On March 30, the Quebec Association of Elementary Teachers (AQEP) organized its conference on the pedagogical integration of technologies at the elementary level. For the occasion, more than 50 participants gathered at Collège Charles-Lemoyne in Longueuil to take part in several workshops, all of which have the primary objective of promoting learning by taking advantage of digital technology.

The pedagogical integration of technologies in elementary school

As a partner and also as a participant, the École branchée took part in this most recent conference of the AQEP. 14 workshops were therefore offered to teachers wishing to invest in their professional development process and increase their pedagogical leadership. With this in mind, many digital tools promoting learning have been put forward: from the constellation of the bear facilitating writing to DESMOS for the creation of mathematical activities, through virtual reality headsets for exploration in a social universe, the participants had access to a panoply of ideas, each more creative than the next, to put into practice on Monday morning with their students. You can have access to all the workshops by clicking here.

Alaska: augmented reality in the service of reading

The participants were treated to a nice surprise at dinner time: Alaska editions came to offer a youth album to everyone and took the opportunity to present the unique experience of augmented reality available in all his books. Indeed, it is by using this technology that Alaska allows readers, young and old, to dive into an interactive world that is as playful as it is educational. From Teacher kits are even available here to facilitate classroom animation. The application for mobile devices can be downloaded free of charge from theApp Store or on Google Play.
