PROJECT: The History Education Pilot Takes Off

The European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO) is collaborating on a project aimed at re-using the digitized cultural heritage resources of Europeana.

The history education pilot will offer history educators easy-to-find and free-to-use educational resources (sources, learning activities and tools) that are designed to stimulate historical thinking, multiperspectivity and active learning.

The focus of the history education pilot will be on the re-use of content that is relevant for the First World War. Material will be selected from Europeana projects, such as Europeana1914-1918 and the European Digital Film Gateway and used for the development of learning activities. The sources and learning activities are organised around content areas that highlight different aspects of the war, such as “Experiencing and Reporting the War” and “Remembering the War”.

The project is part of Europeana Creative, which “sets the stage for fascinating collaborations between content-providing cultural heritage institutions and creative industries stakeholders in the education, tourism, social networks and design sectors.”
