Purpose and goal

The objective of the project was to develop tools and knowledge about how teaching and learning can benefit from the open platforms; Wikimini, Wikipedia and platser.se in collaboration with civic society and the cultural heritage sector. There are three main skillsets to the project: History skills - learning from the local community in the past, future and present. Language and communication skills - linguistic genres and expressions in and outside of digital platforms. Media and information literacy - create digital content with regards to criteria of reliability and usefulness.

Expected results and effects

The project has achieved its goal of developing an open educational resources, which is freely available with instructions and recommendations based on the experiences from the classroom projects in Stockholm. The free licensing secures the project as an open and available resource for anyone to adapt and repeat in any local community regardless of its geography.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was overall successful thanks to the level of engagement and commitment by the involved teachers, students, project participants and reference group. During the dissemination phase, the project was represented at a number of national and international events. We’ve seen great interest in connecting a digital education with the local community and heritage of students, and that open platforms can enable collaborations beyond the physical bounds of the classroom.
