Get ready for the Europeana Education Competition 2023
In collaboration with the 2023 STEM Discovery Campaign, the Europeana Education Competition 2023 is open to all teachers in primary, secondary and post-secondary education, VET and special education of any subject, museum educators, and other CHI professionals (like librarians, archivists, curators and other non-formal educators) – to find innovative ways of using Europeana arts and digital science heritage in their educational activities and share their story of implementation about it!
The Europeana Collections are an online database that can be easily employed for online activities. Why not check out Historiana or Transcribathon? You can liven any educational activity with these online tools. On the Teaching with Europeana blog you can already find some learning scenarios and stories of implementation that have been partially or fully virtually organized.
How can you participate?
To participate in the Competition, teachers need to submit a Story of Implementation, using the Story of Implementation template. To submit their entries, participants must follow the next steps:
