Sharing is caring: Let your migration story be heard (EN-CUR-616)
This learning scenario (LS) mainly focuses on raising students’ awareness of migration and refugeeism through the process of exploring real-life migration stories cited in Europeana. Additionally, students self-reflect on their own existing migration stories or potential ones in the future as student-migrants and focus on the narratives about personal objects that connect them with their family, origin, past, and culture. In order to develop mutual respect and solidarity in today’s societies, students make solid arguments to promote the sharing of migration stories either by posting online either by physical presence during the Europeana Migration Collection Days.
One of the main reasons for selecting the migration topic was that Greece and other European countries in the past have been and still continue to be countries of origin and/or host countries for migrants so it was intended the LS to focus on a global issue that has a great impact on our everyday lives. If not follow the suggested course of activities, most of the activities can be implemented separately.
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.
