As part of the Digital Action Plan in Education and Higher Education, several schools have acquired iPad tablets. In order to promote the appropriation of the pedagogical potential of this tool by teachers, a collaborative project to design pedagogical capsules has been set up.
This dossier shares the experience of the massive implementation of the iPad in a secondary school. It highlights both the tools and the people who made it a positive experience. The avenues for reflection will adapt to all brands of tablets, and even to other types of mobile devices.
Since September 2014, Secondary 1 students at Le Sommet public school in Quebec City have all been using a tablet as a work tool. Researchers draw up a very positive assessment of the first year of the experiment, including a student satisfaction rate of 97 %.
