Manx National Heritage launches new online learning resource 16 March 2007

Manx National Heritage is pleased to announce an exciting new online resource on the Education Services section of their website.

Through collaboration with the Manx Heritage Foundation and the Department of Education, 3 resource packs titled ‘Manx Mines Rocks and Minerals’, ‘Manx Sea Fishing 1600-1990s’ and ‘Manx Farming and Country Life 1700-1900’, are now available online for both formal and informal learning.

The publications, which were produced by the late Fred Radcliffe and funded by the Manx Heritage Foundation, are the result of many years of research and will assist teachers in the planning and delivery of the Manx Curriculum to Manx schools.

Each of the curriculum based packs include a ‘resource book’ to provide teachers with a detailed background into each of the subjects and ‘pupil cards’ which can be used by children for topic based learning.

Anthea Young, Education Services Officer for Manx National Heritage said:

”The collaboration between Manx National Heritage, the Manx Heritage Foundation and the Department of Education enabled the digitisation of these significant documents to make them available for all forms of formal and informal education. By providing these resources online, the documents can be easily accessed by local teachers and students as well as those from further afield.”

The publications can be downloaded as PDF files from the education pages on Manx National Heritage’s website at http://www.gov.im/mnh/education/curricularesources/
