Your management, knowing your resourcefulness and your interest in the matter, entrusts you with the “digital file” of the school. Good news? It depends!
The portrait ofa teacher in charge of the digital file of his school, depicted in 2014 in the CEFRIO study report on digital uses in Quebec schools, shows that his skills and proactive side prompted his management to give him a lot of latitude. However, this great openness also seems to have its limits.
In charge of introductory computer courses and PPO (personal orientation project), this trendy teacher is constantly on the lookout for new ideas to integrate into his teaching approach. Open, he invites his students to use their personal devices in class. This practice develops their versatility in the use of a variety of technologies and avoids a divide between those who own or not such a device.
For him, it goes without saying: digital technology is a logistical facilitator, a support for learning and even a tool during evaluations. Serving to train citizens of the 21e century, it is also a concrete tool for research, creation and much more.
Absence of tags: be careful!
At the individual level, the absence of formal policies governing the integration of school technologies was not a problem for this teacher.
What we found is that the lack of guidelines has rather led to difficulties for the school team. Without a clear and shared vision with regard to digital technology, it is difficult to come together. The teachers then discuss their projects in the corridor. Without real references, budget management in connection with technologies also becomes laborious.
Suddenly, the openness of senior management certainly allows great progress in the classes, but it is still necessary to make sure to have a clear vision shared by the whole so that the success of the technological shift is at the rendezvous. you. In short, it is a demonstration of the importance of management and teachers working together to achieve lasting results.
