WEBINAR 1 - Cultural heritage and schools

Get inspired by Cultural Heritage!

Tuesday 27 March 2018, 17:00h CEST  |  Duration: 1 hour

The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 puts the spotlight on Europe’s rich and diverse history and traditions, showcasing its role in fostering a shared sense of identity and building the future of Europe.

Cultural institutions (museums, art galleries, theatres, dance and music companies, and even sport clubs) are increasingly developing their services and providing schools, young people and families with more opportunities to explore, play and interact with the site or the artefacts. Often empowered by ICT, schools, teachers and providers of cultural experiences have numerous creative ways to allow students to explore what our cultural heritage is, what does it mean and how it can help us to shape the future.

Join the School Education Gateway webinar "Get inspired by Cultural Heritage" on 27 March to learn more about this important topic! Get inspired and learn what kind of ‘cultural spices’ educators can add to their school and classroom projects!
