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.
The potential for use of digital heritage in education is widely acknowledged, but in order to ensure this use offering access to this heritage is not enough. Sources need to be selected, contextualised, and crucially become part of learning activities for students. Europeana and the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO) worked together to inspire and support educators to create their own learning activities.
