The Big Houses of Monaghan – A Virtual Learning Quest

This will be a collaborative project between Monaghan County Museum and AmmA Creative Learning. During the summer of 2019, our partnership enabled a group of young people to create a virtual replica of the former Rossmore Castle using Minecraft. We will expand on this project, by making the castle available as an online world that can accessed by teachers and young people.

This online world will act as a backdrop for a number of learning activities (referred to as quests) which will allow students to attain historical and cultural knowledge through a journey of interaction. The targeted participants will be young people from the Monaghan and the surrounding area. It will be available as an online resource, suitable for access by individuals at home or groups of students in school.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
