Europeana Education. An initiative to integrate cultural heritage in education
In collaboration with European Schoolnet, Europeana has produced a short publication addressed to Ministries of Education and other stakeholders in the domain. The aim is to introduce Europeana's activities and educational offer to promote the use of digital cultural heritage in learning environments.
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.
