What is PITCHER?

The general objective of PITCHER consists of the design and test of a set of open educational resources focusing on improving the educators’ capacity in preparing new learning experiences to support the fight against looting and illicit trafficking of cultural goods.

The project will propose a new model for showing young people how they can support the fight against looting and illicit trafficking of cultural goods, addressing their school teachers, to raise teachers’ awareness and enhance their professional development in this field.

Activities

The general objective of PITCHER consists of the design and test of a set of open educational resources, to be made available also online, focusing on improving the educators’ capacity in preparing new learning experiences to support the fight against looting and illicit trafficking of cultural goods. This will be done by:

  • Empowering schools with tools to help their students acquire the critical thinking skills necessary to play an effective role in tackling this problem,as a young citizen and as an adult;





  • Creating educational materials based on STEAM Education as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking;

  • Using the educational potential present in European digital heritage collections (archeological sites, museums, libraries, etc.) to help teachers develop lessons and workshops focusing on the fight against looting and illicit trafficking of cultural goods.
