Digital Panopticon PhD student Emma Watkins (University of Liverpool) has created an educational resource on transportation for A-Level students.  Throughout 2017, Emma developed this resource by running schools workshops in the north-west of the UK.

The first part of the resource, a set of educational videos on convict transportation, are already available on the Digital Panopticon website.  The second part of the resource, a workshop on convict transportation and how students can use the Digital Panopticon website in the A-level classroom, is now available from Emma’s website:  https://emmadwatkins.wordpress.com/educational-resource/

This resource would be suitable for exploring the EdExcel A-Level paper, ‘Britain: Losing and Gaining an Empire, 1763-1914’ – specifically in relation to the section, ‘The Birth of British Australia, 1788-1829’.
