Mainly, in this learning scenario, students learn primary features of solids such as shape, angles and edges. In addition, they also learn how to calculate solids’ volume and surface area. This interdisciplinary learning scenario builds connections between art, photography, history, mathematics and Euclidian Geometry. As the students are going to create their own collections by taking photos, visual literacy and creativity are the other aspects of this learning scenario. This way, students learn how to use Europeana collections.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
