National WW1 Project: Volunteer Schools Needed for Digital Collection Days

    As part of Oxford University's 'Lest We Forget' Project we are looking to work with schools across the UK to support them in running digital collection days around material from the First World War. If you are interested in being part of this and volunteering your school to assist then please drop us an email at: ww1collections@it.ox.ac.uk

    We explain what a Digital Collection Day is at: https://lwf.web.ox.ac.uk/organise-digital-collection-day but in summary it is where people bring in material their family has kept from the war, and you and your students interview them and then take a digital photograph of the object and upload it to a national collection. We will offer you training in how to run the event and downloadable material, templates, posters, etc. We will also put you in touch with local experts on the war to assist, living history companies who can come and present to your students, exhibition ideas, and how you can integrate all this into your teaching (we have a specific guide for teachers on this).

    We kicked the project off with a day at Cheney School in Oxford and the teacher there, Dr Lorna Robinson, wrote a blog post on what the students did and what they got out of it: http://rumblemuseum.org.uk/index.php/blog/131-world-war-one-collection-day

    For more information on the project see our main site at: https://lwf.web.ox.ac.uk/home

    Please do get in touch!
