Development and the Types of Press (EN-CUR-384)

Men working at a printing press, and setting type. Woodcut.

When the first printing press was created? How did it evolve? How books were multiplied in the Middle Ages? What types of prints exist today? Will digital media replace print media (magazines, newspapers, comics, flyers, posters)? These are the questions that this learning scenario deals with. During the lesson, students will be able to distinguish the different types of press and prints.

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.
