Versailles !

By Francis Carlier

At SDFAS, in Elementary school, technology is not an added discipline. It reinforces and gives meaning to learning in a safe and child-friendly environment.

In History, 4th grade students work on Louis XIV and the Palace of Versailles. It’s one thing to describe or observe photos of the Hall of Mirrors, the most prestigious room in the castle, but it’s another to virtually immerse yourself in this room and move among the mirrors, gilded carvings and paintings in the vaulted ceiling. Thanks to the virtual reality headsets and Alice’s assistance (our STEAM director), the students became more aware of the dimensions and prestige of this space, of the vocabulary and of its visual details.

An experience greatly appreciated and which they ask to renew.
