Welcome to BNEscolar
The proposal of Biblioteca Nacional de España, in collaboration with Red.es, to promote the presence and use of digital cultural heritage in teaching and school learning.
A platform for digital content and services developed from the digital documentary fund of the BNE. A space for exchange, collaborative enrichment. An opportunity to reflect in the classroom on the importance of preserving historical and cultural memory. And create new alliances between heritage and education, between memory institutions and teaching centers.
Discover, create and share.
