What is Europeana?

Europeana is Europe’s platform for digital cultural heritage, empowering the cultural heritage sector in its digital transformation. Through its website, millions of cultural heritage items from around 4,000 institutions across Europe are available online. Europeana also works to share and promote this heritage so that it can be used and enjoyed by people across the world. Teachers and learners of all ages can find images, text, audio, video, and 3D content on anything from art to science, in over 37 languages. A big part of the collections – over 20 million items – is openly licensed and can be freely reused in education.

What does it mean to be part of the Europeana Education User Group?

Recruited members of the User Group will be required to support the project by carrying out any of the following actions:

  • Create one new Learning Scenario based on an agreed topic, using Europeana content,
  • Write a Story of Implementation from the experience of implementing own or a colleague’s Learning Scenario for the Teaching with Europeana blog,
  • Comment on the Stories of Implementation and Learning Scenarios of other colleagues based on their own testing experience.

Furthermore, selected teachers should cover a range of disciplines and curriculum topics. They should also have experience in producing learning resources. Sufficient knowledge of English (understanding, writing, reading, and listening) and an interest in creating cultural content are also required.
