Coming up – new resource for history teaching

Written by Susanna Zidén

Right now, the National Historical Museums are developing a digital learning resource for schools – History of Sweden. Target groups for the resource are teachers and pupils from secondary and middle school, but also language introduction groups in high school. History of Sweden will become a hub for schools, museums and history education – here teachers will be able to find inspiration and teaching ideas, and pupils will get access to historical facts through objects in the museum collections. The content will match the curriculum for school’s history education. The learning resource will contain historical facts and different learning tools such as 3D models, maps, timelines, audio guides and teaching ideas for the classroom. The content for History of Sweden will be created together with ten different museums and in dialogue with schools around Sweden. The learning resource will both include a unique website and material shared on different digital platforms. History of Sweden will be launched in the autumn of 2020. Until then one can follow the project and development on this blog.
