The integration of digital cultural heritage in the classroom is increasingly important as the 21st century brings further opportunities for digital teaching and learning. While the national curriculum can differ from country to country within the European Union, the demand to understand our common European history, cultural heritage and challenges for the future stays all-encompassing.

To integrate cultural heritage into the classroom, the Europeana Foundation has been working with European Schoolnet for the last five years on providing teacher training via MOOCs and webinars, creating and testing learning material, and organizing a growing community of teachers.
