Presentation of the Digital Educational Programmes

The digital educational programmes implemented by the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in cooperation with the Multimedia, Networks and Communication Laboratory of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, in the framework of the ERDF Operational Programme “Education and Lifelong Learning” (“Experiential Cultural Environments” action), were presented to the educational community at a one-day seminar on 23 April 2016, following the appropriate notification via the Directorates of Primary and Secondary Education.

Apart from the two digital programmes “A Festival at the Palace” and “Journeying through the Mediterranean” for 3rd– and 4th-year Primary and Gymnasium students respectively, the project members also presented the theoretical museum education framework within which they worked.

There followed the application of the programmes by the teachers, using digital technology, in the exhibition rooms of the Museum and the educational programme room.


The seminar was attended by 120 teachers and representatives of educational bodies, who commented particularly favourably on the educational programmes and submitted proposals regarding future educational events.
