Virtual Classrooms: Engaging and Income Generating

In March 2020, as the UK began its first Covid-19 lockdown the Jewish Museum London concentrated its expertise in digital learning to create a new Virtual Classroom experience for schools. As one of the first to launch this type of programme we created engaging and participatory virtual activities that retained over 40% of our usual school visits and also retained income generation of over £17,000 in the first year. In this practical session we will showcase our approach and share our statistics on how our model has continued beyond the lockdowns into a core income generating learning programme.
