Slovenian pilot experience

In Kranj, celebrations in the 20th century were the main topic chosen by 11 people involved in the educational project. Most of them were people aged between 50-70 years old, some retired but still active citizens.
Several cultural organizations from the region collaborated in the design of this course and participants were engaged and motivated from the beginning.

The main outcome was to educate learners about history, collecting historical materials and doing research along with IT knowledge development. They gathered the stories and objects about that topic using interviews, research in the library and visiting several cultural organizations with expertise in the field. Then they put everything together into a newspaper, gaining new IT knowledge along the way.

Besides the newspaper, in September 2015 there will be an exhibition in Kranj City Library along with many relevant events in collaboration with cultural organizations of the region.
