We need you!

The École branchée team is (already!) Preparing the fall 2021 issue of its magazine. This will focus on professional development in connection with education in the digital age. We would like to hear from you on this subject.

In closing, to make you smile ...

A pearl found by a friend in the digital archives of the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec. In the December 3, 1971 edition of the daily Le Soleil, we could read this article. We were not far from talking about Zoom and Google Drive!

See you soon! Until then, don't hesitate to “tag” us (in good French…) on Twitter (@millaudrey or @riomarti) so that we can talk about your project / resource in a future review of the week! Have a great weekend!
