Museum and heritage educational multimedia website projects
Project: Award-winning educational website consisting of database of text and photographs, interactive classroom activities and schools' work display area.
Client: London Parks and Gardens Trust, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
London Parks and Gardens Trust wanted to use photographs and material collected by them about the open spaces within four London boroughs to produce an informative, educational and fun website project.
The archived material is accessed in two main ways; first via location, leading to database information and photographs of each park or green space, and secondly via topic-led activities for children. Activities are also accessed via the database, and activity pages highlight similar activities in other parks via cross-links.
Activities were designed to cover online work, classroom work, and things to do when visiting the location. The website was tested and supported in the classroom by a teaching specialist.
This project was awarded an Archives Landmark Award by the Corporation of London's Joint Archive Service.
