Today Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95. Nothing else is talked about, and the time has come to learn about resources that help us understand why this man was so important in the history of humanity.
In addition to special reports in specialized media around the world, and his extensive Wikipedia page, we have activities and resources that we can present to students to help them get to know Nelson Mandela better.
On the BBC there is a page with photos, videos, texts and activities, for example, but nothing compared to what they have prepared on mandela27.eu.
It is a project that was born as a result of the collaboration between the European Union and South Africa inspired by the history of Nelson Mandela and the Robben Island Museum. The project aims to show information of all kinds, from interactive maps to games that show his life in prison, as well as panoramic visits of the key places in the life of this great protagonist of our history.
The project is still in development, but you can sign up for its newsletter, or follow its profiles on social networks, to be aware of its progress and to participate in this initiative that aims to use the resources of the interaction of technology applied to games to learn more about 20th century history.
