About Blue Blood
Blue Blood Academy, Vordingborg
The Danish Castle Center, Vordingborg and NOUS have jointly developed an interactive learning platform for students, and its title alone already promises great excite- ment: The Blue Blood Academy. Teachers select tasks from a pool to create an age-appropriate tour of the exhibition for their students, who then have to solve these tasks creatively, with the help of the NOUSguides. Why was King Valdemar buried in Vordingborg? And what induced Hellwig, a duke‘s daughter, to join a convent? Answers to these questions are required in photo or video format, stories must be written and comments must be collected...
The visit to the exhibition becomes an exciting journey through the history of the Danish Middle Ages. Teachers can track the students’ progress and results from a central location and can even write comments via push messages. While the students are moving around the exhibition space and solving tasks, the teachers can already start the digital follow-up work. And if there is no time left for questions and summarizing on-site after all that activity, the results are simply sent home – adventure guaranteed!
