Everyday education isn’t so everyday anymore. It now includes a number of new scenarios, such as online schooling, hybrid education, classes temporarily closed, and teachers and students isolating themselves at home. And while the school environment is constantly adapting, families must also adjust to the reality of the past few months. To help parents better support their children with online learning, L’École branchée is launching a practical guide today, created especially for them. Distance education continues this year for a large number of young people..
“Distance education becomes a source of stress, but represents an opportunity to get back to basics in child-teacher, parent-child, and parent-teacher relationships. One thing is certain, we must first accept the new reality, let go of things beyond our control and pay particular attention to the well-being of each one (and his own first) to then better master the workings of teaching. remotely,” said Martine Rioux, Managing Editor of this special issue of the magazine.
Note that this special issue of École branchée is produced in collaboration with the Fédération des comités de parents du Québec (FCPQ) and the English Parents’ Committee Association of Quebec (EPCAQ). It is part of the shared desire of these partners to offer a series of support tools for parents.
« I’m pleased to have the opportunity to work with the English Parents’ Committee Association of Quebec and L’École Branchée, partners and trusted organizations, to provide resources to parents so that they feel more prepared when supporting their young people for their well-being and success. In the face of the unknown, let’s get better equipped and be united!”, said Kévin Roy, President of the FCPQ.
« With this publication, we continue our collaborative efforts with other parenting communities, realizing unprecedented economies of scale in sharing information, resources and support, » said Katherine Korakakis, President of the ACPA.
Finally, with this launch, L’École branchée wants to support Réseau québécois pour la réussite éducative’s objective during the Journées de la persévérance scolaire, which is to create a moment that is kind and caring for young people. We want to send positive and enlightening messages to families across Quebec.
This special issue of the magazine can be downloaded free of charge, in both English and French, on the ecolebranchee.com/family website, thanks to financial support from the Quebec Ministry of Education (MEQ).
