  • Context, issues : During the creation of the application of the Leader program, the digital usages were identified as a priority to support and, especially in the educative digital field.
    A work was created with the National Education allowing to understand better the issues of the digital equipment in schools, equipment, which is the resort of the municipalities.
    We can’t imagine a school without digital as it’s already part of the pupils’ life to the point that it influences their behaviour, their valour and competences. Its utilisation isn’t enough to the acquisition of a digital culture, it is essential that the school guide the pupil through the elaboration of a citizen path.
    The digital technologies represent an educative tool. Their usability logics aren’t always accessible by the experience. Apprenticeships are essential especially if we want to avoid social inequalities.
    The technologies are carrying a true pedagogic promise, if we take care to articulate well their potential with a serious and didactic reflexion.

Conditions of success

  • Points of vigilance, difficulties to pass through, success factors : National education and community dialogue are the main factor of success, we cannot impose a "digital equipment"
    The dividing line with the FEDER, which intervenes beyond 25 000 €, supports projects in rural communes, from 1 to 3 classes
    Vigilance point: follow up of the equipment, especially in terms of maintenance, but also the question of the teacher’s formation
