Strike a match for Education 1821 Greek Revolution History Platform

Strike a match for Education 1821 Greek Revolution History Platform. An online web platform providing an interactive educational community tool.

Personal Cinema & Collaborators, in collaboration with Europeana Foundation and Goteo Foundation, announce the launch of a matchfunding campaign on the crowdfunding platform Goteo.org, in the frame context of #Europeana4Education.

1821 Greek Revolution History Platform” is the title of the project proposed by the Greek media arts collective Personal Cinema & Collaborators, in response to the international open-call held by Europeana Foundation, through which 3 innovative projects were selected to be funded at #Europeana4Education until June, 25. In this call, for each EUR donated by the crowd, Europeana will contribute 1 EUR match funding with a maximum of 100 EUR per individual donation.

The project’s principal goal is the creation of an online educational platform that provides students and teachers with a tool for an innovative and playful approach to European historical heritage. Through the reuse of Europeana’s content, based on the pre and post revolutionary period of the Greek War of Independence, the online web platform will function as an active participatory media to approach the cognitive field of history.

The project will be useful for research purposes, such as universities, research centers, related to history education. This means that the platform can constitute a powerful, innovative and at the same playfully engaging tool, useful for teachers who can create their educational scenarios, and test their methodology as well as for pupils and students who will be able to compare the content of 2D representations and 3D simulations with other sources and discover the structuring of the historical narratives. The platform could be used as a tool for designing distant learning, or sharing educational lessons regarding the Greek Revolution and its impact on Europe and the world. The content of the platform will be available to the public through a Creative Common (CC) license. A CC license is used when an author wants to give people the right to share, use, and build upon a work that he has created.

Europeana Foundation holds the EU digital platform for cultural heritage. More than 3,000 institutions across Europe (galleries, museums, libraries, archives and audiovisual collections) have contributed to Europeana Collection. Together, their assembled collections let users explore Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage from prehistory to the modern day, aiming to build on Europe’s rich heritage and make it easier for people to use, whether for work, for learning or just for fun by providing them access to more than 54 million digitalized items.
