The “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” MOOC will improve teacher’s understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate this topic into their lessons and practices, regardless of the subject they usually teach.
The integration of digital cultural heritage in the classroom is increasingly important as the 21st century brings further opportunities for digital teaching and learning. While the national curriculum can differ from country to country, the demand to understand our common European history, cultural heritage and challenges for the future stays all-encompassing. Digital cultural heritage can be used not only while teaching Arts, History or Literature, but it also gives an excellent basis for teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
The MOOC will introduce participants to the Europeana platform, where they will find different resources for educators such as pictures, videos, texts and various tools that they can easily integrate in their lessons. Moreover, the course will help teachers to build learning scenarios using digital cultural heritage, in a framework of 21st-century skills.
Additionally, it will offer a selection of tested classroom activities and resources from different European countries to empower primary and secondary teachers in introducing cultural heritage in the classroom and help them reflect on their own practices.
