During the TeachMeet session at the Summer Conference, about thirty attendants learned about the Historiana eLearning Environment, and the tools that history, heritage, and citizenship educators are able to use in class.
Many teachers at the conference expressed the wish for more international cooperation and exchange, and the introduction of better digital tools and international topics in history education. At the TeachMeet, Helen Snelson and Richard Kennett presented the basic functionalities of the Historiana eActivity Builder, the tools that are already developed, and the tools that the team of web developers is currently working on. Besides that, they showed exemplar content and learning activities that were developed within the Innovating History Education for All project.
