Until Sunday, Dakar is in "summit" mode on the occasion of the 15the Francophonie summit, in Senegal. A delegation from New Brunswick, including teachers, takes part in the activities and demonstrates the impact of their “Acadiepedia, taking its place on the Web” project.

Roberto Gauvin, director of the Haut-Madawaska Learning Center, and Danis Michaud, teacher at the same establishment, are in Dakar to represent New Brunswick. At the Village de la Francophonie, they occupy a portion of the province's kiosk to talk Acadiepedia,

Acadiepedia is a vast project aimed at providing schools in the Francophone school district of Northwest New Brunswick with new technological tools enabling them to adjust to the uses of young digital natives and to innovate in their means of communication. The gate acadiepedia.com wants to allow these young people to take their place in French on the Web and to open up to other communities around the planet, in particular through the blog, the collaborative wiki and the youth radio.

“People come in and out of our kiosk, all interested in the Acadiepedia concept, our radio, our computers,” says Ms. Michaud. on his blog. If the Internet link allows it (which has not been the case until now), they will try to broadcast a radio program from Dakar, in the company of young people from a school in the city. One thing is certain, if the direct is not possible, they promise to record capsules to diffuse on their return.

In the meantime, we can follow them on Facebook as well as on top Ms. Michaud's blog.
