Starting in March 2021, a new online course by Europeana in collaboration with European Schoolnet Academy, aiming at empowering the connection between #culturalheritage and the digital world, and enhancing teaching practice concerning digital education and digital technologies.

This online course will explore the educational potential of digital cultural heritage, improving teachers’ and educators’ understanding so they can efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices, regardless of the subject they teach. The final goal is to design engaging and deep-learning content for students, museumgoers, or lifelong learners to prepare them as active and responsible citizens with key competencies to thrive in life.

If you are a teacher in primary and secondary or a museum educator, you will have the unique chance to explore Europeana’s digitised collection of cultural heritage, the learning scenarios from the Teaching with Europeana blog, various tools like Transcribathon and Historiana and other ready-made materials that they can easily integrate in their educational activities. To help participants, the #DigitalEducationMOOC offers a selection of videos with tested learning scenarios designed by educators from different countries.
