As indicated on his website, "The event is intended to be a unique opportunity to bring together programmers, school staff and creative people in order to find innovative solutions aimed at improving daily life in Quebec schools".
For this first edition, which takes place from May 24, 2019, 5:30 p.m., to May 26, 2019, 4 p.m., the theme proposes to address an important question for all schools:
"How to strengthen communication and collaboration between students, parents and school stakeholders using digital tools and resources?" "
“It is well known that the involvement of parents in the education of their children is essential and contributes greatly to academic success. Moreover, one of the objectives set by the Policy on Educational Success (Gouvernement du Québec, 2017) is to “promote parental commitment and support the relationship that unites families and educational communities”. To do this, it is important to increase communication and collaboration between students, parents and school stakeholders.
The challenge for the participants will therefore be to develop a prototype or a proof of concept which will:
- Simplify communication and follow-ups between the school and parents and students
- Encourage parents and teachers to engage in better collaboration
- Empower the student in his educational journey.
Will you be able to respond to this issue of the education sector?
The event is mainly aimed at: to school developers, to IT staff in educational organizations, to all stakeholders and staff in elementary and secondary schools in Quebec, to all college and university students in computer science or teaching.
