DICHE stands for ‘Digital Innovation in Cultural and Heritage Education in the light of 21st century learning’. The aim of the project is to integrate digital resources and opportunities for cultural and heritage education in primary school.
The DICHE consortium consists of six partner organisations coming from different European countries and operating at the intersection of primary education, cultural and heritage education and e-learning. Together they will develop a theoretical framework for the use of digital tools in cultural and heritage education. Based on this framework, a set of practical teaching scenarios and digital tools will be tested and made available to (prospective) teachers for immediate use in class.
