  1. What particularly interested me about your seminar was the idea of asking students to learn about a historical event, or even relive it, through the accounts of people who actually experienced that event. The CVCE produces filmed interviews of people who have witnessed important events in European history, and then enters them into the European NAvigator (ENA) knowledge base. In so doing, the CVCE has a similar objective: that of bringing a human dimension to the process of European integration. Alongside well-known people such as Otto von Habsburg, we also make a point of interviewing lesser
  2. Do you have any experience and feed-backs from students outside Luxembourg where ENA had been used in everyday pedagogy at some school? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Indeed I believe that the use of a database such as ENA needs a very close support of the teacher. Most of the teachers that I met don’t unfortunately do it in a very interactive way. They print a document, especially cartoons or newspaper articles, and ask their pupils to comment the document or to answer questions about it. They told me that they appreciate such documents because in their schoolbooks, critical material is of
  3. I’m sure you are right about the pathways through the material and we will work on it. Terry, could you please give me the address of the “Shapes of Time” site which would interest me. Generally, if somebody of you is used to consult a site with interesting didactic material or knows about sites which are really interesting in this respect I would be grateful if you could give me the addresses so that I can see what kind of didactic sequences you might need.
  4. At present, you won’t find didactic sequences, learning packages, webquests … about ENA. But I agree that we should give priority to the development of such “pathways” to the material. After technological development and documentary research, that will surely be the next gorgeous challenge. The question is how to take up this challenge. Reading the different contributions, I’ve got a lot of ideas of activities but I’m convinced that the ideal way to proceed would be to work in concrete terms with teachers. I’m currently looking at the different options how to organise such cooperation on a nat
  5. The initial idea of European NAvigator goes back to the debates around the treaty of Maastricht. The idea was to make the pupils and students familiar with the history of the European construction that means from the birth of the community of Europe with the creation of the ECSC to the current European Union. Knowing the history of united Europe would allow them to understand the stakes of present debates. So Marianne Backes, the initiator of the ENA project, submitted the idea to Gilbert Trausch, at that time Professor at the University of Liège, Director of the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherc
  6. The use of ICTs in the classroom: ENA, a case study Introduction The European NAvigator knowledge base, or ENA, is primarily aimed at use in secondary and higher education. ENA provides pupils, students and teachers with thousands of documents on the history of Europe from 1945 to the present day. From the outset, ENA has been developed together with teachers. In particular, they have been involved in content development, in interface and feature evaluation and, more recently, in assessing the various methods of using ENA. In this presentation, I would like to focus on this last point. I s
  7. www.ena.lu is an internet site, aimed at secondary and higher education, covering the history of a united Europe. On it, teachers and students can find a vast array of material that differs widely in both geographical origin and ideological approach. Where did the idea for this site come from? In the early nineteen-nineties, Europe was frequently in the news and a popular subject for politicians – notably as a result of the debates regarding the Treaty on European Union. Such debates often took the form of diatribes between experts, and the average citizen felt excluded by the institutional li
  8. The use of ENA in a classroom: a case study European NAvigator (www.ena.lu), a multimedia database on the history and institutions of post-war Europe, is the flagship service of the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (www.cvce.lu). The objective of ENA is to offer high quality multimedia documents to the students and the teachers by means of ICT. For two years we have worked with some pilote sites to see concretely how such a database can be used in class. That is essential for us especially as the CVCE is a content producer and we want to adapt our database as closely as possible

  10. European NAvigator (ENA), a multimedia database on the history and institutions of post-war Europe, is the flagship service of the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE). Accessible on www.ena.lu., the database provides students, researchers and anyone who is interested with all that is necessary to form their own opinions about the process of European integration. ENA brings together more than 7000 rigorously selected documents. The material is structured chronologically and by subject, each section featuring original historical documents – photos, sound clips, film recordings,
