The " Education Infobourg »Was the precursor of this whole adventure. This website was created in April 1996, at the initiative of Clément Laberge (then a high school teacher) and André Girard (then a professor at Cégep de Sainte-Foy). At the time of its creation, the Infobourg's mission was already to promote "the educational resources of the Quebec infobourg". See here a memory of July 10, 1997! At theAQUOPS, in April 1996, the Infobourg map presented 140 Quebec websites related to the world of education. After the creation of the September media company, a book, the InfoductIn 1997, this poster was complemented by the establishment of quality criteria for an educational Web site.
Shortly thereafter, in April 1998, the publication of the magazine Chronicles of the Infobourg, become the École branchée in April 2000.
Between 2000 and 2012, Infobourg is edited by Brand, a company specializing in the distribution of educational resources and digital books. Its editorial direction has been entrusted to Audrey Miller from 2002 to 2004, to Martine Rioux from 2004 to 2010, then to Catherine Houle in 2011. A little later in the year, it's Nathalie Cote who succeeded him, with the occasional participation of Julie beaupre until the end of the 2012 school year.
During the 2012 summer vacation, another page of history was turned. Indeed, De Marque has sold the brands École branchée, Infobourg, SCOOP! and Picto at the non-profit organization École branchée and EngagED Learning, newly led on a mainly volunteer basis by Audrey Miller (who finally became the first full-time employee on July 2, 2018!). In March 2015, the site Infobourg.com officially gave way to Ecolebranchee.com, at the same time harmonizing the activities of the print magazine and the online magazine.
It was in 2017, following a meeting between École branchée and passionate teachers from Mont-Saint-Sacrement high school (Maxime Pelchat, Pierre-Olivier Cloutier and Sarah Shallow-Tardif), that training continued CréaCamp was born. The first edition took place on May 18, 2017. In 2017-2018, no less than five other editions took place. In 2018-2019, we went to 10 annual editions! It is also in 2017, during the REFER, that were shot the first Educational meetings, a series of meetings with inspiring players in the world of education.
On November 29, 2018, the department École branchée on the family is launched. It aims to support parents in the digital world and facilitate communication between them and teachers around the success and development of young people.
In August 2021, the first issue of the English edition of École branchée magazine was published. Engaged Learning offers translated and adapted content as well as content prepared exclusively for the English-speaking educational community.
Our team also has plenty of other ideas for the future!
