Europeana and European Schoolnet working together to bring digital cultural heritage to classrooms

Since 2015, European Schoolnet (EUN) and the Europeana Foundation have been working together to bring digital cultural heritage to as many classrooms as possible. In the past year, the following projects have been developed through this collaboration.

The Europeana Ambassador Network

13 selected Teacher Ambassadors from 12 different countries (and the European Schools) have developed teaching materials that incorporate Europeana content and integrate digital cultural heritage in the classroom, covering topics such as virtual reality, migration, propaganda, European identity and critical thinking.

The Europeana Education User Group

The members of the Group (130 dedicated teachers) create and test ready-to-use teaching resources using digital cultural heritage and share their experiences on the Teaching with Europeana blog.

The Teaching with Europeana blog

The blog is a platform where teachers can share their experiences in incorporating digital cultural heritage in the classroom.

Massive Open Online Courses

From the ‘Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage’ MOOC, teachers can learn about the importance of integrating European cultural heritage into education and how to employ Europeana Collection resources in their teaching activities.
