NMB education programme to continue online

An online professional development programme for teachers and parents of schoolchildren is to continue online, the National Museum of Bermuda said today.

The “Moving the Needle” series will later this month feature a look at how Bermuda built a maritime economy and the early settlement and growth of the country between the first settlement in 1609 and 1800.

Lisa Howie, the NMB director of learning and engagement, said: “We have listened to feedback from teachers that an opportunity to work with colleagues across the local education systems is most beneficial.

“This workshop will provide that space for interaction and dialogue, while focused on both the lecture content and the Prudent Rebels teacher resource guide that we have created.

“This workshop and the others in the series aims to provide user-friendly, well-designed classroom resources that are closely linked to the national curricula.

“Our goal is that teachers take away ideas and strategies on how to include important historical information on Bermuda's early communities into their unit/lesson plans.”

The 90 minute workshop will be held on Zoom on July 24, starting at 10am and will be based on a free lecture held the day before.

The first module's lecture, The Early Atlantic Age: 1250-1609, was held in March and can be found at www.nmb.bm/lecture.
