Abstract

In collaboration with the London Science Museum, our project team developed a digital resource for teachers to link objects in museum galleries to the British National Curriculum. We tested the effectiveness of this type of resource through evaluations of two prototypes on an iPad. After testing and data analysis, we provided recommendations for the Science Museum to move forward with this type of application development. Our results concluded that this type of resource is easy for teachers to use, and it is something teachers are engaged and motivated to use to bring content from the classroom to object-rich galleries in museums.
