By 2016, the majority of classrooms in Quebec will be equipped with an interactive whiteboard (IWB) thanks to the government's “School 2.0: the connected classroom” measure. The challenge of appropriating the tool and its pedagogical integration is very real. In this perspective, a new collection of books could provide good support for teachers.
Information and communication technologies, commonly known as ICT, are increasingly present in the classroom. They will be even more so with the proliferation of interactive whiteboards in schools. Chenelière Éducation has therefore just launched two volumes intended for teachers who are connected… or in the process of being!
If paper textbooks rhyme with green board, digital textbooks are beginning to rhyme with interactive whiteboard. In classrooms as in publishing houses, there is a lot of discussion about this transformation of teaching material. Is this the start of a new era?
