Digital Education Day
Since 2019, the Ministère has been committed to organizing an annual Digital Education Day. The objective of this day is to increase the training resources available to school staff working in public and private schools as well as Indigenous education organizations.
Digital Education Day is the perfect opportunity to get inspired, innovate and collaborate on the theme of digital technology in pedagogical approaches.
Due to the circumstances caused by the pandemic, the 2020 edition took place online. This second edition covered interaction, feedback and the relationship with the remote learner, along with other topics that made it possible for more than 6 240 participants to learn about the pedagogical use of digital technology and to share innovative professional practices.

Room 3 — Are Your Documents Accessible to All Your Students?
by Marie-Josée Marineau-Harnois and Martin Gagnon
The main goal of this workshop is to make participants aware of students’ accessibility needs. Ensuring that all documents destined for students are accessible is the first step in providing inclusive instruction, an approach that enables educators to respond to the diversity of the learners and their learning needs.
Room 4 — The Inspiring World of Languages!
by Sonia Blouin, Annie Cormier, Sandra Laine, Nadia Laurendeau, Julie Noël, Johanne Proulx and Martin Tremblay
In this workshop, participants are invited to work at virtual stations in rotation, in French or English. Each station sets participants a short, hands-on challenge to help them become familiar with a techno-pedagogical activity while getting support from a member of the languages team making the presentation.
As part of the first edition of Digital Education Day, nearly 500 teachers and education professionals came together and discussed the various ways digital technology can add value to teaching and learning experience so as to foster student success.
