Historiana - a web tool for teaching history
Historiana is an initiative of EUROCLIO, the European Association of History Educators in which an online, interactive, multimedia tool will be developed on the learning and teaching of common themes in history and heritage.
The website can be used for educational purposes in classrooms, museums and heritage settings and will provide a plurality of perspectives with respect for inter- and intra-state diversity. This will be realized by the inclusion of multiple perspectives which will help to adequately comprehend the complexity in history and heritage and work towards increased historical awareness.
Historiana does not aim to be encyclopedic or to be an comprehensive digital history textbook, but will create opportunities to compare the history and heritage across time and regions, which will allow them to see connections, differences and similarities. The material is designed in such a way that stimulates users to think critically on issues related to history and heritage and to acquire key competences and simultaneously gain knowledge on specific events and long term developments in history.
