Ankara’s Ancient Education Museum

You might recall the well-known practice of using the human skeleton in science lessons when you consider the educational resources utilized in classrooms. Many cherished artifacts served as vivid teaching material for many pupils before technology simplified visual learning.

In this line, a museum in the Turkish capital Ankara showcases 1,300 technological and practical course materials made and used since 1965, bringing visitors on a journey of educational equipment and materials.

Turkey's educational material requirements are met by the Ministry of National Education Course Material Production Center, which was founded 61 years ago and is responsible for designing, producing, and distributing course materials that are in line with the curricula of schools at all levels, from preschool to high school.

The materials created in the Course Material Production Center's various workshops are shown in the museum. The educational artifacts are arranged chronologically according to their historical significance in Turkish education.

Ayşe Polat, a child development and education specialist, in talks with Anadolu Agency, stated that the museum is the first and only institution of its kind in Turkey, containing a wide range of resources for preschool, mathematics, special education, science, and social sciences.

Polat added that the materials inspire children to explore, examine, watch, and listen to the course content. Instructional tools enhance children's motivation and make teaching more exciting and engaging. Additionally, by encouraging children to express their original creativity, the many materials with various qualities help youngsters to build their problem-solving abilities.

The majority of the teaching materials, according to Polat, are used in physics, and the exhibits in the museum are those that inspired students to love and master the subjects of science, mathematics, history, geography, and even music.

Despite the fact that the museum has exhibits that help youngsters with their hand-eye coordination and receptive and expressive language skills, according to Polat, visitors are particularly drawn to the human body, animals preserved in polyester, the embossed typewriter, and the ring-spinning game.

It is important to take a step back and marvel at how far technology has come.
