“L’univers poètic de Miquel Martí i Pol” is a project by La Fundació Miquel Martí i Pol, Roda de Ter’s Town Council, Associació d’Amics de Miquel Martí i Pol, and the Department of Cultural Affairs of the Generalitat (Government of Catalonia) –an application for mobile tablets and interactive whiteboards which aims to bring children closer to poetry through Miquel Martí i Pol’s work. The app has been designed to bring children closer to literature with the use of appealing and dynamic illustrations and games that stimulate poetic experimentation, creativity and reading.
This app aims to bring the author’s poetry closer to children with about forty poems, amongst them some that the author wrote especially for children, such as "Bon profit" or "Per molts anys". The poetic texts are linked to various illustrated elements which form part of a frieze that represents Miquel Martí i Pol’s immediate scenery and environment. In this illustrated space some of the more characteristic elements of the town Roda de Ter can be recognised, such as the bridge, the river, the church, the factory, the school, and even the author’s birthplace. On this journey, children will also find interactive games which will allow them to experiment with the poet’s verses. Not only will they be able to listen to the poems, but also to write new ones with the possibility of reciting them and recording them.
The totally free app is compatible with iOS and Android.App
