Heritage is explained in UNESCO documents as “our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations.” A heritage is something that is, or should be, passed from generation to generation because it is valued. In this learning scenario students will learn the importance of preserving cultural heritage for current and future generations. It is also aimed to teach them the ancient civilizations and their artworks such as rock art and rock relief. They will work individually or in groups to search Europeana’s digital cultural heritage resources and share the works of rock art and rock relief in the class.
This learning scenario has been developed during the “Digital Education with 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.
