On November 6, French President François Hollande presented in a speech the great e-education plan, which will involve the equipment of all 5e in tablets, from the start of the 2016 school year.

Our colleagues from Ludomag make a portrait of the implications of this ambitious plan, which is reminiscent of the interactive whiteboards here, of which here is a summary.

This great plan must start with " college and school experiences "; the first major brick will be to learn coding extracurricular from the start of the 2015-2016 school year.

The second brick is materialized by equipping all 5-year-old schoolchildrene (equivalent to 1time secondary) for the 2016-2017 school year. The justification for the choice of this level can be made by the fact that, since the orientation law (which will be effective at the start of the 2016 school year), the class of 5e is the first of a new cycle, the 6e (6e year of elementary school in Quebec) being integrated into a common cycle with CM2 (5e elementary school year in Quebec). For this second brick, he plans a few colleges " testers »From the start of the 2015 school year.

He ensures that the implementation of these first two " bricks »Will be carried out in consultation, from January 2015, with teachers, parents of students, school publishers, manufacturers and local elected officials; a consultation which should last about a month " or even two, if necessary », He emphasizes.

On the budget side, he says he has the necessary money: " This plan is part of the National Education budget, a budget that has been preserved », He recalls; but to the question of the amount, it does not answer frankly and also evokes the funds of investments of the future.

In addition, it would seem that the State would put all the means to ensure:
- network and very high speed infrastructure so that all junior high school studentse can work online;
- the training of teachers, but this presupposes that they are " involved As described by the President;
- the involvement of school publishers so that the entire program in all disciplines is online on the shelves.
