This Learning Scenario has been developed by Marco Neves as part of the Europeana DSI-4 project.
This learning scenario makes use of the Europeana exhibition called "Trench life", a collection based on World War I. It is aimed for history classes, but can be used to introduce some geographical and ICT topics as well. The aim is to identify life conditions in the trenches during WW1, understand how trench life affected the psychology of soldiers, have a clear idea of the devastation brought by WW1, and identify the countries involved. Students will also develop their English skills, understand collaborative work, apply the basic principles of copyright, developed ICT skills concerning the development of digital products. In this 5 hour plan, students will start by forming teams and writing a plan, and then do research about the topic. They will then use a virtual/augmented reality platform to create the experience. They will also record their own talks analyzing the details in the images. The class ends with a presentation of each team's work in the classroom.
