NETendances - Young Quebecers spend as much time on the Internet as at the height of the pandemic

The relaxation of health measures and the return to a more normal life have not led young Quebecers to reduce the amount of time they spend in front of their screens, according to the most recent NETendances survey. The survey, entitled The digital family reports that 42 % of Quebec youth aged 6 to 17 spent an average of more than 10 hours per week surfing the Internet in 2022, a result similar to those obtained in 2021 (42 %) and 2020 (40 %).

Regarding the place that digital technology should occupy in the school learning of their children aged 6 to 17, it turns out that parents are quite divided on this subject. In fact, in 2022, 48 % of parent respondents believe that digital technology should play a greater role in their children's learning at school (49 % in 2021), while 44 % (41 % in 2021) are of the opposite opinion. These data are fairly comparable to those observed in the past.

Honda Canada Foundation Announces Partnership with FIRST Robotics Canada

The Honda Canada Foundation (HCF) announces a contribution of 375,000 $ over three years to FIRST Robotics Canada. FHC's sponsorship of this program will support the FIRST Robotics Competitions at the provincial and championship level. Thirty high school teams will each receive 2,000 $ to build impressive robots for the competition. 

The FIRST Robotics Competition is an annual competition in which teams of high school students, under strict rules and with limited resources and time, use sophisticated technology to build and program industrial-sized robots to compete in a game that combines action and strategic alliances on a themed field. With the help of professional mentors and sponsors, students learn engineering and problem-solving skills that they can apply to real-world situations now and in the future. Each team, while raising funds to achieve their goals, designs a team "brand" and advances respect and appreciation for STEM in the local community.

For the 2022-2023 season, the theme of energy challenges FIRST teams to reinvent the future of sustainable energy and advance their ideas. To learn more, visit the website firstroboticscanada.org (site in English only).

Launch of the White Paper on the gendered digital divide

Our Digital spring announces the release of its White Paper on the gendered digital divide, a study conducted by sociologist Amina Yagoubi and based on collaborative research.

"What came out of the first phase of research is that there is a gendered digital divide. We discovered that a lot of women are not interested, or not very interested, in technologies and that there are really some biases and failings in this digital world," explains Amina Yagoubia researcher and sociologist, at the launch of the White Paper on February 23, 2023.
