Year 10 History World War 2 to Vietnam – Digital Storytelling excursion

The museum is putting together a digital storytelling excursion: ‘Year 10 history World War 2 to Vietnam’.  They are looking to schools to pilot the excursion during 2014.

Students spend the day at the museum learning about World War 2, National Service and Vietnam through demonstrations and artefacts.  Students work in groups to create digital stories – short movies on their tablet devices, and show them at the end of the day.  A small prize is awarded to the winning team, for the best digital story as voted on by the museum volunteers.  The day includes live demonstrations of horseback tent pegging and a flag raising ceremony with firing party.  They create great action footage!
