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.
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.
“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.
“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).
Sphero Ball Coding.

Ben Hayden, Year 6 Teacher, Digital Learning Lead – Monkhouse Primary School
“Working in partnership with the North Shields Heritology Project provided a wealth of opportunities for our children through the production of a play based around life on the fish quay, as well as learning about the importance of the Wooden Dolly. We found that the high levels of interest from our children was a result of the knowledge and enthusiasm promoted by the Heritologists and their extended volunteers.”
All students attending the workshop will receive an “Honorary Heritologist” certificate as a record of their involvement in discovering the heritage of North Shields using Technology.
