The Historiana Historical Content and Learning editing teams both came together for the first time in over a year in Tallinn, Estonia from 25-27 August to work on the final stage of the World War 1 module that is under development since the beginning of 2013 and set the future for Historiana. The meeting took place in the Institute of Education of the University of Tallinn, which simultaneously organised a teacher training seminar for over 40 Estonian history educators. Historiana Editor-in-Chief Bob Stradling presented the World War 1 module and the new learning section to this group, which were received with great enthusiasm.
Historiana - Your Portal to the Past
On 10-11 October the first meeting of the new Historiana project ‘Decisions and Dilemmas: teaching about the EU from a historical perspective’ took place in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. The project entails three parts: ‘the long search for a lasting peace’, ‘life after World War 2’, and ‘the EU in the context of a changing world’ and will result in historical content and learning activities including role play and decisions making activities that will feature on the Historiana website. The meeting marked a unique moment, as it is the first Historiana project in which the development of historical content and learning activities is a collaborative effort by the whole development team.
