As part of the “Lieux vivants” project (Living places), a mobile app was developed to tell visitors the stories of the Fine Arts Museum and Charmettes Museums at Chambéry (France) and Egyptian Museum in Turin (Italy). Visitors, students and schools can use this mobile app in order to listen to the different stories of key characters of these museums, while visiting them. Stories have been developed and recorded in order to create a livelier experience for visitors, through, for instance, the dramatization of the text, as well as the use of special voices and sounds effects.
The Ecomobility Agency launched a project to encourage students to make walking and cycling part of their daily routine. To this end, students can for instance take part to Pedibus or Vélobus’ events (respectively joint actions to move by foot or bike with other people), as well as school competitions to increase the number of school pupils who come to school by bike for a specific period of time.
Open workshops and activities to make digital education accessible for students and the larger public were organised in Chambéry. Among these activities, there were: public session to learn how to use the Internet and access digital services, workshops on how to think critically when using the web, open day to bring families together around topics such as augmented reality and social media.
In order to reception conditions of students in the region, the regional authorities accepted to finance a new boarding school in Chambéry. This school will replace the Vaugelas High School affected by several deficiencies such as the lack of waterproofing of the roofs and insufficient capacity of the dining room. The new boarding school will be able to accommodate more students (up to 200 students), offer a new catering area with over 900 meals a day and it will meet the high energy performance standards.
