The future for museum learning

An Arts Council (ACE)-commissioned report, The Future of Museum Learning for Children & Young People, shows how creating effective partnerships will be important for young people’s learning programmes in the future. 

The study, by consultant Sam Cairns and supported by the Group for Education in Museums (GEM), includes research into museum learning over the last 15 years, current thinking and a section intended to lead to further action and ideas: among opportunities highlighted are the new national curriculum and the potential of digital technology. The study aims to inform ACE’s support for museum learning in the future.
