History educators from EUROCLIO – European Association of History Educators, and professional web developers from Webtic, are working on the development of a new online learning environment. Part of the Europeana DSI2 project, it aims to enable educators to create learning activities in their own language, using and rearranging building blocks specifically designed for history education practice. Integrated in the current historiana.eu website, this learning environment will help educators make the best use of digital cultural heritage’s learning potential, regardless of their confidence with digital tools. EUROCLIO and Webtic are currently working to implement the Europeana for Education Policy Recommendations with developers of educational resources to build, test and promote tools and services that can be used in all languages. The online learning environment will be presented to the wider public during the 24th Annual Conference of EUROCLIO in Donostia – San Sebastián (Spain) from 2-7 April 2017, and used for the workshop Find out how insanely easy creating your own online learning activities for history can be. EUROCLIO will then continue to work with educators from its network to demonstrate how to create online learning activities with the content from Europeana.
