With the aim of promoting the integration of the twelve dimensions of digital competence in educational activities, the team of the School in a Network (ÉER), in collaboration with the Office for the implementation of the Digital Action Plan (BMOPAN) , develops digital paths.

" These routes are an opportunity to operationalize the development of each dimension by the students. It is a question of structuring the activities in this sense and of explicitly naming the presence of each of them ”, indicates Sophie Nadeau-Tremblay, coordinator of the team of resource teachers at the ERA.

The first two routes available were presented during the ERA Transfer Session, which was held on September 23. They are based on sequences of activities already experienced within the ERA. Robots and tales is a programming activity, while The mysteries of the buds deals more with science and mathematics. For each course, main and secondary dimensions are identified. They are intended for all primary school students.

The teaching activity planning template integrating digital competence proposed by the Ministry of Education was used to structure the activities. This one is from elsewhere available online for everyone.

Both courses will be officially offered to networked schools during the school year. They were also designed specifically to be experienced in this way. Other routes will also be offered later in the fall and winter.

Know and develop digital skills

In addition, Manon Légaré and Patrick Hould, from BMOPAN, took advantage of their presence at the unveiling of the two digital routes to re-present the objectives of the Digital education action plan, launched in 2018. They recalled that it aims to:

1. Support the development of digital skills for young people and adults;

2. Use digital technology as a vector of added value in teaching and learning practices;

3. Create an environment conducive to the deployment of digital technology throughout the education system.

The digital competence framework, which was published a few months after the launch of the digital action plan, aims to define the different dimensions. It offers a global portrait of the digital skills to be acquired.

For its part, the professional skills framework for the teaching profession was updated in 2020 and now includes a transversal skill: mobilizing digital technology.

Mr. Hould recalled that several organizations offer support and training to teachers who wish to better appropriate digital skills, such as the STORY and his Self-study campus, CADRE21 and the École branchée.

They also gave participants a host of useful links to better take ownership of the NAP. For the benefit of all, we reproduce them here:
