The Museomix 2022 event at the Musée d’Histoire de Marseille, of which the PITCHER Project is part, has been postponed to 2023 due to a delay of the exhibition "Guilty treasures - Archaeological looting in France and the Mediterranean basin ". Therefore, partners will gather in November for internal training days, under the format of a “PITCHER educational workshop”.
With the participation of the students of schools from Marseille, partners will prototype solutions to be used in the PITCHER Open Educational Resources.
The Pitcher Educational Workshop (PEW) is the first step of the second part of the Pitcher project: the target (“Result 2”) is to prototype the development of Open Educational Resources (OERs) in order to pave the way to mass use of a training model and resources.
In order to achieve that goal, Museomix Association will organize successive training workshops (PEWs) in 2022 and 2023, inspired by the Museomix-Edumix methodology, lightened and thematized to be adapted to a small group of professionals. The first PEW will be held in Marseille, from 14 to 16 November 2022, in the Musée d’Histoire de Marseille.
On the first day, the PITCHER partners will be associated, in the museum, with a class (teachers and students) from the town of Allauch (a town near Marseille); divided into different teams, they will work all together to dream, design and start to materialize some prototypes of OERs (one per team).
On the second day, the PITCHER partners will extend the ideas of the previous day to increase their educational value and feed them with adapted content, with the help of the museum’s crew supported by a FabLab from Marseille.
On the third day, they will confront their ideas with specialists in archaeology and heritage in order to identify potential improvements that will be worked on during the following PEWs.
The objective of the PEW workshop is to sensitize high school students to the theme of archaeological looting by proposing to them to imagine and create by themselves innovative mediation projects around these stakes. The remix method applied in school learning is a pedagogy of action: by applying this methodology, students become actors of their own learning. They develop their autonomy, train their critical thinking and gain responsibility.
