Learning from the past, designing our future: Europe’s cultural heritage through eTwinning

The 2018 eTwinning book, dedicated to bringing cultural heritage to the classroom.

The aim of the book is to unfold the various aspects of cultural heritage and to offer examples of eTwinning projects – many of them involving Eastern partner countries – as well as ideas for activities related to cultural heritage.

In the first section, you will find out what is meant by cultural heritage and be introduced to heritage interpretation as a learning approach.

The second section presents examples of inspirational eTwinning projects dealing with the tangible, intangible, digital and natural aspects of cultural heritage.

The third section provides resources offered by Europeana: the European Union digital platform for cultural heritage. Also, it offers ideas for class activities that are linked to different subjects, from history to astronomy and from maths to languages.

In the last section, you will find out how your students can learn about history and heritage using the resources of the House of European History. You will also discover how the eTwinning and UNESCO schools can promote cultural heritage by organising activities in and outside the school community.
