Our City on Europeana (LS-PL-530)

How EU funds are changing the city

Introduction to Europeana

The aim of the classes was to show young people another source in their search for knowledge. Europeana is a reliable and proven source, where universities, libraries, schools and museums publish their resources. All materials published there are of the highest quality so that the teacher does not have to worry about it. During the lesson, the portal was described in short words and various facts were checked using the Europeana. The conducted classes were held during an educational hour in class 1 of the Mechatronics Technical School in Grudziądz, by means of online communication (MSTeams – standard in distance teaching in Grudziądz schools).

The course of the lessons

The classes were divided into four main stages. The first stage gave a theoretical introduction to Europeana and presented the necessary materials, brainstormed the lesson ideas and divided the classes into groups. Information about the city on a topic related to the lesson was presented.

In the second stage, the students worked in groups, searching for pictures about the city on the Europeana website and comparing them with those obtained in other places.

The third stage was to search for new information about the city on the Europeana portal.

The fourth stage was also homework so that as much of the work as possible was included in the next lesson during individual presentations. The presentation included photo collages of how the city had changed over the years thanks to EU funds.
