Educational resource development
For over eighteen years Field of Vision has been involved in educational resource development, working with organisations such as the National Trust, Age Concern UK, University of Worcester, Museums, and Local Authorities. Scroll down for a small selection of our work – and a couple of resources to play with.
We’ve worked on heritage resources and schools projects covering key stages 2-4 and intergenerational work including oral history resources, biodiversity interactives, and medically themed games. The resources contained multimedia, films and games, forms and archives, interactive guides and tours. And we have been lucky enough to work with some talented project managers, researchers and other professionals along the way.
Some sample projects:
The National Trust – Llanerchaeron, Wales PDA tours
The National Trust – Croft Castle, Herefordshire PDA tours
Islington biodiversity interactive – Islington Ecology Centre
George Marshall Medical Museum interactives
River Tales– oral histories about Herefordshire rivers
The Regal Tenbury Wells – interactive tour of the cinema
World of kays – an archive of over 2,000 catalogue images
Remember the Fallen – schools resource
Educational resources development can involve a range of skills which we offer in-house – from project management if required, to design and illustration as well as programing and SEO if the resource is web-based. Most often though, we work with project managers, researchers and educationalists and others in a team. Websites can involve a some training so clients can operate the day to day running themselves and we also train volunteers on community run sites. And once you’ve put all that energy into creating your resource, it is important to make sure it is seen – Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is as important for educational websites as for commercial ones.
