New For Learning: Isle of Wight History Digital Explorer Maps

Our exciting work with the Isle of Wight Museums and Schools project is taking shape. Teachers can now discover 4 new digital history explorer maps on our website that support KS2 and KS3 teaching at home and in the classroom across history, geography, science and citizenship subjects.

These resources help teach local history, through object stories found in the wonderful collections of local museums, and show how they connect with national and global histories. Students can dive in and explore these fascinating and sometimes poignant stories on our themed maps: Isle of Wight Before 1066, an Island of Empire 1700-1900, Science Innovation island and Global Island.

We are excited about continuing to develop these resources as a long-term partnership with local museums and schools on the Isle of Wight, including creating learning outcome links with school field trips to museums. So, watch this space, as there is more to come!

Take a look at our new maps and let us know what you think. If you are a teacher or museum interested in having a similar resource for your local area please get in touch
