The British Museum’s Samsung Digital Discovery Centre provides digital learning opportunities to approximately 10,000 school and family visitors annually. We’re pleased to announce that Juno Rae and Lizzie Edwards, co-managers of the Centre’s learning programme, will be at Digital Past to introduce ‘A gift for Athena’, a new app created with games development company Gamar, which uses Augmented Reality to support Key Stage 2 student visits to the British Museum’s Parthenon gallery.
Using tablets supplied by the Centre, the app encourages students to explore the Parthenon sculptures and through a variety of challenges and puzzles, learn about Ancient Greek architecture and mythologies.
Juno and Lizzie will discuss the development of this innovative digital learning session and share their experiences on the benefits and challenges of incorporating augmented reality into museum learning.
