Teachers Resources

Calling all teachers and students! We know that this is a bit of a strange time for us all, but we all still have to learn and develop our studies. We have a wide range of resources for teachers and students available to download and view right here.

Online Learning: we have a fantastic Online Learning section to our website, it includes nine audio visual animations with interactives on nine historical sites in Dublin. It is an excellent school resource to do at home. There are three sections on the Vikings, and five on the Anglo Normans, and there are plenty of quizzes and hotspots to keep pupils entertained while learning. As well as as the primary school section, there is also a secondary school section and one for everyone who wants to learn more.

Primary School Learning packs: These are available to support learning by students in a multisensory and unique way, encouraging all students to engage with the exhibition and gain both analytical and social skills. We have pre-visit activity sheets to use at home or before your visit, and post activity sheets for after.

Dublin City Walls App: Dublinia, along with Dublin City Council, has developed a free smartphone app that is available for download from Apple’s App store.  This app allows people to learn about the extraordinary history of medieval Dublin by taking a walk around the city’s medieval walls using GPS to map their route.  You can also stop at a number of different hotspots along the route and experience animated sections of the historic walls. The Dublin City Walls app will be available for Android users later this year.
