The TOGETHER project aims to foster digital creativity of young generations by using the “service learning” methodology, which means to create a link between students’ learning objectives and the actual needs of the society, and by applying it to secondary school. This will then engage students in community-valuable activities of digital transformation for cultural heritage resources, in order to protect community’s cultural assets. The project has developed a training path for secondary school teachers on how to provide significant creative digital skills through the application of service learning oriented to the design of a motivating learning environment, aiming to engage students in real-life initiatives in collaboration with key local actors for the promotion of their cultural heritage.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected dramatically creative economy and cultural heritage. At the same time, this sector plays a fundamental role for ensuring the continued development of societies. Therefore, there is an increasing need for the young generations to take over a role of responsibility towards their current and future cultural wealth, through the deployment of new competence frameworks where hard (digital) and soft (creativity) skills should be prominent. The process of digitalisation and digital transformation of cultural capital that is currently underway is providing a great help for its long-term preservation and valorisation, while at the same time contributing to close the gap with younger generations, that are today fully digital native.
