Scran - part of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland - aims to provide educational access to digital materials representing our material culture and history.
The site hosts 360,000 images, movies and sounds from museums, galleries, archives and the media and is growing on a daily bases. Images of tigers, Charlie Chaplin, Sean Connery, a Degas, a Dali, images of war or whaling, standing stones, a pint of beer, an integrated circuit, line drawings of an acorn or an adrenal gland demonstrate the range. David James, Curriculum Consultant, has also worked on developing a more local section for Bradford schools on SCRAN consisting of images of Bradford past and present and places of interest such as Saltaire.
All the images are checked before being published so children can safely search for a wide range of images without coming across any inappropriate material. The images are also copyright free and of a high quality.
All here schools have access to SCRAN – please visit and select your school from the drop down menu.
