Coeducation in the digital age: Accompanying young people towards an ethical use of screens

During this training, the participants will be in the exchange and the action in order to develop their relationship of coeducation in the digital era. They will be equipped to propose to parents the use of a parent-child contract. In this way, the actions implemented at school will be supported by those of the parents at home. The parent-child contract promotes the establishment of positive rules of life in the digital age and acts on the autonomy of young people towards healthy lifestyle habits.

Do you speak "digital"?

Over the last few decades, we have moved from ICT, information and communication technologies, to digital and its thousand and one possibilities. With its rules, codes and standards, "digital" is more complex to master. It represents a real language that everyone must now learn to master. Despite the passing years, inequalities and myths persist. Discover surprising statistics and see why it is necessary to take the next step.

Create with video

Video is a powerful storytelling medium, and technology has advanced to a point where we can use our phones to produce high-quality videos and edit them using an iPad or laptop. Take control of your silver screen by delving into the video features and learning about the tools we can use to help tell your story.

Creating stories with Coding

Visual-based coding is a great way to introduce our students to the world of programming. Storytelling using this tool is an effective way to introduce coding and learn problem-solving skills. Scratch is a visual programming language platform allowing us to compose our own story using visuals, motion, text, and audio. Learn how you can integrate coding with language, math, and art to engage and empower students.

Animations using Keynote

We may take a lot of time trying to find the right resource to use in our classroom to teach a concept, and still might not find exactly what we want. Fortunately, we have tools enabling us to create dynamic digital assets and use them in our slides and videos. Co-creating resources with our students during a lesson can help our students visualize abstract concepts and provide them with meaningful learning content that they can build on while teaching them how to create their own dynamic content. Keynote (iPad or Mac) can be used to create animated GIFs, animations and video content to engage and enhance communication and the learning experience.

Evaluating differently: how to support your school team

Evaluation is a hot topic these days! Come and hear about the successes and challenges of Sylvie Boutin, former principal of l'Accueil de Scott, a flagship school of the CAR project, whose team changed the way she sees and applies evaluation in her environment. What to put in place? How to support teachers in their situation? How do you prepare parents for such a change? And as a manager, what posture should I adopt? This is an appointment to discuss with a passionate person who, through her experience, will be able to help you initiate the change too!

Supporting all students with Apple's accessibility tools

Supporting all of our students in their learning is both challenging and rewarding. We can utilize technology to help our students communicate their ideas in a manner that is efficient, effective and authentic. Apple designs its products with accessibility in mind. Learn how we can leverage the built-in accessibility tools and native Apple apps to help our students learn and share their ideas.
