The Digital Hi-storytelling (DIGHIST) project is a response to the challenges raised by the COVID-19 pandemic in the field of historical and civic education such as contact with peers, distance education or challenging social processes.
This report sets out which historical events and processes of the 20th century are included in history curricula in Belgium, Poland and Spain. It identifies topics which teachers find important and those they find most difficult to deal with. It also maps the digital tools that teachers use and the methods they apply in class. The findings of this research feed into the preparation of Digital History Atlas with the key aim of precisely defining the content and methodology for the use of data storytelling materials, taking into account the needs of teachers and education systems.
The materials were prepared as a part of the “Digital Hi-storytelling” project conducted by the School with Class Foundation in cooperation with Asociación Smilemundo and King Baudouin Foundation and funded by the European Commission's Erasmus+ program fund.
