Will the school of the future still have walls? Either way, today's school walls are less and less of a barrier to discovery, learning and collaboration. Not only does the Internet provide access to a phenomenal amount of information, but Web 2.0 also allows enriching exchanges.

Thus was born telecollaboration. Classes separated by an ocean can now work together on the same project and communicate almost as easily as if they were under one roof.

Moreover, in Quebec, several small village schools have grown virtually in recent years in order to stick together and offer better services to their students!

Elsewhere, several completely virtual schools are starting to emerge. Teachers and students no longer even share the same classroom, the material is completely digital and learning takes place at all hours of the day. It's the distance school version 2.0! In Quebec, however, nothing has yet been done in this direction.

All of these projects require the use (and mastery) of a number of tools, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
