Following the “International Archives Week“ campaign „Archives empowering knowledge societies“ and CREARCH -Creative archives as innovative cultural hubs project’s educational and audience development activities, ICARUS Hrvatska invites you to a new webinar introducing the Spacetime Layers Platform.
MAPPING HERITAGE TOGETHER
Spacetime Layers is a joint platform of cultural organizations, nature management and educational institutions, that allows information to be placed on an interactive map. Within the frame of educational activities, pupils and students look for (stories behind) cultural heritage and subsequently disseminate the found knowledge. Media literacy, digital literacy, cultural education and crosscurricular didactics all come together in this innovative app that originated in a Dutch primary school class. During the webinar, Patrick Trentelman will show you how you can easily put information into the interactive map, stake out guided tours and adventurous scavenger hunts. It is a fantastic tool for cultural organisations, schools, GLAM institutions, tourist agencies, nature/heritage parks and sights etc. + All participants of the webinar will receive a free Spacetime account to host their own content in the app!
