This webinar will highlight the strong potential of digital cultural heritage in education and will introduce teachers to Europeana, Europe’s platform for digital cultural heritage. Europeana currently provides free access to over 50 million cultural records coming from more than 3,500 museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections across Europe. Learners of all ages can find images/text/audio/video/ 3D content on anything from art, science, history, natural history, fashion and more in over 30 languages. A big part of our collections – over 20 million items- is openly licensed and can be freely reused in educational settings.
The seminar aims to inspire educators to explore Europeana’s rich and diverse digital resources – from thematic collections, virtual exhibitions and galleries – and to help them to search and find useful content for the Crowdreaming project. Finally, it will cover topics like copyright and licenses that allow educational reuse, and how educators should credit Europeana content when they use it.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday , Feb 12, 2020 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM (CET)
