Europeana DSI 3

The Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure phase 3 (DSI3) project will continue the work of its predecessors DSI1 and DSI2 in tackling the question of “how to unlock the potential for use of digital heritage for (history) education?”. Within this, there will be a focus on web development and the further integration of Europeana and Historiana in order to make them more user-friendly, thus allowing for their optimal use in history education. The project will aim to develop teaching resources across the two platforms, as well as teacher training guides on the use of these platforms and resources.

Project Aims

The project aims to facilitate the optimization of Europeana and Historiana resources in history education, through:

  • The development of content to be used in an eLearning environment
  • The creation of a strategy for teacher training in the use of this environment
  • Developing a strategy for the continuous testing of the Historiana facility with users (teachers and students)
  • Aiding in website development in accordance with addressing the key issues that have been identified over the course of DSI1 and DSI2

Expected Outcomes

The project will aim to arrive at the following concrete outputs:

  • 14 e-Learning activities and 12 source collections on Historiana using Europeana content
  • A training package for teachers regarding the use of the e-Learning environment on Historiana, using Europeana content
  • 7 Europeana specialised workshops for teachers within existing training events of EUROCLIO and/or EUROCLIO’s member associations
  • 2 online eTwinning events on how to use the Historiana e-Learning Environment with Europeana content
