Launch of a pedagogical portal about Samuel de Champlain

A pedagogical resource bank is available for schools, helping to build awareness concerning Champlain's legacy throughout early French Canadian history.

OTTAWA, Nov. 23, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The Assemblée de la francophonie de l'Ontario is proud to announce the launch of the next phase of its "Champlain 1615 and Canada" project: the online creation of the Champlain 1615 pedagogical portal.  The website will offer a rich pedagogical resource bank for students everywhere across Canada, aimed at teaching the role played by Champlain in the early history of Canada.

French and English sector schools, and teachers at the elementary and secondary levels will have access to this new tool that will enable them to find a vast amount of pertinent pedagogical information concerning Champlain: books, magazines, audio clips, short videos, information programs, and more.

The data bank, part of which is downloadable, is meant to be used as a key pedagogical tool used to support history, geography, and French courses as much as for any school that would like to organize activities related to this historical figure.

As part of the 400th anniversary of French presence in Ontario, we created the Champlain 1615 and Canada project to engage and heighten Canadian public awareness concerning the role played by Samuel de Champlain throughout Ontario in 1615 as well as the impact he had on the development of Francophone society in Canada.

The Assemblée de la francophonie de l'Ontario (L'Assemblée) is a bridge-building organization as well as the political voice of French Ontario.  Its mandate is to consult the Francophone community of the Province and act as its voice, amongst other services, asserting the rights of the more than 611,500 Franco-Ontarians.
