Progress report on Convoi 77 resources and new tools developed
The association continues to develop !
This is now the fifth school year that we have started in partnership with classes across France and in many other countries! The association is now benefiting from a large ripple effect. The number of classes has almost tripled, from 56 for the 2017/2018 school year to 144 classes for this 2021/2022 school year. International partnerships have also greatly expanded. Indeed, to the classes of the six initial countries participating with France (Germany, Austria, Denmark, Egypt, Poland and Tunisia) have been added classes from many other countries such as Algeria, Greece, Hungary, Portugal or Ukraine. Of the 1306 deportees, 272 biographies have already been written and 285 others are in progress. The road is still long but the association can count on you and your classes to continue this great adventure together!
Launch of eTwinning
This year, the association is participating in an educational project of European scope: eTwinning.
What is it about?
It is an initiative of the European Commission encouraging collaboration between European schools through the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) by providing support, tools and services to participating schools.
This initiative fits perfectly into the educational and international dimension of the association. Through eTwinning, we have the opportunity to set up partnerships between French classes and other European classes. This bi-national dimension gives us the opportunity to write about the journey of a deportee, starting from his journey in his country of origin to his life in France.
For more details on the implementation of the project, you will have to wait until the next newsletter…
The new geolocation tool : a must for teachers !
Discover the new digital geolocation tool available since the beginning of 2021 and developed by Convoi 77 to easily find the 1306 deportees of this convoy on an interactive map! You will be able to see on this map not only where they came from by place of birth or last place of residence, but also their place of arrest on the individual cards as well as their biography if it has already been written. Thus, with the help of this tool, teachers can find the deportees located near their school by searching, for example, by department or by town. It is a very useful tool both to take stock of the work done, but also to help in the way to go on!
