DLNET’s winter event will be held at the Imperial War Museums on the 12th December 2014.  The theme this year is very timely, focusing on the First World War.   The day will explore how different organisations have developed digital learning content connected to the First World War.  The case studies will look discuss a range of content for formal and informal audiences who will be sharing information about their First World War projects, but will also be exploring how these could be applied to wider subject matter in the future. 

Case studies include:

  • Charlie Keitch, Digital Learning Officer, Imperial War Museums: Developing Imperial War Museums online resources for schools
  • David Avery, Senior Web Content Developer, Learning Team, British Library: Uniting collections from across Europe: building the British Library’s World War One learning website
  • Simon Bendry, Centenary Battlefields Tour Programme Coordinator on what teachers want from resources on the First World War
  • Robin Clutterbuck, Project Manager, Gallipoli Association:  Gallipoli Centenary Education project
  • Gill Parkes, Principal Archivist, Durham Record Office:  Developing the Durham at War project

The event will take place at IWM London and the day will include the opportunity to visit their ground-breaking new galleries and discover how IWM has used digital technologies to help interpret the First World War.

Tickets are on sale now and available via eventbrite
