostering the 21st-century skills.
After a first successful edition last year, 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 introduce them to new concepts such as project-based learning or STEAM.
The MOOC is meant to enhance teachers’ cultural and digital competence and practices, improving their understanding of Cultural Heritage in order to efficiently integrate digital culture into their lessons and practices, regardless of the subject they usually teach.
