How Can Museums Support the Curriculum for
Excellence?
Learning outside the classroom is a key recommendation
within the Curriculum for Excellence.
By visiting a museum or gallery children have the
opportunity to meet new people and gain confidence in
exploring the world beyond the classroom.
Object based learning has an important contribution to
make to education in both the specific sense of acquiring
new skills such as enquiry, problem solving and analytical
awareness and in the broader sense of encouraging
children to think critically and develop their powers of
observation and concentration.
All areas of the curriculum can be supported by a museum
visit.
