Attention to issues of heritage, in all its forms, has received attention across Europe. Its use in primary and secondary education curricula has developed many fascinating outcomes, in part because ideas of heritage interact well with new pedagogical approaches, like cross-curricular collaboration and project work.
Few training manuals offering concrete materials and examples of good practices exist. HEREDUC (HERitage EDUcation) has tried to fill this gap. This project, part of the Comenius 2.1 scheme, works within the European Union Socrates programme. The HEREDUC project also offers a webpage (www.hereduc.net) to accompany this guidebook.
