It would be wise to enable schools to install equipment in line with their specific needs and to open up the range of possibilities through calls for projects, an idea suggested by Samira (Tubize)
persist. Here are two of them:
- in Wallonia, the
‘école numérique’ (digital school) offers the possibility of taking part in
calls for projects. This enables schools (if they so wish) to obtain tablets or
any other equipment chosen by the teaching teams so to move practices towards
the digital age. Nothing like this exists in Brussels and yet it is the capital
A Multimedia Plan
has been put in place for our schools in Brussels and many of them have already
taken advantage of it. Here again, however, the most recent Plan from 2012
favours secondary schools (for example enabling them to be equipped with
tablets) and our primary classes are relegated to second place, as they
obviously do not have this possibility. Similarly, Fibre-to-the-school only
concerns secondary schools.
interactivity, learning through fun-filled educational activities, opening up
to knowledge and to the world are also an important part of primary education!
why don’t we think about a structure like the ‘Digital School’ to equip schools
through calls for projects?
