Two Project Results are planned:
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;
The From Archive to Alive online platform, where there will be a contest for students to produce digital works of art that will draw inspiration from the EUscreen digital audio-visual archives and will revolve around inclusion or the environment.
Result 1: Art Vision e-learning course
The Art Vision e-learning course will be targeted at secondary education teachers, and it will focus on how they can use digital audio-visual archives and incorporate them into their lessons and school projects.
The emphasis of the project will be on archives of the EUscreen platform and especially content that deals with the themes of civic engagement, inclusion and environmental awareness. The EUscreen platform offers free online access to thousands of items of audio-visual heritage from major European audio-visual archives, public broadcasters and other providers. EUcreen provides an insight into the social, cultural, political and economic events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries.
Through the course, teachers will have the capacity to explore digital archives in the EUscreen platform, design interdisciplinary lessons and projects, boost student engagement, motivation and creativity and be 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 online platform will be specifically designed for the project, that will host both the European contest and the digital art works of the students.
After the platform is established, there will be an open call for students who wish 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 will be both for students of the participating countries, as well as for EU countries outside the consortium.
Each entry must 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 the EUscreen platform ;
-To deal with the topics of civic engagement, social inclusion or environmental awareness.
The uploaded digital art works will be displayed in a gallery form and each entry will contain, apart from the work itself, a title, the name of the student (or group of students) that created it, the specific video(s) of EUscreen that it drew inspiration from and the country of the entry.
Visitors will be able to filter the entries on the basis of all the above traits, and during the contest, they will be able to vote their favourite individual entries and their favourite group entries for each one of the contest themes.
