‘Portraits’ is a learning scenario for Art and ESL students. Students get familiar with the portraits that were famous during different historical times, they get to know their authors and style. This will serve as an inspiration to create their own AR portraits. Students will be to attach a video with a description, using the foreign language.
English and Arts
The learning scenario takes a cross-curricular approach. From the Art perspective, students learn about famous artistic images and painters, they also create some portraits. From the English as a Second Language perspective, students describe portraits using new vocabulary and the structure he/she has got. Portraits are linked to the current learning outcomes in primary schools.
Setting up an exhibition
Students created their own Augmented Reality Portraits and they displayed them on the school corridor walls.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” 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.
