Information about the project
ICT in the education of heritage. Camaguey heritage city.
The project is based on the need to raise awareness of the cultural heritage treasured by the city of Camagüey, Cuba, a city declared by UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The actions are carried out having as place the Interpretation Center of the city. An online platform is developed that informs visitors about the site in an entertaining and wireless way. Educational technologies are deployed that are currently trending such as Augmented Reality. Cultural heritage interpretation workshops are held with children, youth and adults. Contests and other educational actions are developed collaterally. For the visitor in general, heritage content related to the city is made available through a Wi-Fi network, in the form of a guided tour, for example, with photos, texts and audiovisuals. All actions favor raising the quality of education and its inclusiveness for all actors, making them increasingly committed to a sustainable development of the city and greater inclusiveness in preservation actions.
