The new educational project of the Sagrada Familia uses new technologies, games and puzzles, to capture student interest.
The new range of educational visits of the Sagrada Familia aims to guide students toward a discovery of the temple from their own lived experience. With this new style of visits to guide students opt instead to explain retail Basilica. In addition, we have incorporated digital tablets as educational tools with which students complete games and consult teaching units in the same visit.
According to the coordinator of the educational project of the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Maite Martínez, “these visits give hints and clues for students to discover the key to understanding both exceptional elements of the architecture of Gaudi. If you discover that the relationship with the building will be absolutely unconditional.
Thus, through appropriate teaching materials for each level (for secondary tablet, tool belt and story for Primary and large format book for children) the student learns and solves the riddles posed concepts related to the work of the Catalan architect. For example, before the Passion facade, must find the different elements Subirachs sculpted in tribute to Gaudi. Inside the basilica, a game teaches geometry layout and shape of the columns. And to understand the light within, the tablet virtually reproduces the shape of the hyperboloid that the architect wanted to use to illuminate the basilica.
