A NEW SOLUTION FOR A CONTINUUM BETWEEN THE VISITING SITE AND THE CLASSROOM, ON SITE OR REMOTELY.
Dedicated to school audiences, WEZIT EDUCATION accompanies classes before, during and after their visit to the museum. Composed of a resource portal, a visit device and a digital platform, this innovative solution offers a continuum of experience between the museum and the school activity. WEZIT EDUCATION LIVE opens up the same experience to classes unable to come to the museum.
WEZIT is involved in a number of international research projects, and our partners in research, the private sector and pilot museums have been involved in WEZIT EDUCATION experiments to define its technical and pedagogical requirements.
AN OPEN, INTERACTIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE with WEZIT EDUCATION, the museum offers its school audiences a genuine continuum between the classroom and the visit itself, with before, during and after activities.
GROWING MUSEUM VISITATION
Students, inspired by the class visit, then encourage their families to come and visit the museum, thus helping to boost attendance.
PUPILS TAKING PART IN THEIR VISIT
For students, passive tours are transformed into active, creative learning experiences, thanks to a range of missions (journalist, exhibition curator…) adapted to each grade level. The museum can adapt an existing mission to match its collections, or develop a customized mission.
WEZIT EDUCATION facilitates the management of school visits, by providing teachers with content and a dashboard for the tour guide. It also promotes student autonomy during the visit.
