The project

The ART project makes part of the international museum world and other cultural / religious institutions accessible to a Europe-wide target group: students aged 8 to 16 years.

It is evident that no, or hardly any travel is now possible due to the COVID-19 virus, this has an effect on the mobility of everyone, including students and teachers. More so, students do not always have the opportunity (time), interest (mind-set) and resources (money) to physically visit multiple locations in a short time.

The ART VR method opens up the (museum) “world” to them. In the ART project, we teach students the ability to think critically and to form an opinion. Things that, in addition to all other subjects, are essential to impart in primary and secondary education and that are currently done too little or in too little innovative way (An internationalization chain from primary education to world citizen and the professional field (2015), Coelen , R.).

How can you better educate students in primary and secondary education about the changing world in which we live, than through an innovative, modern and appealing way?

The ART project connects Virtual Reality (VR) methodology to global citizenship and art education. VR makes it possible to simulate a 3D world that completely surrounds us. This makes it seem as if we are "really" in a different place while we do not have to leave the house.

Through various recordings of museums, (temporary) exhibitions, historical and / or cultural buildings (of a religious nature), the students not only get a beautiful picture of different museums, all kinds of art and history but they are also offered various assignments and explanations and they are taught about their own active contribution to global citizenship.
