Seró Espai Transmissor: a pedagogical project that involves the entire educational community
Throwing light on a megalithic monument can be a tough task. If we add that the monument is quite atypical, it was later modified and nowadays it is not displayed in its original location, the challenge is even greater.
The guided tours and the parallel activities, as well at Seró Espai Transmissor are always focused on giving all visitors the best of the experiences. This means adapting the discourse to the previous knowledges and the specific needs of each group. Regardless of whether they are primary school students or specialists in the field, all visitors leave the centre appreciating how and why people erected three statue menhirs thousands of years ago and later transformed them into a large tomb.
However, the centre is committed to constantly improving its didactical proposal, and this involves learning from other heritage profes sionals and involving the local educational community. This is the reason why last June we hosted the first edition of Prehistoscopi , a fair that brought together all the museums and companies currently developing educational projects about prehistory in C atalonia. It was a meeting place for professionals, but also offered plenty of leisure activities to local citizens.
The fair was also an opportunity to culminate a long term project developed with the local school.
Throughout the course, the students pre pared, filmed and edited videos in which the children explain the different rooms of the museum in three languages, which are accessible to all visitors through QR codes. During the Prehistoscopi , the students themselves presented the videos and were in ch arge of giving guided tours to the public.
Seró Espai Transmissor continues to work with this mentality of continuous improvement and involvement of society, to better serve as a vessel between some obscure monuments of 5000 years ago and the society of t he 21st century that is its heir.
