The furness at Etruria Industrial Museum

Following their recent trip to Etruria Industrial Museum, Weston Coyney Junior School, and Longton high CLC have been working together to produce a website about their visit. Lynne Cauley of The Museum, working with Tom Pinecoffin of the Stoke-on-Trent Museums service came up to assist Phil with the project.

Whilst on their trip the students took photographs and video footage to add to their website. Tom and Phil created a template for the students to work on and created a generic user area from where all the students could access photos and add text to to the template.

The class were broken down into groups, each to create a specific section of the site. By midday the site was looking splendid. All the groups had written content and added images using

Macromedia Dreamweaver, which is a complex web building tool.

Tom said that he was impressed that the students had learned such a complex tool in such a short time. Phil has created a CD with the website on and there is also a DVD of the trip held at Weston Coyney Junior School.
