Educational resources

In many ways, these can all be defined as ‘outreach’ and include printed media as well as websites with opportunities for interactivity and e-learning.  We have intimate knowledge of formal education systems and curricula, as well as museum learning theory.  Recent initiatives have taken ‘learning’ beyond the needs of formal education and into new fields such as early years, family, youth, lifelong and U3A.  Meanwhile the barriers between traditional and new educational media are being broken down, especially with the growth of the use of interactive whiteboards, which allow new media to be used in formal teaching settings.  We work on the principle that we will consult teachers and users as part of the process of developing any resources.

E-learning resources

Where possible our approach is to build learning and communication elements into the website to ensure interactivity and participation.  We recommend formative evaluation with target audiences and can also offer this as an expert consultancy service.  We have worked with several web development companies and are familiar with current thinking on e-learning development.
