Heritage is often associated with old buildings or objects in museums. The term has mostly been used, for example, to highlight a nation-building process in which each nation in each era decides what shall be classified as heritage and preserved for future generations. Some is chosen to be protected by law and looked after as a legacy for the future, while other things not chosen become invisible and lose value in contemporary society. Nevertheless, heritage is not just part of a nation-building process, it is also our own traditions, memories and experiences that we all carry within us. Heritage is nowadays discussed in terms of tangible heritage (buildings, objects, stationary ancient monuments), and intangible heritage (traditions, songs, skills in crafts, etc.). Heritage is also claimed to be in constant movement, that new heritage is frequently being created, and that it is a process that all humans participate in. My questions in this presentation is how to use heritage in teaching and learning and why it is important doing so. I will introduce a model of four spheres, which I have named PWNW (Personal, Wider, Nation and World). The model presented has been developed through a pedagogical exercise called “the heritage bag” and it is a result of many lectures, presentations and performances during the last 10 years. Through the model PWNW I claim that students, pupils and others participating in the Heritage bag exercise changes their perception of what heritage means and it has been proven to be an effective tool in teaching and learning about heritage in primary schools, high schools and universities as well as within informal learning situations.
