The Web App has been designed with a comprehensive guide for learning objectives, curriculum links and contextual information.
Teachers and tutors can use the resource in formal and informal learning environments.
- This resource will deepen student’s engagement, knowledge and understanding of a ‘missing chapter’ in the visual heritage of Britain.
The Missing Chapter Web App will:
Encourage students to critically engage with a unique collection of historical photographs, exploring how they present different, under-explored perspectives on British cultural history.
Support and inspire cross-curricular teaching and learning, which promotes the importance of visual literacy, stimulates critical and independent thinking and introduces specialist terms relevant to multiple subject areas.
Explore the role of archives and collections brought to public attention through The Missing Chapter research.
- Make new research accessible for a wide range of audiences from learning, recreational and academic contexts, through an interactive, creative online environment in which to engage with the work.
