new research project: 3D datasets from Ancient Cultures

114

LNM is excited to be part of a newly-funded collaborative research project with colleagues from Monash’s ‘Centre for Ancient Cultures’ and from Museums Victoria. The project – funded by the ‘Robert Blackwood Research Seed Scheme’ – is focusing on the the educational possibilities of using digitized artefacts in various classroom and community settings. The research team will oversee the 3D scanning of various physical artefacts from museum collections, and explore how the resulting digital datasets are appropriated by teachers and learners in schools and university settings. The research team includes Jessie Birkett-Rees, Heather Graybehl and Andrew Connor (Monash Centre for Ancient Studies), Linda Allen (Museums Victoria), and LNM’s Neil Selwyn and Michael Henderson.
