This event builds on the publication of a report on My primary school is at the museum, a project led by King’s College London which tested the hypothesis that there may be beneficial learning, social and cultural outcomes for children and their families if a significant portion of their nursery, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 education takes place in a museum or gallery – not to mention benefits for the cultural organisations themselves.
The forum is aimed at museum and gallery learning and education staff, UK school teachers and education specialists and will feature:
-Panel discussions with:
-Facilitators including Wendy James, concept initiator and architect with experience of creating learning spaces in museums
Networking opportunities with other learning and education professionals
