My Warsaw – Warsaw is mine

June 1st marks the premier of the first bilingual Smartphone application throughout Poland. The application, designed by the Museum of the History of Polish Jews and the History Meeting House, combines features of a guide, an orientation-based game and an encyclopedia about Janusz Korczak’s biography.

The application spans two tourist routes. The first one guides you through places related to Janusz Korczak’s early and late childhood while the other shows Korczak’s life story during World War II. Both routes comprise almost fifty described places. The “My Warsaw-Warszawa jest moja” project shows now nonexistent Warsaw through pictures, audio recordings, a quiz, quotations and the augmented reality system. It sets an example of a novel approach of learning by having fun by means of state-of-the-art technologies. You can download this bilingual Polish-English application on GooglePlay and AppStore for free.

The application is designed to be a modern tool for learning and teaching history. The only thing you have to do is take your Smartphone with you and take a walk with your family around Warsaw or organize a memorable outdoor history lesson. Tourists may use it as a city guide while Warsaw residents may discover their home town anew.
