What is My Learning?

My Learning offers free National Curriculum-linked resources for teachers and learners, inspired by the collections of arts, heritage and cultural organisations. Teachers can use resources both as stand-alone teaching aids and as planning tools to prepare for a visit. New resources are continually being added. 

Background to My Learning

The My Learning website was a Renaissance Yorkshire Hub initiative. In 2003 research carried out by MLA Yorkshire showed that access to online resources would encourage more schools to visit museums. Teachers requested resources that they could use both as stand-alone teaching aids and in conjunction with visits. 

My Learning was launched in 2006 and has gradually expanded beyond Yorkshire to include resources from across the UK. In 2018 the website underwent a total re-development and re-design, to provide the best possible experience for teachers. 'Work Boards' were introduced, a new feature enabling teachers to collect and save resources from all over My Learning on themed digital boards, to help save time and to promote the sharing of content with colleagues.
The website is currently funded through the Arts Council England and managed via Leeds Museums and Galleries.
