Since the experiments of pioneer Laurence Juin, teachers from here and elsewhere have been following the Twitter wind. With a discreet glance through the branches to find out what the popular microblogging platform can offer them at the professional level, some have taken off and made it a real educational tool to develop writing skills.

And now, technologies are taking up more and more space. They are almost completely integrated into society and creep into school even when we try to prevent them, disrupting learning methods and students' expectations.

Before the holidays, Infobourg presented several articles following the congress of the Association québécoise des médecins du primary.
