TCA Description

Themes and goals:

This European seminar is aimed at participants who speak French independently (level B1-B2).

This TCA is organised by the Région Académique Nouvelle-Aquitaine in partnership with : 

  • the Grand Est, Bretagne and Pays-de-Loire academic regions
  • Cégeps in Eastern Quebec 
  • Université de Poitiers (in conjunction with their partner in Quebec, Université Laval)
  • eTwinning and Réseau Canopé
  • CMQ du numérique pour la formation professionnelle 4.0 Excellence in Nouvelle-Aquitaine
  • TNE 86
  • IH2EF

The Poitiers education authority is also committed to a proactive digital strategy for education as part of the "Poitiers capital of education". Since 2021, it has been experimenting with the Territoire Numérique Educatif (Digital Educational Territory) scheme and working jointly with local players in this field. 

This transnational activity will be programmed as part of le Festival de la Francophonie

This Erasmus+ European seminar brings together French-speaking participants from Quebec and Europe to promote the use of digital technology as a tool for promoting well-being at school.

The chosen theme is based on two observations:

  • The need to act on the well-being of learners, who have been through a difficult period with the COVID-19 health crisis. This is one of the priorities set out in the 2022 circular from the French Ministry of Education. It is also in line with the objectives of media and information literacy, the fight against cyberbullying and disinformation, including the development of empathy classes and work on psychosocial skills.
  • Digital technology has become an integral part of everyday life in education, both in personal life and in teaching practices.

It is often presented as a source of unhappiness and abuse:

  • Time spent on screens ;
  • Loops of interest algorithms ;
  • Distortion of self-image ;
  • Cyber-bullying ;
  • etc.

However, digital technology can be a tool for improving well-being at school, for both pupils and staff:

  • Personalise learning: skills groups, progressiveness, educational differentiation, continuity, etc.
  • Keeping in touch: in the event of pupil or teacher absence, or closure of the school, etc.
  • Consider new teaching methods: flipped classes, collaborative work, etc.
  • Creating digital tools to promote well-being.

Digital education also helps to develop critical thinking, citizenship and openness to the world. However, education staff are not always at ease with digital tools and their uses.

Against this backdrop, we thought it would be useful to share teaching and educational practices and management practices that promote the well-being of pupils and staff, using digital technology, which could be of interest to the entire educational community.

This approach, which links digital technology and well-being, could enrich the thinking on learning empathy as it is being developed in several school systems (Denmark, France, etc.).

Expected results:

This European seminar is aimed at participants who speak French independently (level B1-B2).

The aim of the seminar is to promote the use of digital technology as a tool for developing well-being and quality of life in schools, and to encourage participants from all over Europe and Quebec to share their different experiences and best practices.

The seminar will focus on a number of themes/priorities:

  • Reversing certain negative representations of the possible uses of digital technology and its impact
  • Increasing participants' ability to develop projects combining digital technology and well-being in their establishments and structures
  • Enriching viewpoints through intercultural exchanges on the care of pupils in different education systems.
  • The seminar will be enriched by presentations from French, Quebec and European experts, presentations of digital projects and tools, workshops for exchanging practices and visits to dedicated facilities.

The seminar will be enriched by talks from French, Quebec and European experts, presentations of projects and digital tools, workshops for exchanging practices and visits to dedicated venues.

Participants will also have the opportunity to meet potential partners from Europe and Quebec and to make contacts in other countries, thus gaining inspiration from practices implemented in other countries and enjoying an intercultural experience.
