The Printemps digital team organizes virtual digital cafes in several high schools in Quebec. A few time slots are still available for the month of March.

The team particularly wishes to join schools in the following regions in March, or in the coming months: Outaouais, Center-du-Québec, Gaspésie – Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Côte-Nord, Estrie, Bas-Saint- Laurent. Of course, schools from other regions are also welcome.

During a virtual café, students can discover digital tools and learn about trades as well as existing initiatives to increase their digital skills. The workshops take place through an immersive environment, in which the young participants can create an avatar and interact with teammates.

The activity lasts between 45 and 75 minutes. A guide and video tutorial are sent to the teacher so that the students can download the Virtual World application in class or at home before the activity. This must be done on a computer or laptop (no phone or tablet) and on a Windows or MacOS operating system. Students should also wear headphones for better sound quality.

Interested teachers can communicate directly with Leticia Lacroix of the Digital Spring team: leticia@printempsnumerique.ca
