Type of Material:
Malian extract from a larger website on the countries celebrating 50 years of independence in Africa. Materials appropriate for area studies as well as language and culture.
This website is effective for teaching the rich diversity of the various African nations. Students can use the videos, interviews, music and text to enrich their awareness of La Francophonie.
No special requirements
Identify Major Learning Goals:
The website features information about the people and lifestyle of all the French-speaking countries in Africa since their independence from France.
Target Student Population:
Perfect for students at all levels of instruction. French instructors will appreciate the material particularly when they present African authors and artists to their students.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
French proficiency is very useful when working on the site, however it can be profitably used at every level of French.
The site is very rich in sight and sound. The audio-visual experience is extraordinarily impressive. It is so important to show students the great diversity of the continent and to highlight each country's unique contributions in art, music, folklife and culture.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
It is one thing to teach about la Francophonie from a textbook and another thing to allow students to see the sights and hear the sounds of each country on its own vibrant website. Each country has an authentic tour guide who visits merchants, grocers, musicians, artists, athletes, workers and other people going about their typical day's activities. The presentation of this site is inviting enough to keep students attention and to inspire all kinds of questions.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The site is very easy to navigate. It has audio-visual features that can be used in a variety of educational settings, by the teacher, the student and even a prospective tourist going to any of the Francophone African countries. Its authenticity is one of its best features for use in the classroom. The power of video to inform is particularly effective for young learners.
