E-HELP : European History E-Learning Project
Comenius 2.1

Summary of the Project

The European E-Learning Project will empower European history teachers to take the teaching and learning of history into the 21st century. Designed to enlighten and initiate history teachers into the pedagogic possibilities of ICT in the history classroom, E-HELP will, through a website, online forum and residential course, enable history teachers to exploit the revolutionary potential of ICT.

E-HELP is designed as a three year, three-phase project:

Phase 1 will begin by identifying and evaluating existing good practice, examining the potential of the technology to revolutionise current methodologies. We will research and produce online curricula and assessment modules designed to enable European history teachers, whatever the language competences of their students, to teach history issue-based themes of importance beyond the boundaries of the nation state.

Phase 2 will see the launch of our E-HELP website and online forum to share our work and begin to create a pan-European community of history teachers with an interest in exploiting the potential of ICT.

Phase 3 will consolidate our project by preparing the first in a series of residential conference designed to bring European history teachers and history teacher trainers together to learn the skills that will make this revolution possible.

I have read the Toulouse presentations.
Thank to all of you.

In my next Internet Chronicle (Historiens & Geographes), I have quoted the titles :

2 questions :
- Is there on this Forum a general entry to summarise all these issues ?
If not, can we start one ?

Create innovative online history resources in a  multilingual/second language context.

- How does E-Help plan to cope with the european languages (25 ?) ?

Las january, I have written this paper on "Internet in French secondary schools" : http://hgtice.free.f...vues/rygiel.htm
How can I get it translated to Hungarian, or ... English for instance ?

How does E-Help plan to cope with the european languages (25 ?) ?

One of the objectives of E-HELP is researching and producing some resources on teaching history in a language different from the tongue that is normally spoken by the students. In my case, teaching history in English to Spanish students.
There is a growing number of schools around Europe that are implementing this sort of teaching history.
Daniel, is it the case at your school. I know some French teachers who work in Section Européens and teach in English. I am starting next year at my school with the youngest students (12 years old).
I think it would be very interesting to create stable relationshinps between history teachers in bilingual schools all over Europe.
