Organized by the Department of Education, Cultural heritage and Tourism at the University of Macerata, the first round table of the Erasmus+ project I² Identity and Innovation is planned on 27-28-29-30 September 2021 as an online event.

The choice of a virtual meeting is due to the uncertainities of the covid-19 pandemic, nevertheless the rich programme of online seminars will explore for anyone interested key topics such as:

Which is the value of the school heritage, tangible and/or intangible heritage, and in particular the built heritage (historical school buildings), for the future citizens’ education?

How can teachers work on key competences in a creative way by using cultural heritage as an instrument to develop educational tools and learning materials that allow:
a. To promote creativity and innovation (i.e. transversal key competences),
b. To reach – at the same time – the necessary goals in education i.e. by developing disciplinary knowledge and competences following both the national standards and the European Reference Framework for Key Competences (EC 2018).
