Show & Tell & Touch: Digital Culture and Education – Brussels 13 May 2016

Show & Tell & Touch: Digital Culture and Education – Brussels 13 May 2016

Contemporary education, formal classrooms, museum educational programmes, lifelong learning are all increasingly embracing ‘the digital’. As more and more arts and culture artefacts become available in this digital space, it was only a matter of time before the two worlds, heritage and education, would find each other. But have they really?

Show & Tell & Touch: Digital Culture and Education, presented by the EuropeanaSpace Project, aims to reflect on how digital cultural content may be creatively re-used in an educational setting. This interactive and involved re-use not only improve the quality of education but engages younger audiences in a way more in sync with their daily lives. Premiere speakers from around Europe discussed first class examples of digital culture education in practice, looked at current trends in the field as well as (European) politics and set the scene for facilitating reuse.
