EUROCLIO is looking for history educators that are interested to join the project “Innovating History Education for All”. This project will run for 3 years (from 1 September 2014 until 31 August 2017). The main innovation within this project is the development of online tools that educators can use to create their own online learning activities. These applications are made specifically to stimulate the re-use of digital heritage in history education, and to promote historical and critical thinking skills. Educators can develop the online learning activities in the language of their choice. The project will result in at least 4 new tools. For an example of how such a tool looks see this video tutorial.
