The Brittany Regional Council supports the use of digital tablets in the classroom, but on a case-by-case basis. Traveling Thursday to a high school in Brest (Finistère) which is experimenting with this educational support, Vice-President Isabelle Pellerin explained that there would not be one tablet per student.
The tool is not new but since the first confinement in 2020, more and more Breton high schools are asking for individual tablets. At the Vauban general-purpose high school in Brest, the 210 second-graders now work on a touch screen. “We found that there was a digital divide between the students,” said Gilles Bénic, the principal. Who sees in this innovation “a means of adapting to today’s society”, by offering “a more interactive teaching”.
Since the start of the school year, the Brittany region has supported around ten similar experiments. Isabelle Pellerin, the vice-president in charge of high schools and high school life, came to collect this Thursday the first reactions of the students and teachers of the Vauban high school. “It’s a real plus for us,” Anne Orhon, professor of electricity, told him. “It allows us to have an individual tool for each student.” The transition is even more natural for young people, like Josselin, in second Bac pro Professions of electricity and its connected environments (MELEC): “Before, we often forgot the documents. Paper is boring, you always have to write, open the workbook … There I just have to make two or three clicks and I get to my course, it’s really more efficient, and we are more motivated for homework “.
However, the generalization of tablets for all high school students is not on the agenda. “It is a tool which is now essential for certain learning, but digital technology is not the alpha and omega of teaching”, explains Isabelle Pellerin. She recalls that the parents of students are sometimes reluctant to go all-digital: “some tell us ‘we don’t want our child to come home with a tablet!’ so you have to deal with all that, trust the teachers, the pedagogues who have to measure and measure when the tool is interesting and when it is not. “
Concretely, educational projects around digital education will be studied on a case-by-case basis, in close collaboration with the rectorate. For the Brittany region, digital technology in high schools represents a budget of 15 million euros each year.
