The learning scenario takes a cross-curricular approach.
By the end of the lesson, students develop all language skills (reading, listening, speaking, writing). They will learn to recognize the historical, cultural and aesthetic value of mathematics by applying it in different disciplines and activities as well as the inescapable role of mathematics in the development and welfare of society. Students develop self-confidence and awareness of their mathematical abilities, perseverance, entrepreneurship, responsiveness, appreciation and positive attitude towards mathematics and work in general.
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.
