In summary, two Project Results have been produced:
1. An e-learning course for teachers that will show them how to design lessons and projects through the use of the digital audio-visual archives; Register for the course
2. A From Archive to Alive online platform, where a contest for students to produce digital works of art took place in 2023 that drew inspiration from the digital audio-visual archives and revolved around themes of inclusion or the environment. Visit the platform
Result 1:The Art Vision e-learning course
The Art Vision e-learning course is targeted at secondary education teachers, and it focused on how the teachers can use digital audio-visual archives and incorporate them into their lessons and school projects.
The emphasis has been on the archives of European platforms and especially related to content that deals with the themes of civic engagement, inclusion and environmental awareness.
The European platforms offer free online access to thousands of items of audio-visual heritage from major European audio-visual archives, public broadcasters and other providers. They provide an insight into the social, cultural, political and economic events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries.
Through the course, teachers have the capacity to explore platforms with European digital archives, design interdisciplinary lessons and projects, in order to boost student engagement, motivation and creativity. Students are also made aware of the proper use of the various copyright licenses that can be found relating to archival material.
Result 2: From Archive to Alive online platform
An attractive online platform has been specifically designed for the project, in order to host both the European contest and the digital art works of the students. Visit the Contest Home Page
As this platform is now established, in 2023 an open call for students was made to take part in the contest, whether individually or in groups, as well as for teachers who want to become official curators of groups.
The call was both for students of the participating countries, as well as for EU countries outside the consortium.
Each entry was required to fulfil 3 main requirements:
-To be a work of digital art, therefore containing any type of digital elements (it therefore can’t have a physical form);
-To be based on material found on European archives;
-To deal with the topics of civic engagement, social inclusion or environmental awareness.
The uploaded digital art works have been displayed in a gallery form and each entry contained, apart from the work itself, a title, the name of the student (or group of students) that created it, the specific resources that it drew inspiration from and the country of the entry.
Visitors were able to vote for their favourite individual entries and their favourite group entries..Visit the Contest Home Page
