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.

2021 Edition

The Ministère de l’Éducation will hold the third edition of Digital Education Day on Friday, November 5, 2021. This event, which is free of charge, will take place online and is mainly intended for teachers, education consultants and school administrators working in the public and private education systems as well as in Indigenous education organizations.

The aim of Digital Education Day is to inspire participants and to foster their commitment in using digital tools in both remote and in-person pedagogical settings. It is also an opportunity to encourage pedagogical innovation among the participants, whether they have basic, intermediate or advanced knowledge of the topic. Registration will open here on October 12 at 8 a.m.

We invite you to consult the following documents, namely the event poster and the frequently asked questions (FAQ) to get more information on the organization of the day.

Details of the extensive programming for Digital Education Day are provided below.

As there are workshops with limited space, you must complete both a general registration for the entire day and a specific registration for each of the limited-capacity workshops in which you would like to participate.

Workshop 1 — Young people and social media: Beyond the preconceptions

“Young people are always on their phones!” “Young people are super good with technology.” “Young people don’t know what they’re doing on social media.” Does this sound familiar to you? It’s not uncommon for adults to make unfair assumptions about young people and technology. In the form of a question-and-answer game, this workshop will explore perceptions of young people and social media in 2021. The goal is to overcome preconceptions and re-establish the facts in order to lead students in reflection, which contributes to their ability to take action.
