We strongly believe that heritage photography and digital cultural heritage in general have a huge potential for empowering education at all levels. This Educational portal gives access to resources and outstanding initiatives that leverage on such potential to support teaching and learning. Pictures, videos, texts and other online resources and available tools can make a difference in designing a new educational scenario where European cultural heritage is easily integrated in the different learning paths. This portal wants to collect and showcase the most interesting and replicable examples.
