Working together to raise awareness about the educational value of digital cultural heritage, the Europeana Foundation (EF) and European Schoolnet (EUN) are sharing a common vision. Digital cultural heritage has an essential role to play in education, research and innovation. It can enrich both formal and informal educational experiences.
As a result, EUN has been involved in the fourth Europeana Digital Service Infrastructures (DSI) project. Started in September 2018, the project aims to engage with teachers to raise awareness about the educational value of Europeana, to embed the use of digital learning resources in their classrooms, and to build a sustainable network of educators.
For this purpose, multiple steps have been taken over the past few months. Among them are the creation of the Europeana Ambassador network and the Europeana Education User Group, who together give the basis of the Europeana Education Community; the launch of the Teaching with Europeana blog in March 2019; the rerun of the ‘Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage’ MOOC, and its translation to both Spanish and Portuguese.
To discover more about the actions that have been keeping EUN and more than 140 teachers busy during this first year of the Europeana DSI-4 project, see you soon on Europeana Pro.
