An online school partnership programme, where schools meet and explore the Commemoration of World War 1, and develop a common understanding of the Duty of Remembrance.
Why join the Shared Histories programme?
Do you want your students to be involved in the Commemoration of WW1? Do you want them to meet others in the process, from different countries so that they experience different backgrounds and geographical settings? Do you want them to use and develop an appreciation for others' language and culture? The intention of the programme is to provide students with the opportunity to discover the profound significance and impact of the sacrifices made by participating countries and territories through interacting and exchanging in an authentic context.

Who can join the programme?

What are the functions I can use on the platform?

I already have a partner and we have started a WW1 project: can I benefit from SharedHistories.com?
Yes all you need to do is to submit your project as a Shared Histories project. To do so both partners create a profile then partner (as a formality). Fill in your project outline and submit it. If you have been working together for a while, this won’t take long to complete!
Can parents, community members take part?
Parents, family and friends of your school community are actively encouraged to take part. They can do so by creating a Community Member profile. They can then leave comments on blogs and participate in forums.
