Word when launching

These are the words of our Executive Director, Ms. Audrey Miller, at the official launch on March 27, 2019, at the Institute for Learning Disabilities conference.

Good morning all,

I take a few moments to express my great pride in welcoming you this evening to the launch of a very special issue of École branchée magazine.

But L'École branchée is more than a magazine. It is a small organization with a very big heart which, for 23 years now, has been supporting teachers and the various players in the school environment in the appropriation and development of digital uses. I invite you to visit our website ecolebranchee.com to find out what we do for you.

Every day, our team develops and maintains a large network of partners and collaborators that brings together expertise to promote educational success.

The Institute for Learning Disabilities is one of those valued partners with whom we have moved forward this year. We have joined forces to create this resource that every person tonight will be privileged to receive. I would like to warmly thank Guy Aublet and Alain Desrochers, from the TA Institute, it is an honor and a pleasure to work with you. I also underline the exceptional contribution of the authors, you will be able to exchange with several of them this evening.

The challenges of the pedagogical integration of digital have much in common with those of the need to find ways to alleviate learning disabilities. For example, we are all working to ensure that the school can provide young people with the best possible tools so that they become lifelong learners. On the one hand, we work to train future responsible and competent citizens in an increasingly digital society; on the other, we are developing innovative ways to offer them a chance to evolve freely, despite a learning disability. In addition, when you combine digital and assistive tools, you open the way to a world of possibilities.

At École branchée, in every issue of the magazine we publish and in every training day we organize, the contribution of partners is essential. It is thanks to their support that we are able to make a real difference in the classroom. This is particularly important for us in the case of this special issue, which was produced at the same time as our regular edition. Our team, which is here in full tonight, has worked hard in recent weeks: I sincerely thank you! I especially tip my hat to my colleague Stéphanie Dionne, who led this project with passion and dedication, always with the aim of making each of the employees and partners shine, as only she knows how to do so well. Moreover, without our precious financial partners, we would not be gathered here this evening to celebrate. Once again, we would like to sincerely thank them for their support! The Educational Shop, Computer Druid, Lexibar, Médialexie, Brault and Bouthillier and the Vanguard School. Really, we can say that TOGETHER, we make a difference!
