As part of our engagement programme, the ‘Heritologists’ can work with your school to combine a little bit of North Shields heritage with a little bit of technology.

“The Heritology Project adds something different to the learning process, and we support their aim of attracting young people to Heritage through emerging technologies, whilst highlighting the future opportunities that exist for them in the Tech Sector.“
Laura Dickinson .eLearning Lead Practitioner – North Tyneside Learning Trust

Our Heritage Programme includes topics such as:-

The Wooden Dolly.
Shipbuilding and industries of the River Tyne.
Local artists such as Victor Noble Rainbird, George Horton and John Chambers.
The traditional trades of the Fish Quay.
Saving lives at Sea.
The role of North Shields in World War 2.
Music on the Quay.
Fishing Industry and Fiddler’s Green Fishermen’s Memorial.

We combine the Heritage talks with technology to make it informative, interactive and fun.

“Heritology” is a word we’ve made up – a combination of Heritage and Technology

We have workshops that are suitable for 8-14 year old students and can work around your busy and tight schedules which tie in with the curriculum.

The technology we incorporate could include:
Stop Motion Animation.
Use of Augmented Reality.
Use of Virtual Reality.
Making a 3D digital model of the heritage topic (Photogrammetry).
3D Modelling.
Sphero Ball Coding.

Watch our video about the Digital Dolly Workshop – produced as part of #HistoricHighStreets

North Shields Digital Dolly

Schoolgirls used I-pads to capture 2D images to create a 3D model of the Wooden Dolly in Northumberland Square.

All students attending our workshops will receive an “Honorary Heritologist” certificate as a record of their involvement in discovering the heritage of North Shields using Technology.

We made this Stop Motion Animation with an after school group of Year 9 pupils at Marden High School
