QUEBEC, Nov. 13, 2020 / CNW Telbec / - As part of Digital Education Day, which took place on Friday, November 13, more than 6,240 teaching and professional staff from public education networks and private sector as well as indigenous education organizations were able to become more familiar with digital technology for educational purposes. For the occasion, the Minister of Education, Mr. Jean-François Roberge, and the Minister Delegate for Governmental Digital Transformation, Mr. Éric Caire, were virtually present.
The event, which took place entirely online, was a great success with industry players, in particular because of the rich programming that met the current needs of the networks. The Covid-19 has forced us, over the past year, to review our ways of doing things. In this context, the organization of this event is timely to assist school personnel who wish to learn more about technopedagogy. The training sessions and conferences offered during this day revolved around three main themes, namely:
- the emotional bond and the long-distance relationship with the student;
- interactivity and feedback in a distance education context;
- teaching with digital in the classroom or at a distance.
In addition to the twenty training workshops, participants were able to attend a conference of Mme Cathia Papi, professor in the Education Department of TÉLUQ University and responsible for training I teach remotely. A round table with the main partners of the Digital Action Plan in education and higher education, namely CADRE21, École Branchée and the Récit, also allowed participants to learn more about the emotional bond at a distance.
Minister Roberge also took advantage of the event to launch the diagnostic tool for digital competence. This tool will make it possible to measure digital competence with regard to the 12 dimensions presented in the Reference framework for digital competence, both for teachers and students, all with the aim of promoting the development of this key competence in the whole educational community.
“I am delighted with the success of this second edition of Digital Education Day and I am extremely proud to see the willingness to innovate of all the school teams, who accepted the invitation without hesitation. They have thus demonstrated the importance they attach to continuing education, an investment that will inevitably be reflected in the educational success of their students. Technopedagogy is now omnipresent in the daily life of the school network and it is essential to offer all the tools necessary to ensure the educational success of our young people. I would also like to underline the quality of the trainers and speakers who made this event a resounding success with more than 6,240 registrations! "Jean-François Roberge, Minister of Education
“The education of our young people should be our pride. The education of our society is essential. The digital transformation is taking place in Quebec and this second edition of the Digital Education Day is proof of that. I am proud of the commitment of professionals in the education network who want to enrich their knowledge of the digital world in order to reach our young people. I am always honored to talk to Quebecers about what digital transformation can bring them in their daily lives. "Éric Caire, Minister Delegate for Government Digital Transformation
