Digital learning to schools & homes

All learning programmes in museums faced a challenge during lockdown as face-to-face formal and informal learning was locked down and a rapid move to digital needed to be made. This month’s IATM webinar looks at inspiring examples of the move to digital learning from the Berlin Technical Museum and from the UK’s Kids in Museums.

Following an introduction to Berlin Technical Museum, from its new Director, Joachim Breuninger, we look at two digital learning initiatives, the the and the Junior Campus presented by Bettina Gries and Marcel Jahre.

Kids in Museums promotes family friendly approaches in UK museums; CEO Alison Bowyer presents lessons in digital engagement for families from the Family Friendly Museum Award in 2020 and a case study of translating a live learning event the Zoology Live Festival to digital delivery from Cambridge University Museum of Zoology

Followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion led by Elizabeth McKay, COO London Transport Museum, and deputy chair of Kids in Museums.
