History teacher EUROCLIO - European Association of History Educators Iceland Education

I am a historian and hold a master’s degree in education. I have been a history teacher for the last 30 years in an upper secondary school in Iceland as well as a teacher trainer. I joined the board of EUROCLIO - European Association of History Educators in 2012 and was president of the association for two years, 2016-2018. I contributed to Historiana, an on-line educational multimedia tool developed by EUROCLIO to offer teachers and students multi-perspective, cross-border and comparative historical sources to supplement their national textbooks. Historiana uses sources from the Europeana collection. I have also been an active member of the board of History Teachers Association of Iceland.
