The aim of the Bradman Educational Program is to develop a positive attitude towards the cultural experience of visiting a museum, namely the Bradman International Cricket Hall of Fame, leading to:
- An enthusiasm for the game of cricket,
- A positive sense of self as a sports person,
- Identify the values the game of cricket delivers (courage, honour, humility, integrity, determination),
- Integrate an educational field trip with a topic or unit of work, to provide context and embed learning in accordance with the outcomes of the national curriculum,
- Identify objectives relating to knowledge, skills and/or attitudes specific to the collection and displays in the museum,
- Familiarise students with a museum setting so that they become accustomed to focussing on exhibits that research and conserve material evidence for future generations,
- Interact with and respond to the collection of the museum through computer technology and hands-on exhibits,
- Discuss and collate the information gathered from the museum visit,
- Explore primary and secondary sources and deduce meaning from each,
- Develop the understanding of the cultural relevance of the museum,
- Recognise new and familiar material within the museum,
- Apply problem-solving strategies while interacting with the museum exhibits,
- Link moments in the museum timeline to world events, and
- Expand positive and informed values and attitudes towards themselves, others and towards the exhibition spaces in the museum and towards the game, laws, and spirit of cricket.
