Unfortunately, due to copyright issues, we were unable to record the
Elluminate session from the National Gallery. 

Ingrid has kindly passed on a few links mentioned in her talk. 

There were a number of ideas for developing tasks based on Gallery resources
and Ingrid is only too happy to support anyone with these or other projects.



For a short vignette introducing the original manga see Short Film-Asian


The humour, sheer craziness and immediacy of the manga drawings...also
students' exposure to this genre of animation through popular media, make
these an appealing starting point for developing their own works.

The Art Start films in themselves could provide an interesting project for
students to develop their own video introduction to aspects of the gallery
or its collection for a young audience. This would involve writing content,
scripting, preparing video assets and more.


A fantastic interactive multimedia resource, which can serve as a stepping
stone for students developing their own work is: Stories From Old Japan. 


This award winning education resource accompanied the exhibition Pictures of
the Floating World (2005) which presented more than 100 Japanese woodblock
prints from the NGV's collection. This resource features an interactive
animation that allows students to create their own stories using the
characters and backgrounds of the Pictures of the Floating World. It also
provides background information on the Ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock print)
art form and the heroic and supernatural characters it depicted.

Stories From Old Japan is a simple animation system that allows students to
create stories using the characters and backgrounds of the Pictures of the
Floating World. It works particularly well as a small group exercise on an
electronic whiteboard.


Gallery audio guides can be found on iTunesU. These can be used as examples
for students to script their own audio guides, curating their own tour of
works in the collection based on a particular theme or interest, for a
defined audience...collecting content for broadcast or publication and
preparing audio assets.


Coming soon on our ngv website in the Learn section is Views and Voices,
where students will be able to submit their responses to the gallery


WE really want teachers and students to use the collection in new and
exciting ways, so please talk to us about your ideas and the possibilities!
