Royal Northumberland Yacht Club have been busy creating a “virtual” tour of LV50 and also linking with local schools to create some really exciting online learning opportunities that are aligned to the national curriculum. RNYC took the opportunity to inform the National Historic Ships organisation and we are really excited that we have won the award of a Flagship of the Year 2021.
The link to the tour is https://friendsoflv50.org.uk/tour.htm
The Primary school learning resources are available from our website. https://friendsoflv50.org.uk/learning-resources/
This facility substantially enhances and expands the opportunities for all visitors to understand and experience our Historic Ship. It represents a huge repository of information available not just to local people but anyone anywhere with internet access. The tour and the associated learning experience have been an innovative response to the pandemic that has opened up new ways of engaging learners and communities as well as greatly enhancing the options for those with mobility difficulties that will live on beyond Covid 19. The blend of digital and physical engagement has greatly enhanced the educational and information impact - i.e. access to the remote resource in advance of a visit and/or accessing the remote resource to embed and extend the visit experience. . We anticipate this resource will generate greater footfall and enjoyment, both virtual and real.
