IWM’s 1914 Centenary Partnership – UPDATE

Since the Government announced their plans for the 1914-18 centenary, things have been hotting up at the IWM’s http://www.1914.org website.

A new project has just been started by Exeter Uni to ask English and History teachers what they think about the First War and how it is taught– if you are a teacher, on know someone who is please take time to fill in the survey at: http://ww1intheclassroom.exeter.ac.uk/ it will hopefully bring up some interesting results!

Also on the IWM site are a number of interesting podcasts http://www.1914.org/podcasts/ and the partnership side of the site has release a WW1 reading list http://members.1914.org/2013/05/30/first-world-war-reading-list/ .

Outside of IWM the Government have launched their own centenary website https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/first-world-war-centenary where all ‘official’ announcements will be posted.

If you are not already signed up as a partner on the official Imperial War Museum’s 1914.org website, then we recommend you do so!  You get access to a community of over 1,140 organisations who are now signed up across the country, as well as use of free resources, and access to use the official IWM 1914 partnership logo on all your related activities.
