Dom Breadmore, Hannah Grainger Clemson, Chris Unitt

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The purpose of this research is to coordinate the investigation of both the current and potential impact of digital resources for the learning of STEM subjects within LCC Museum Service sites and collections. The report begins with a baseline analysis, considering at a grass roots level the potential for the ways in which online resources might broaden and deepen the learning that has taken place. It then continues to examine existing models of best practice in the design and delivery of online resources / courses / games related to heritage learning. In continues to describe pedagogical approaches and movements in education technology with a discussion of how these might impact or strengthen existing systems and practices used across sites before identifying practical examples of how these approaches could be adopted at LCC sites. This includes an outline of potential third-party or bespoke platforms that could be utilised for the design and delivery of resources / courses / games.
