Call for Teachers for the Europeana Education User Group

Are you a primary or secondary teacher? Do you use cultural resources in your classroom? European Schoolnet is looking for 130 teachers* from Croatia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey to join the Europeana Education User Group between January 2019 to August 2020.

Europeana is Europe's digital platform for cultural heritage, providing free online access to over 53 million digitised items drawn from Europe's museums, archives, libraries and galleries. The selected teachers will be required to support the project by developing one new learning scenario using Europeana content per project year (project year 1: January 2019 – August 2019; year 2: October 2019-August 2020). Additionally, they will need to implement theirs and at least one of their colleagues' learning scenarios in their classroom and write a blog post based on the learning scenario created. Finally, teachers will be asked to write a Story of Implementation based on the experience of implementing a colleague's learning scenario for the Teaching with Europeana blog and comment on the stories of implementation and learning scenarios of other colleagues.

Selected teachers should cover a range of disciplines and curriculum topics, should be experienced in producing learning resources, should have sufficient knowledge of English (understanding, writing, reading and listening) and an interest in creating cultural content.

Why should you participate?

At the end of each project year, the 30 most active Europeana Education User Group teachers will be invited to a Europeana DSI-4 Teacher workshop taking place in the Future Classroom Lab, with all transport and accommodation expenses covered.

Deadline to participate: until all places are covered. Places still available for: France, Hungary and Finland.
