This month on Europeana Pro News, as the academic year draws to a close, we’re looking back to see what we, and our education community, have learned over the last months. Today, Ivana Štiglec, an English and German teacher, moderator for the Europeana Massive Open Online Course, and a Europeana Teacher Ambassador in Croatia, gives us her top three lessons learned.
Cultural heritage has an essential role to play in education, research and innovation, because it can enrich both formal and informal educational experiences. Since 2015, European Schoolnet (EUN) and the Europeana Foundation have been working together, sharing a common vision: to bring digital cultural heritage to as many classrooms as possible. Here’s what we’ve achieved together over the last year.
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.
#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.
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.
