1. IntroductionThe goal of the Imperial War Museum is to enrich people’s understanding of the causes, course andconsequences of modern war.At five physical branches, through interpretation of collections and by increasing access online, theImperial War Museum delivers projects and programmes that inspire learning for all.This is a museum about people. Personal stories are revealed through extraordinary – and seeminglyvery ordinary – objects, images and documents. A spoon may seem to be just a spoon, until you learnit was the last possession of a Jewish girl lost during the Holocaust. These common human tracesconnect the past to the present, and every day Museum educators help to strengthen this link.This report summarises and highlights the work of the five branch learning teams during 2007-08, alongside corporate projects. The Museum learning offer is formed from everyday educationalprogramming coupled with innovative projects, and this report can only give a flavour of the work thattakes place. Programming represents the Museum’s commitment to providing learning, whilst projectsrepresent the desire to provide learning in new ways. Learning teams work in partnership, inside andoutside the Museum, to deliver the best possible service.Alongside the expert educators at each branch, the Corporate Education department helps share bestpractice and co-ordinate educational work throughout the Museum.

2. Highlights from 2007-08This was a year of change, of development and progression:PeopleStaff changes have reinvigorated branch teams: Charlotte Smith joined Imperial War Museum North as new Head ofLearning and Access in January 2008, whilst there is an entirely new Learning and Access team at Churchill Museumand Cabinet War Rooms (CMCWR).PlacesThe Department for Learning at Imperial War Museum Duxford found a new home in the brand new AirSpace hangar(winner of the best education project in the 2008 National Lottery Awards). Churchill Museum and Cabinet WarRooms linked with the Royal Parks to build the Dig for Victory allotment in St James’s Park, London. The restoredmessdeck on HMS Belfast providing the ‘Kip on a Ship’ sleepover service was voted into the top ten National Lotteryeducation projects of 2007.PartnershipsDCMS/DCSF Strategic Commissioning projects at IWM North, IWM Duxford and IWM London all successfully builton previous years, but took the opportunity to refocus heading into 2008-09. The highly successful ‘Somme Theatre’partnership between IWM London and the Old Vic theatre won the National Lottery heritage project award for 2007.PerformanceMore than 850,000 people learned with the Imperial War Museum in 2007-08 – on-site at branches, online andthrough Museum outreach work. Although fewer adults took part this year, the number of children (aged 15 andunder) involved in programmes increased to 315,576; up by 5 per cent compared to 2006-07. Outreach into localcommunities has been the biggest success, with 15,000 more participants across the Museum branches, a rise of morethan 80 per cent on the previous year.InnovationThe award-winning Their Past Your Future programme has used its four years of experience to create a newprofessional development course for teachers and educators delivering learning outside the classroom. Staff at IWMLondon tackled complex issues in creating four new education sessions as part of a national programme tochallenge the representation of disability in museums. The new Live & Learn programme at IWM North has begun totrain community group leaders in cultural heritage skills.Pupils listen attentively during an educationsessions at Churchill Museum and Cabinet WarRoomsLive & Learn course participants outside ImperialWar Museum North, April 2008.

3. SchoolsOpportunities for schools form the heart of the Museum’s learning service.PeopleIn 2007-08 over 200,000 schoolchildren and teachers took part at branches and through outreach projects. This ismore than half of all learners at our branches during the year.PlacesThe Museum continues to deliver thousands of curriculum-based ‘formal’ sessions to school groups on-site at branchesevery year. The Museum’s community programmes take less formal approaches, both on-site and through outreach, tosupport the curriculum and the wider public agenda of Every Child Matters: Change for Children.The new secondary curriculum for Key Stage 3 History is in place from September 2008. It emphasises flexibility forteachers in how they cover broad historical themes, but makes a clear requirement to cover the two world wars andthe Holocaust. This revised curriculum endorses the enduring relevance of the Museum, not only for History, but alsoin our cross-curriculum work for Citizenship, Literacy, Science and Technology.Partnerships: Partners in Time at IWMPartners in Time (PiT) is one of three DCMS/DCSF Strategic Commissioning projects across the Imperial WarMuseum.In 2007-08 IWM Duxford partnered with museums in Essex, completing our strategic aim of working across all sixcounties in East Anglia: Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. Over the five yearssince Partners in Time began, IWM Duxford has collaborated with more than 30 regional museums.The PiT partners for 2007-08 were Warner Textile Archive, Colchester Museum, the Motor Boat Museum in Basildon,Epping Forest District Museum, Harlow Museum, and Saffron Walden Museum. All partners shared collections objectsto create and deliver the free outreach sessions, introducing schools to the clear benefits of teaching History withmuseums.In 2007-08 strong professional development for teachers supported the project core of free outreach to schools andsubsidised museum visits to support History at Key Stage 2. As in previous years, the 50 classes that took part camefrom schools in the areas of highest economic deprivation in the county. In a region of limited public transport, thesimple idea of providing a contribution to schools’ travel costs has been an enduring success for Partners in Time.The outreach work, combined with the subsidised visits to the partner sites, led to overwhelmingly positive feedbackfrom teachers:‘It was wonderful to see disaffected learners being motivated and inspired. Real “Kodak” moments to treasure.’‘Two of the boys asked if they could skip lunch so that they could go on with activities.’All partners extended the appeal of the project to the families of participating pupils, running special open days andevents.Partners in Time - Family Dayat IWM DuxfordCORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-08 5


SCHOOLSInnovation: Conflict & Disability at IWM LondonDuring 2007-08, the Museum has run the Conflict & Disability project, part of a national programme of nine linkedprojects called Rethinking Disability Representation (RDR), led by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries atthe University of Leicester (RCMG). Principal funding came from the Heritage Lottery Fund and NESTA.www.le.ac.uk/ms/research/rcmg.htmlThe IWM London Education team have developed four new curriculum sessions looking at issues of disabilityrepresented in the Collections of the Museum.The four new sessions are:• Welcome Home – Literacy workshop comparing Collections evidence with Wilfred Owen’s view of life after theFirst World War in his poem Disabled.• Necessity Breeds Invention (with the Hunterian Museum) – History workshop examining attitudes to visibledifference through the incredible story of the Guinea Pig Club, a support group set up by 1940s airmen treated bypioneering plastic surgeon Archie McIndoe.• Disability Rights (with the Parliamentary Education Service) – Citizenship workshop, considering the campaign fordisabled rights and assessing the Museum itself for access as Disability Discrimination Inspectors.• The War on Nerves – A two-day workshop for Gifted and Talented students studying the emotional and mentaloutcome of warfare. First Gulf War veteran Allen Parton contributed his own experiences to this session.All four sessions have been designed to meet the aims of the RDR programme, to examine and contest negativestereotypes of disabled people, and try new approaches using the Museum’s Collections in relation to disability.Students working as Disability Discrimination ActInspectors at IWM London, during the ‘DisabilityRights’ session from the Conflict & DisabilityprojectCORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-086


SCHOOLSStudents examine a flying jacket as part of the‘Necessity Breeds Invention’ session from theConflict & Disability projectLike all IWM education sessions, RDR has been based on direct engagement with Collections. However, thedifference in Conflict & Disability has been to assess or reassess the items used in light of the social model of disability.This model argues that a person with impairment is actually disabled by the attitudes and barriers that society puts intheir way, not by their personal condition.The sessions were developed in consultation with both teachers and disabled people, including Graeae Theatre Companywww.graeae.org. The sessions are now included in the IWM London education programme, and the projectleaders have visited other IWM branches, training colleagues to incorporate elements into their own workshops.This project has also helped IWM London initiate a review of our offer for secondary schools, and ideas from Conflict& Disability are already influencing both the informal and community programmes.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-087


4. FamiliesThe Museum has consciously increased provision of family activities over thepast six years, and such activities are now firmly established at all branches.PeoplePrincipally offered at school holidays and weekends, people can choose from ambitious art to wartime crafts, meetingveterans and exploring items from the Collections in the company of live interpreters. Although ideas often start withchildren, the Museum encourages intergenerational learning, both within families and with veterans and eyewitnesses ofpast conflicts.PlacesExhibitions - such as The Animals’ War at IWM North during 2007 - provide an environment in which events for allages can be presented, such as animation activities linked to special film screenings. A lively programme with veteransnow takes place regularly in AirSpace at IWM Duxford, alongside the special family days offered as part of Partners inTime. HMS Belfast runs family activities on most weekends of the year and every half term. Events include workingwith interpreters, veterans and actors, engaging the public in a greater understanding of the life of a ship afloat.Family learning with the Wavy Navy interactors onboard HMS Belfast. ‘Wavy Navy’ was a slangexpression for the Royal Naval Reserve andVolunteer Reserve, because of the wavy sleevestripes used to indicate rank.PerformanceThe Museum has to balance providing enjoyable public programmes with our goal to help people understand thefull impact of modern war. Although numbers of children taking part in informal learning increased by 2 per cent to102,234 in 2007-08, numbers of adults were down by some 14 per cent from the previous year. However, ourgrowing outreach programmes into local communities are working to turn this around.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-088


FAMILIESInnovation: Dig for Victory at CMCWRIn 2007 a partnership between the Royal Parks and Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms (CMCWR) saw atemporary allotment built in St James’s Park, London, just five minutes from the underground War Rooms.The allotment has Second World War planting next to more modern crops, as well as a replica Anderson air raidshelter. Family activities were run at the allotment throughout the summer of 2007, including expert talks from RoyalParks gardeners and performances from interpreters-in-role bringing the home front to life.Dig for Victory is about more than family fun in the fresh air. Thanks to funding from DfES (now DCSF) and CABEOpen Spaces, a teachers’ pack was designed to give schools all the information they need to create their own Dig forVictory themed garden and use the ‘outdoor classroom’ to deliver the curriculum.Dig for Victory was a Second World War campaignto help combat food shortage in Britain bypromoting the planting of allotments in gardens andon public land. The campaign addressed issues thatstill concern people today – having access to fresh,healthy food; being active and living sustainably.School children get stuck in to the allotment at theDig for Victory opening in St James’s ParkDig for Victory chimes perfectly with the broader public agendas of Learning Outside the Classroom and ‘being healthy’in Every Child Matters. In September 2007, staff from CMCWR co-hosted a professional development day forteachers in partnership with the Royal Parks and Royal Horticultural Society.Dig for Victory 2: The War on Waste takes place in St James’s Park from May to the end of September 2008,connecting the wartime need to ‘make do and mend’ with today’s issues of recycling and environmentally-friendly living.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-089


5. Adult learnersCompared with schools programmes for specific Key Stages and curriculumsubjects, our work for adult learners is often less straightforward to categorise.It includes lectures for students, reminiscence for community elders, ContinuingProfessional Development and learning through volunteering.Adult learning is also not simply something that the Museum provides for otherpeople. In developing new partnerships and projects, our staff constantlyincrease their own knowledge and skills.People: Professional development for teachersProviding Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for teachers benefits the Museum in turn.The annual IWM Fellowship in Holocaust Education brings together twenty-five dedicated educators. Each develops anew educational project, which together make a significant contribution to Holocaust education in the United Kingdomand beyond. Projects are inspired by intensive seminars at IWM London and at Yad Vashem’s International School forHolocaust Studies in Jerusalem, as well as visits to sites in Poland and Lithuania.Led by the Museum’s Holocaust Education team, the Fellowship has won national and international acclaim. Fellowshipprojects in 2007 included a resource pack about ‘Geographies of the Holocaust’, online teaching and learning resourcesfor Holocaust Memorial Day, and the development of materials and techniques to enable teaching about theHolocaust to students with learning difficulties.Partnerships: Supporting studentsWe believe that giving young adults a fresh insight into the range of Museum activity and developing their culturalcreativity is a key part of keeping the Museum relevant for all ages. The seventh annual Student Film Festival tookplace in 2007 at IWM London, with successful entrants all using footage from the Museum Collections in their work.A project based on IWM London’s Weapons of Mass Communication: War Posters exhibition saw young people fromLambeth learning graphic design techniques from students at the London College of Communication, part ofUniversity of the Arts.Places: expert voices at our branchesFor informal adult learning, our popular perennial programmes include the Churchill Lecture Series, with a 2007contribution from Curtis Roosevelt, grandson of America’s wartime president. IWM Duxford Special Interest Days in2007 included the Falklands Campaign and Aircraft Systems. HMS Belfast hosted History Evenings with visitingspeakers to link in with the on-board exhibitions Ghosts of Jutland and the Eyewitness Falklands, alongside other talkson the Gallipoli landings and Belfast’s role in the Arctic convoys.Innovation: Cultural heritage skillsThe Live & Learn project at IWM North aims to make the cultural sector more accessible to learners of all ages andabilities. The two-year project is closely related to the In Touch programme at IWM North, which helps people insocial need join IWM North’s public volunteer team. Live & Learn has adapted the volunteers’ cultural heritage courseinto a shorter, flexible scheme aimed at leaders of community groups. As with the volunteers, the course aims toincrease leaders’ skills and confidence to help bring their groups to visit museums, libraries and archives.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0810


ADULT LEARNERSThe Live & Learn course evaluator and a courseparticipant investigating a First World Wargreeting card from the handling collection. Thiswas part of the handling session, ‘Learning fromthe Real Thing’, which illustrated the resourcesavailable and different learning styles thatparticipants can use with their groups whenthey bring them on a visit to the Museum.Innovation: InSite Professional Development from Their Past Your FutureLike the Fellowship in Holocaust Education, the new InSite programme is an intensive development scheme for schooland museum educators, devised by the project team from Their Past Your Future (TPYF).Since 2004, the TPYF project has taken groups of young people on visits to sitesof conflict and commemoration across the globe. This practical and pedagogicalexpertise was combined in piloting InSite in 2007. Just like a TPYF trip for youngpeople, InSite is ‘immersive learning’, with time at both the Imperial War Museumand overseas in Germany and Eastern Europe.InSite focuses on learning outside the classroom through museums, heritage sitesand cityscapes, to improve educators’ understanding of post-1945 Europeanhistory. This is a period that is neglected both in formal and informal education,but is crucial for understanding the world today.Refined as a result of the pilot, InSite will be run again in 2008 and 2009 as partof the current TPYF Big Lottery Fund grant. InSite has built on the success of theFellowship in Holocaust Education and places the Imperial War Museum at the forefront of professional developmentin heritage education. These are some thoughts from participants about the pilot programme in 2007:‘A terrific way to begin to explore the Cold War and the impact of the division of Germany.’‘Exploring issues around memorials and their significance in Germany was particularly relevant coming from NorthernIreland where memorials can be very complex and problematic, but important to explore and teach about.’‘The incident planner session was excellent, and the object handling session was thought-provoking. These sessions,alongside group discussion and introduction to ILFA , helped to prepare the team for the practical and theoreticalelements of the trip.’ILFA – Inspiring Learning for All – is a planning and evaluation framework used throughout the Imperial War Museumand the wider heritage sector.

6. Community programmesWar cuts across human experience, whether as an eyewitness, combatant,refugee or citizen of a country affected by conflict. In other words, the ImperialWar Museum can be relevant to everyone.The Museum now has learning programmes specifically for communities local toits branches in London, Cambridgeshire and Manchester. These have cut acrosswork with schools, families and adult learners.Diverse communitiesThe Strategic Commissioning project Journeys of Change at IWM London has explored the history of black andCaribbean people through the lens of twentieth century conflict.Six groups of young people each selected an object in the main atrium gallery at IWM London as a starting point fortheir project: pupils from John Loughborough School chose the Polaris missile as a symbol of the post-1945 era andused archives from the George Padmore Institute to learn more about Black Rights movements in the 1960s and1970s, alongside Cold War material from the Imperial War Museum.Young people taking part in the Journeys of Changeproject leave handmade poppies among the gravesof members of the British West Indian Regiment inSeaford, East SussexNew connectionsCORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0812


COMMUNITY PROGRAMMESThe Moving Minds project partnered IWM North with the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law at theGalleries of Justice in Nottingham. Four groups of young people – three in Manchester, one in Nottingham – workedon projects about how people’s identity may be affected by conflict or crime. They created an online network ofinterviews, blogs, images and webcasts using the Radiowaves service, www.radiowaves.co.uk.The intergenerational meeting with veterans at IWM North on 11 November provoked the strongest responses.One of the teachers commented:‘[It] had a profound effect. The pupils were totally engaged throughout the day and gained a great deal by talking tothe veterans. It certainly brought home the harsh realities of warfare.’The experience was also cathartic for the veterans:‘It was my first Remembrance Day since 1972. The piper got to me and [my daughter] just squeezed my leg and said“I am here Dad”. The day was very good; the students were very good and respectful to the veterans…’Skills for LifeOutreach staff from IWM Duxford have worked with the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to support the Skills forLife Improvement Programme at HMP Edmunds Hill. Portraits of prisoners of war were used for inspiration inEdmunds Hill art classes, and drawings by the prisoners were displayed in the new AirSpace hangar at IWM Duxford.One prisoner has decided to go on to art college upon his release, as a direct result of the support he received inprison and the inspiration from IWM Collections.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0813


7. InnovationSeveral projects from 2007-08 are continuing into 2008-09 and beyond.Their Past Your Future (TPYF)Two major online resources will be produced by TPYF in 2008 and 2009. Through My Eyes looks at the effect of warin displacing people through individual stories of conflict, identity and belonging. In 2009, to coincide with the twentiethanniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, TPYF will create a new resource casting fresh eyes on the history of theCold War.Students from Godalming College pay their respects at thegrave of Peter Ramm in Kanchanaburi war cemetery, Thailand.Mr Ramm was a wartime friend of Mr Eric Adie, a veteran whocame to meet the students as part of their preparation fortheir TPYF trip to Thailand and Australia in 2008. He asked thestudents to visit his friend’s grave.There will be more commemorative visits with young people; trips to Japan and France will take place in 2008.The TPYF team have also taken the lead in producing a DVD resource on behalf of the Ministry of Defence to markthe passing of the First World War generation. This resource will be sent to every school in the UK in time for theninetieth anniversary of the Armistice in November 2008. Their Past Your Future will also fund local communityprojects at all five Museum branches in 2008-09.Radiowaves.co.ukIn 2007, TPYF added the Radiowaves online blogging and networking service for schools to their overseas trips.Students visiting France and Canada interviewed veterans and recorded their thoughts to share with the rest of thenational Radiowaves community.Students from Godalming College interview Mr EricAdie, a veteran of the Second World War in the FarEast, for their Radiowaves web stationIn using Radiowaves, TPYF have followed IWM North, who first used the service for Moving Minds in 2005 - a perfectexample of sharing good practice across the Museum. Radiowaves will also be used by the Street Genius workplacement project at IWM London in summer 2008.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0814


INNOVATIONStreet Genius at IWM LondonThanks to funding from the Southbank Cultural Quarter Some Other Way Forward programme (SOWF), four youngpeople from Lambeth and Southwark will have a completely new kind of summer job: creating an exhibition with theImperial War Museum.They will work with curators, educators and graphic designers to produce an exhibition that will be displayed in venuesacross their two boroughs. The Street Genius project ties in with the Museum’s work to mark the ninetieth anniversaryof the end of the First World War.National Museums Online learning Project (NMOLP)This is an innovative partnership project bringing together nine national museums and galleries. The project willproduce a hundred ‘webquests’ - resources for schools across Key Stages and curriculum subjects, helping students andteachers use the wealth of national collections digitised and online.Social web tools for lifelong learners will also be provided, allowing people to search across the nine partner museums,then discuss and share the wonderful objects they find. The project will launch to the public in March 2009.Strategic Commissioning funded by DCMS/DCSFThe three Museum projects have built on their prior experience in 2008–09. Substantial funding from two governmentdepartments means these projects are key to our continuing innovation in learning:• Journeys of Change now includes all three Museum branches in London, and we are working with Brent Museumand Archives and Hackney Museum to pilot projects targeted at supplementary schools.• Partners in Time shifts from Key Stage 2 History to create resources for secondary-level Literacy, a project withpotentially sector-wide significance.• Moving Minds will echo Street Genius by letting young people ‘take over the Museum’, as the participants will becurating a high-profile exhibition.Young people from Lambeth researchingsoldiers buried in Seaford Cemetery on adatabase at the Seaford Museum and HeritageSociety as part of the Journeys of Changeproject in 2007CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0815


INNOVATIONScience and technology in IWM Duxford’s AirSpaceThe amazing new AirSpace Exhibition Hall at IWM DuxfordLevers, wheels and axles, pulleys, cogs and screws are all found in the machines at IWM Duxford. Practical Science andTechnology activities for Key Stage 2 use K’Nex and Lego to help pupils understand mechanisms more fully.In December 2007, Duxford hosted the UK Eastern region First Lego League Robotics Challenge for the second time,but for the first time in the new AirSpace building. The new teaching rooms were used for judging, whilst the ‘Pits’ areabelow was buzzing with activity all day.The 14 teams (including one from Greece) had three months to prepare for the event, using the LEGO MIND-STORMS Robotics Invention System. Team members were aged between 9 and 16 years and were sponsored byteachers or adult mentors. They were scored on the technical quality of their robot, a presentation, general teamworkand a tournament in which the robots complete set tasks.The First Lego League will be back at Duxford in 2008, as will the National K’Nex Championships.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0816


8. Data 2007-08The Imperial War Museum reports on a number of Key PerformanceIndicators (KPIs) to the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS),as a condition of our grant from government. In 2007-08, the KPIs forlearning were:• Learners in on-site programmes• Learners in outreach programmes• Children aged 15 years and under in learning programmes, both on-site and through outreachAcross the five branches of the Museum, on-site learning was down 6 per cent overall against 2006-07 to441,202, as fewer adults took part. Staff turnover at Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms and IWMDuxford had a significant impact on what could be offered.However, child learners were up by 5 per cent from 2006-07 to 315,576. Whilst numbers of schoolchildrentaking part were down slightly by 3 per cent to 242,153, there was an increase in on-site informal learning forchildren. This was particularly noticeable at IWM London where a shift from formal to informal participation wasaffected by the timing of the Easter school holidays.Outreach work has been exceptional across the branches, with notable mentions for Dig for Victory at ChurchillMuseum and Cabinet War Rooms as well as IWM London and IWM North community learning programmes.Branch outreach learners rose by 142 per cent from 10,579 to 25,589.Web learners (measured as those web visitors spending 10 minutes or more on the website) exceeded the2006-07 total by 8 per cent, rising to 349,855.In 2008-09 the Imperial War Museum will be streamlining its counting practice in line with guidance from DCMS.Although the quantity of learners is a fair measure, the emphasis at the Museum will always be on maintaining andenhancing the quality of our learning service.CORPORATE EDUCATION ANNUAL REPORT 2007-0817
