EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Beginning in February 2019, a new, redesigned youth circuit and a new educational activity led by a Canadian guide with the “Explore Juno as a Class” digital app on tactile tablets (two versions for primary and secondary school groups).

In the permanent exhibit, new, interactive modules and the “Explore Juno as a Class” digital app will enable primary and secondary school groups and their teachers to discover the museum with a Canadian guide. The class is divided into 6 teams of 5 students, each team with their own tablet. Across the different exhibit rooms, students are invited to learn about the role that may have been theirs during the Second World War, and to reflect on universal historical concepts tied to themes of immigration, total war or political dictators. At the end of the exhibit, with their guide/mediator, students will tally the “poppy points” earned throughout the activity on a common screen and share what they have learned with the other teams, before
concluding with a discussion about current topics related to Canada and the world today.
“This is my first time here. I often don’t like museums that deal with war but for once, I loved it!” Titi, age 14. Excerpt from the JBC’s Visitor Book, November 2017
