The University of Bath's Education Technology Archive (ETA) is a growing collection of technology equipment, carefully collected, preserved, and restored for educational benefit.
The mission of the ETA
The ETA seeks to demystify educational technology through the preservation of historical equipment. It seeks to bring technology back to life within a practical setting so that the knowledge, innovation and cultural value are not lost or forgotten.
It is common for institutions to have outdated equipment in stores since the equipment is often replaced after five years and technical skills and knowledge have moved on. Most of this equipment is usually recycled but some of it can be extended beyond its typical life cycle through the ETA, offering an opportunity to build on practical skills long term.
