ASL - London calling
The learning section of the museum's website now offers accessible objects, an interactive story and downloadable pictures to support lessons, all from the museum's collections.
The resource is in three parts:
- Accessible objects that help students with learning difficulties interact with museum objects online. Users can zoom in on 3D objects and use their mouse to turn them around to view them from all angles. There is also a written caption alongside the 3D image and a keyword-signed video. There are eight pages in total. One example is: www.museumoflondon.org.ukEnglishLearningTeachersResources_lamp.htm.[Q Q] - Fortunata and the Four Gods, an interactive story, is told as a chant using a call-and-response technique. The story also includes downloadable teachers' notes about how to use the story with a class as an activity. See www.museumoflondon.org.ukEnglishLearningTeachersResources_Fortunata.h tm.
- Images grouped by session allow teachers to view and show objects that will be used in their museum workshop or that are relevant to the topic they are studying. These can be found at the bottom of each session page in the "What's on" section: www.museumoflondon.org.ukschools10-11.
