ShareWales.com; “Historic Royal Palaces, within their education department, make use of QR codes through an engaging and interactive project called ‘Palace Explorers’. Palace Explorers combines social media, digital engagement, teaching on and off-site, and draws on the expertise of Historic Royal Palaces’ finest, including members of Access & Learning, the Yeoman Warder body, Past Pleasures, and other talented facilitators.
The premise behind the project is that students are on a seven week quest to release the Bookkeeper, a fictional character imprisoned at the Tower for losing all the great stories from the Tower Story Book, and to achieve this they must become Palace Explorers, experts on the Tower’s existing stories, as well as their own. Only this way, the Tower Story Book can be filled again and the Bookkeeper can be released. At the same time, parents of students are working on a range of photographic projects inspired by the Tower, helping them to create their own digital stories while drawing on themes that bring the Tower community and the school community together to celebrate shared heritage.”
