The Images of England Learning Zone was launched earlier this year at the Education show at the NEC in Birmingham. This innovative educational resource can be used in classrooms to help children learn about the historic buildings in their local area as well as putting them into a larger national context.

The free to access resources available in the Learning Zone have been written and compiled by the National Monuments Record's Education Officer Mary Mills who has ensured that teachers have different ways of accessing the wealth of information available from Images of England. There are themed image albums including the Seaside, 1930s and the poor allowing teachers to quickly relate images taken for the project to their lesson plans. The case studies include contributions from teachers who are already finding Images of England to be an exciting resource and demonstrate ways in which the site has been successfully used in the classroom. The case studies can be used to support studies at different stages of the curriculum and include learning activities to engage students with learning about historic buildings.

All of the resources available on the Images of England Learning Zone are clearly labelled with their links into the National Curriculum and the subjects they relate to including History, Geography, Citizenship and ICT.

Above all the Images of England Learning Zone offers an amazing resource to enthuse future champions of the historic built environment. Click here to visit the Learning Zone.
