EuroClio starts new partner project for Historiana

Europeana Creative is a project funded by the European Union and coordinated by the Austrian National Library with EuroClio as a partner organisation. The project aims to support and promote the re-use of cultural resources that are made available via Europeana – a website that provides access to digital resources of Europe’s museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections. Europeana Creative will stimulate the use of this wealth of digitised material by creative industries active in Design, History Education, Natural History Education, Social Media and Tourism.

Within Europeana Creative, EuroClio and WEBtic will work together to develop innovative online learning activities, making use of Europeana content and services. A group of history educators from Europe and beyond will be actively involved in the development and testing of the online learning activities. The results of this pilot will be integrated in and disseminated via the Historiana website, the EuroClio on-line educational multimedia tool that offers students (aged 14 and older) an ever-growing number of multi-perspective sources, comparative case studies, and innovative teaching material developed by EuroClio and WEBtic.
The project will be implemented from 1 February 2013 until 31 July 2015 in partnership with a unique mix of archives, museums, NGO’s, webdevelopers and other creative industries from 14 different countries.
