This document proposes a set of recommendations for the use of digital cultural heritage in education and learning. It concerns all forms and levels of education and learning, from formal classroom teaching in schools and universities to adult education and informal learning in, for instance, the context of associations or at home.
These recommendations are the work of policymakers from European Ministries of Culture and Education and experts in the field of education from 21 different countries. They were created at strategy meetings under the Italian and Latvian Presidencies (2014/2015), facilitated by the Europeana Foundation, European Schoolnet and EUROCLIO - European Association of History Educators.
