Today we are chatting with a teacher who has created his own iPad class! It was far from easy, but possible by going one step at a time.

Carl Parent is an educational advisor for the integration of ICT at the Commission scolaire des Navigateurs. Already, during his university years, he wanted his students to have a technological tool within their reach.

From "BYOD" to the iPad class

Once in class, he first invited his students to bring their own device, in a “BYOD” approach. Learning to manage 8 different types of devices in elementary school had its share of challenges, which led him to think of his class differently.

He suggested to his director to form an "iPad class" (we have already told you about his in this file). According to him, the greatest benefit of this class has been to create a world of possibilities in which the student is more active in demonstrating their learning and carrying out their projects.

He does not hide the fact that the integration of technology involves experiencing failures. He suggests moving forward at his own pace and learning from mistakes. And always have a plan B on hand!
