This support for continuing training is in addition to free access to training since 2018 for teachers in Quebec as part of the Digital Education Action Plan of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
The CADRE21 training courses promote the active engagement of teachers in their continuing online training, thus enabling them to strengthen their skills towards a judicious integration of digital technology in their teaching. These online training courses cover a variety of topics related to digital skills (from programming to video creation and multimedia content) and are carried out in the teacher's teaching environment.
They are supported by a rigorous assessment, with a system of recognition of skills by digital badges and supported by supportive and individualized feedback from recognized experts.
The CADRE21 (Center for Animation, Development and Educational Research for the 21st Century) is based in Montreal. Its mission is to support the recognition and enhancement of the professional development of French-speaking school personnel, where it is found. The CADRE21 continuing education platform provides personalized learning opportunities and enables effective recognition of skills through recognized digital badges.
