The main objective of this project is to develop a HistoryLab that integrates digital resources, teaching and learning units, and methodological training blocks in emerging technologies for history teachers. The specific aims are:
1. To Create a joint curriculum document for a common framework of cross-cutting contents allowing a multicultural, inclusive and social and gender approach in equality.
2. To Create a library of digital resources and 35 teaching and learning units on European history, through active learning methods and emerging technologies from a multicultural, inclusive and social and gender approach in equality.
3. To Create four online modules to train history teachers in the use of digital resources and new teaching methodologies. Module 1 will contain training activities on emerging technologies. Module 2 will contain activities on active learning methods. Module 3 will contain activities on planning teaching and learning units. Module 4 will contain activities on learning assessment.
4. To Design and validate the effectiveness of HistoryLab e-Toolkit. Through an educational intervention using the e-Toolkit among history teachers in initial training and practicing The four intellectual outputs proposed will improve the skills on active-learning methods and the use of digital resources for History teachers.
Another result expected is to create stronger ties between European universities dedicated to teacher training from a transnational perspective. After the elaboration of the e-Toolkit, we intend that the HistoryLab can serve for the sustainability of the project gathering experiences and ideas from other territorial realities, expanding the participating organizations. Also we will create collaboration networks between history researchers, universities dedicated to the training of history teachers, regional educational entities, school management teams, and associations of Secondary Education teachers. The Project will enable to establish collaborating frameworks for the transfer of academic and educational knowledge built in Higher Education to Secondary Education and European and national educational authorities.
