What is My Learning?
My Learning offers National Curriculum-linked resources for teachers and learners, inspired by the collections of arts, heritage and cultural organisations. Teachers can use resources both as stand-alone teaching aids and as planning tools to prepare for a visit. New resources are continually being added.
How to search the site
You can search for resources by subject, age group (categorised by Key Stages), organisation or specific keywords. Use the search box on the top right of each page to locate specific themes and topics, images or resources from particular organisations.
You will find a map and an A-Z list of organisations with resources on the site via the Contributing Organisations tab on the top navigation bar. Each contributor has a page detailing visitor information, contact details and education programmes.
Background to My Learning
The My Learning website was a Renaissance Yorkshire Hub initiative. In 2003 research carried out by MLA Yorkshire showed that access to online resources would encourage more schools to visit museums. Teachers requested resources that they could use both as stand-alone teaching aids and in conjunction with visits.
My Learning was launched in 2006 and has gradually expanded beyond Yorkshire to include resources from across the UK. The website is currently funded through Arts Council England's Renaissance Major Partner initiative, managed via Leeds Museums and Galleries.
