Virtual museums in the covid era
The VISITOR project will develop virtual visits to museums, via a game-based application, for schools to use and align with their curriculum activities.
VISITOR is an Erasmus+ funded project and a collaboration between the UK, France, Belgium and Greece. The main aim of the project is to develop virtual visits to museums, via a game-based application, for schools to use and align with their curriculum activities. The project will involve cataloguing digital museum exhibits, developing use cases and structured learning experiences around the museum exhibits, developing a game-based application, and creating a professional development course for teachers to train and support them in delivering the virtual visits.
The role of IET
Researchers in IET will lead the development of use cases for the virtual museum artefacts and the evaluation of the game-based application and professional development course. IET will also contribute to the cataloguing of the digital museum exhibits and the creation of learning material for the professional development course. Finally, IET will contribute to the project with their citizen science – related knowledge and expertise.
