Founded in 1753, the British Museum’s remarkable collection spans over two million years of human history and culture and includes world-famous treasures such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, and Egyptian mummies. With over 6 million visitors in 2013, the Museum is the top visitor attraction in the UK.
Last year, 262,000 pupils visited the British Museum. Jane Findlay, Head of Schools and Young Audiences, will discuss the potential and pitfalls of using technology to support museum learning. Discussing the need to align learning and digital strategies for maximum impact, her presentation will cover topical subjects such as developing sustainable technology partnerships, conceiving blended learning approaches through the innovative Samsung Digital Discovery Centre, deepening families’ engagement in the galleries with augmented reality applications and building successful online teaching resources.
