UiO 200: Inquiry and ICT in University Museums (completed)

InterMedia and The Natural History Museum have implemented research about ICT and learning in the design of an interactive exhibition about geology and landscape forms.

About the project

The aim of this project is to contribute to the research-based design and implementation of digital educational resources in UiO museums. In a collaborative design process, the partners have developed an interactive activity for the permanent Geology exhibition at the Natural History Museum. Five interactive stations are architecturally integrated into the historically preserved Geology exhibition space.

The pedagogical activity is designed for Grade Four curriculum in science, which includes identifying and classifying different landscape forms. Pupils on school field trips interact with RFID-tagged models of landscape forms to activate multimedia content in a game-like activity. Learning on the museum field trip is supported with web-based resources for pre- and post-visit activities in the classroom.
