Today I am writing to let you know about a very powerful platform called Europeana.
Europeana is Europe's digital platform for cultural heritage. It provides free, online access to over 50 million digital records coming from over 3,700 libraries, museums, archives and galleries across Europe. Europeana features art from over 3,000 institutions across Europe, from the likes of Rijksmuseum, the British Library and the Louvre, as well as local museums from every corner of the European Union. Highlights include Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, and music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Undoubtedly, a very helpful source for those teachers implementing Art both at Primary and Secondary levels. Click here to see the Art-Europeana collection.
Europeana offers a Music collection which includes recordings, pieces of sheet music and other music items from across Europe so Music teachers will benefit from this platform too.
Teachers who wish to introduce Natural History content in their Science classes
will have the opportunity to explore the natural world in 3,415,528 drawings, specimens, images and documents in the Natural History collection.
211,249 items on the topic of migration to, from and within Europe are thoroughly depicted in the Migration Collection.
I am sure this platform founded by the European Commisssion in 2008 and updated with new features including a translation tool into 27 languages will enable you to enrich your classes.
