eTwinning Seminar: Making Historical Thinking Explicit to Students Using Online Tools
June 25, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
On 14 May, EuroClio hosted an eTwinning seminar on how to use the Historiana e-Activity builder in combination with the Europeana Collections. If you were not able to attend this first edition, don’t panic! On 25 June, we will host the second edition of the eTwinning online seminar, to explain how you can design learning activities with Historiana, using sources from the Europeana Collections.
As a history, heritage, or citizenship educator, you are quite likely already familiar with the Europeana Collections. The platform holds an incredible amount of useful sources, all accessible for free. Moreover, for every source, copyright information is provided as a guide for how to use the material. In short, the Europeana Collections are an extremely useful resource for educators who want to use more (digitised) primary sources in their lessons.
However, in order to unlock the full potential of the Europeana Collections, it is important to learn how to navigate this platform. This is why EuroClio, in collaboration with Europeana, is hosting trainings to bring these skills to teachers throughout Europe.
The main aim of the eTwinning seminar is to support educators to use online learning activities created or adapted by themselves in order to help their students to think historically. At the end of the seminar, the participants will know how the Historiana e-Activity Builder works in practice and what kind of historical sources are available on Historiana, as well as be equipped with concrete ideas for the creation of their own eLearning Activities. The source collections that will be used and presented during the seminar are already available on Historiana!
