Paralympic Heroes: “Spirit in Motion” (EN-CUR-664)

The Paralympic Games are elite sports events for athletes with various disabilities. The emphasis is firmly placed on the participants’ athletic achievements and not their disability. Starting from the Olympic Games London 2012, the host city is required to host the Paralympic Games as well, within one month of the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games.

This Learning Scenario introduces students to a variety of Paralympians and Para-athletes. The activities aim to inspire students and break down misconceptions about disability and ability.

This learning scenario has been developed during the “Digital Education with 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.
