The CrowdSchool project, developed within the Erasmus+ Programme, represents the first educational use of the CrowdHeritage platform, created by the National Technical University of Athens to support online annotation of metadata describing the digital collections of Europeana.
Four schools, and five cultural institutions from France, Belgium, Italy, Poland and Spain, have created galleries of cultural objects on Europeana, in various themes such as food, fashion, sport, landscape, architecture, etc. asking their students to use a creative and critical approach for tagging the items. The successful experience has shown the potential of using digital cultural heritage for educational purposes, allowing the involved students to take part in a transnational and multilingual community.
