Year 9 – WWI history: A digital storytelling excursion
The museum has put together a digital storytelling excursion for year nine entitled ‘Telling the ANZAC story.
Students spend the day at the museum learning about World War I ANZACs and Light horse 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!
The day is structured as follows:
- Overview: includes instruction on digital story telling and movie making app on tablet device
- Museum experience: students rotate through the museum displays and talks including:
- ANZAC Artefacts and souvenirs brought home
- Beersheba Battle and diorama
