Reporter 14-18: An app for young visitors !
From the age of 8
The Museum of the Great War now offers children a visit with their age, thanks to a tablet app.
This app Reporter 14-18, is part of the will of the Historial to develop appropriate mediations through digital tools, to provide the keys to understanding the museum to different audiences. Accessible for the same entrance fee, this App makes the Historial more attractive to children, families or groups.
This project, initiated and led by the Historial of the Great War, was achieved thanks to the financial aid of EDF (Picardy Regional Delegation), and to the support of Interreg European Funds, the Archives of Memory and Heritage Department of the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Culture.
Achieving the App has brought together the expertise of
– the teams of the Historial,
– the engineering pedagogical mediation and multimedia tools of two specialists based in Montreal (Helene Caura http: // lefrenchtoast .wordpress.com
– a Flemish company (www.explio.be) for adapting the audio in four languages
– and technological skills of the young agency Lille Awak-Studio for technical development.
The application invites the child to take the role of a reporter during the Great War and to follow the story and the journey of three soldiers : Jules, the French soldier, Johann, the German soldier and Walter, the British soldier .
The application is available in 4 languages : French , English , German and Dutch . The application Reporter 14-18 is now available on Google Play! You can download it for free on your tablet to prepare your visit.
Once in the museum, you simply connect to free WiFi , and the visit can begin!
