Having part of a committee looking at how to introduce, maintain and blend aboriginal studies into the school curriculum across the year levels, one barrier raised was the lack of resources and information on local history, cultural characteristics etc
This afternoon, I will attend another meeting, where the possibility of setting up a virtual museum that builds resources over time and that can be accessed by all who may be interested.
Resources and information re Virtual Museums
- World’s Largest Aboriginal Museum
- Virtual museums developed with powerpoint
- What is a virtual museum
What format might this take?
- a blog
- a wiki
As teachers build resources, they could be added to collaborative documents or pdf files that could be accessed from the online space. Photos, videos etc could be shared etc.
Do you think this is an idea that would work? What suggestions would you have? Do you have any virtual museum websites that you could reccoment for us to look at or have you taken any virtual tours that impressed you with their quality? Please leave a comment below and share with us, if you can.
