The 3e he second episode of the Digital Intention podcast focuses on the deployment of digital technology in a school to enable the development of digital literacy in students. In this article, we present the top 10 winning practices, presented at the end of the discussion by Sylvain Duclos.

At the beginning of the episode, contributors Myra Auvergnat-Ringuette, Mathieu Mercier and Marie-Hélène Demers presented how the schools in which they work have developed guides and a plan to structure the development of digital literacy in their students.

At the end of the discussion, Sylvain Duclos presents his top 10 practices to facilitate deployment in a school. Here it is in a nutshell:

  1. Inform teachers about the Reference framework for digital competence from the Quebec Ministry of Education:
    1. Give examples of activities (connected or not);
    2. Use the Digital Plan podcastwhich presents all the dimensions of digital competence in each of its episodes.
  2. Take inventory of what is already being done in your environment, draw inspiration from it and seek to disseminate it more widely (ndlr: why not by proposing a testimony to École branchée!).
  3. Suggest ways to improve what already exists outside of digital technology (e.g. a comic book project that could become digital).
  4. Leveraging the expertise of pedagogical leaders, building on their strengths (e.g., ethics debate, digital creation) to guide others.
  5. Determine a realistic exit profile for students in your school based on the Continuum of development of digital competence from the Quebec Ministry of Education
  6. Establish skills for each level with the goal of progression, ideally linear.
  7. Do not limit yourself to specific tools :
    1. For example, we don't do Word, we discover a word processor.
    2. Propose fun activities to discover functionalities: discover menus, share a file, collaborate, etc.
  8. Target more technical tasks to work on over time with students (e.g. blitz to learn how to send an email, add an attachment).
  9. Do not get attached to the plan. It is bound to change as digital technology is constantly evolving and students change every year. It should be seen as a working document that will adapt over time.
  10. Support and provide opportunities for teachers to deepen their thinking, validate their practices, and generate new ideas (last but not least!)
