Teachers are not all at the same level when it comes to their appropriation of different technological tools. Will they integrate digital tools with the same ease? Will they need different digital content?

Marie-Josée Lavoie is a first year teacher at the Seigneurie-des-Mille-Îles school board. Barely a month ago, she took the plunge: she manipulates the TBI and uses digital equipment. "As long as you have a TBI, you might as well use it as best as possible," she says.

Since the installation of his peripheral, the pupils handle the board every day. The project book is interesting and colorful, and she sees it as a great benefit for undergraduates. "Everything is so much better in terms of spotting," she adds. I can circle the number that students should pay attention to rather than walking through the 21 desks to make sure everyone is writing in the right place. At the start of schooling, it gives a good boost. "

Pierre Poulin is the founder of the famous iClasse in Montreal-North. At Wilfrid-Bastien school, this tech-savvy teacher created his ideal classroom almost entirely digital and without traditional physical organization. He says he uses very few printed textbooks except grammars. "In our school, their use is becoming more and more occasional or occurs when there is a power failure," he jokes. The main drawback of printed textbooks is the lack of interaction. They do not take into account the development of students' prior knowledge, especially for immigrants ”. Does he use digital textbooks, then? No more, for fear that these new manuals will only be an electronic version of the paper manuals.

This is what Carmen Roberge, a second cycle teacher at the Pointe-de-l'Île school board, experiences. “Even though it's much easier for the students to find their way around the textbook, there is very little interactivity in the one I use. For teachers who are taking their first steps at the TBI, it is fine. But when you become more experienced, it takes a lot more, ”laments the teacher who is in her third year of using the TBI.
