Mythomania aims to raise awareness towards natural environment and cultural heritage, both material and immaterial, by the myths and legends that explain its origin relating to natural environments, preferably of high cultural heritage value. Methodology to be used is experiential outdoor learning supported by mobile digital technology.

Both projects focus the promotion of new technologies applied to education, new teaching methods and the educational value of European cultural heritage. We are exploring together how to face the challenges of the digital age by using 3D printing, educational robotics and augmented reality systems in Digital Challenges. Mythomania  explores the learning possibilities of open air museums, environmental awareness and immaterial cultural heritage through the legends that explain the origins of sites of natural interest. Students are working collaboratively in teams in activities related to learning objectives.

Digital Challenges and Mythomania are funded under Erasmus+ Key Action 229e, which focuses on strategic partnerships only among schools. The actions under KA2 make it possible for organizations from different participating countries to work together, to develop, share and transfer best practices and innovative approaches in the fields of education, training and youth.
