The third edition of the Digital Education Day (JNE) will take place on Friday, November 5. This virtual event, organized by the Quebec Ministry of Education, is now considered a must-see for all stakeholders in the school environment. It is possible to consult the program and to register now.
During the first edition, which took place in Quebec City in 2019, nearly 500 teachers and education professionals gathered. In 2020, pandemic obliges, the event took place online, which allowed more than 6,240 participants to attend. We can therefore speak of phenomenal growth, but above all of a democratization of the event. Thus, people from all over Quebec were able to take part in one or other of the activities.
For this third edition, the online formula is maintained. It is therefore possible to expect another (virtual) crowd success.
Registrations have been open for a few days. Do you want to participate? You must first register for the entire day. Subsequently, as some workshops are open to a limited number of participants, you will need to register for each one you want to attend.
The day will run from 9 a.m. to 4:25 p.m. After a word from the Minister of Education and an opening conference, four blocks of workshops will be offered to participants. With 8 different workshops per block, there will be something for everyone.
