    Virtual Mobility Erasmus+ HELP, Heritage Education Learning Program

    With a virtual mobility that involved around 200 students and teachers from the AECCB, from Istanbul, Turkey, Kavardaci, Northern Macedonia and Ribeira Grande, Azores, the Erasmus+ Heritage Education Learning Program project, coordinated by the AECCB, with the development of a vast project, ended and a diverse set of activities, all implemented through digital platforms and applications. Over 3 years, 4 schools, strategically located from a historical-geographic point of view, worked together to understand their common historical roots, crossing cultures, from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, with a strong connection to the USA through emigration, to the Iberian Peninsula, Italian Peninsula, Balkan Peninsula and Marmara Sea.

    This project was an extraordinary opportunity for intercultural dialogue, a long journey back in time, from the most remote human settlements in Macedonia or Turkey, to the future, expressed in Famalicão's smart textiles or Istanbul University's nanotechnology unit. Cultural heritage, as Juncker stated, “More than the memory of our past, it is the key to our future”, as it is a transversal educational tool with strong potential for the development of digital, social, cognitive skills, among others. At the welcome ceremony, school directors highlighted the value of this project and the cultural heritage in school curricula and experiences. Students were divided into international groups and performed icebreaking activities. The schools made their presentations on inclusion strategies, volunteering and heritage education. During the mobility, there were moments of live streaming, teacher and student training, workshops, open digital products were built, young people and teachers were able to socialize, reflect and think about new opportunities for collaboration. Encouraged to learn about the European UNESCO heritage, the participants developed their citizen awareness about the value and need to persevere and disseminate the marks of their history and identity. For the AECCB and its partners it was a huge challenge to plan, develop, evaluate and disseminate activities that came as close as possible to physical mobilities, with regard to the wealth of educational and social experiences, which was only possible to implement thanks to the excellent team spirit that was in effect throughout the life of this project. The partner schools are already thinking about its sustainability, about educational strategies that kept alive the objectives of this remarkable Erasmus+ project. As a final balance, the AECCB recognizes the significant impact of this project on its European projection strategy and on improving the service provided to the community.
