Simply find current, free content that is linked to the Quebec school curriculum and accessible in an ad-free environment... It sounds too good to be true? But that's what the Télé-Québec en classe platform offers Quebec teachers and students. 

Télé-Québec in the classroom is a service developed under a mandate from the Quebec Ministry of Education to provide teachers, educational consultants and other school professionals at all levels: preschool, elementary, secondary, adult education and vocational training with relevant educational resources related to the curriculum. To date, more than 15,000 items of content have been made available and this number continues to grow. 

Education specialists are on the lookout for news and participate in the design of certain content and pedagogical accompaniments that are posted on the platform. The majority of the content comes from the television programming of the public channel Télé-Québec, and is segmented and adapted for the classroom environment.  

Exclusive content also appears on the platform on a regular basis. For example, don't try to find the episodes of the famous youth series Cornemuse on the Web. They are not available anywhere except on Télé-Québec in class! The same is true for many experiments and demonstrations from the popular science series Génial! 

"One of the strengths of Télé-Québec en classe is that it presents program segments that have been specially selected to address themes in the school curriculum. Educational tracks and guides containing ready-to-use activities are also offered. Teachers can download them for use in the classroom. This greatly simplifies lesson preparation," explains Julie Provencher, who is responsible for pedagogical intervention. 

More than videos 

It's not just videos that are featured on Télé-Québec in the classroom. The variety of resources also includes podcasts, literature kits, thematic lists, printable materials, etc. For example, the podcast Summer Heartbeat has been specifically developed in collaboration with the national RÉCIT language department for secondary ESL. 

Among the most popular new products, the literature kits are the most popular with elementary school teachers. These kits are built around Quebec children's books that have been adapted to be presented on the interactive digital board. Complementary activities for teaching a reading strategy and a writing process are offered for each album. This demo presents how to use them. 

"These kits are a great way to integrate Quebec literature into the classroom. They are grouped according to various themes and new ones are added every month," says Ms. Provencher. 

Create an account 

To access all of Télé-Québec's educational resources in the classroom, all you have to do is create an account. The creation process is very simple and intuitive, "compared to other platforms," says Grégoire. Teachers and students are invited to create an account. 

Once you have created your account, you can use the search engine to easily find relevant content according to grade levels, subjects, curriculum concepts and keywords. In addition, it is possible to create a list of favorites, which allows you to save resources that can be easily retrieved at the appropriate times. This feature can be useful even for students who want to review content from home.
