The pupils of Marie Champagne, in 2e secondary school at Saint-Georges high school, in Beauce, were animated this year by the fever of Twitterature. Indeed, they paired it with the discovery of the history of their city for an exciting ICT project.

 

The project “I tweet my city! », As we can read in the press release issued on the subject by the Beauce-Etchemin School Board, resulted from twitterature exercises that the teacher already regularly offered to her students.

 

These exercises require you to compose messages of 140 characters on a given topic, according to the characteristics of the social network Twitter. According to Marie Champagne, in addition to being fun, "it is really an effective pedagogical approach which requires vocabulary, grammar, a spirit of synthesis and which even touches poetry in certain cases".

 

Thus, his students were able to familiarize themselves with the history of their city, in this case Saint-Georges, while integrating notions of French and taking advantage of ICT. For the final presentation of their work, the students learned to use the site Glogster, an online application halfway between the blog and the poster. They published there accounts of illustrated historical events, in addition to their "tweet".
