Sara Hurley and Kali-Anne Monneret are two teachers from Quebec who are currently working at Lycée Antoine-de-Saint-Exupéry in Santiago, Chile. They are passionate about educational innovation and have undertaken various educational projects aimed at improving education in their primary school. They tell us about it here!

What is DivertiProf?

“The main project that we have implemented is DivertiProf. This collection of educational video capsules was born out of a pandemic with the objective of ensuring quality distance education in order to adapt to the new reality. The great interest of children and teachers in educational capsules motivated us to move forward with this project. They produced capsules that became more and more motivating, aesthetically more elaborate and pedagogically richer over time. In addition, they called on Quebec artists to produce more professional clips.

“We have made it our mission to offer quality educational capsules so that students can learn while having fun even from a distance. We promote concrete, fun learning and a healthy and active lifestyle. In addition, we believe that sharing our digital resources with other teachers is essential. We all benefit, students and teachers, from teamwork resulting from the union of each other's strengths. "

Other projects

The two teachers believe that the best way to learn a new language is to use it in different contexts. This is why they also organize bilingual (French / Spanish) outings to the mountains. “We organize hikes in the Andes Mountains while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. We allow children to do concrete learning in nature while discovering the ecosystem of Chile. "

Finally, they also offer private lessons online and at home, in addition to having created the Tribal Kit. “This is a kit that contains clay and various items from nature that children can use to make constructions. The objective is to allow children living in cities to have access to nature and to give free rein to their creativity while developing their fine motor skills. "

DivertiProfs are now on Youtube and Instagram.
