Are you a teacher ?
The MyAppEduc experience for teachers: what are the advantages, what does it involve? What is the benefit of working with families and libraries? Is digital media literacy really accessible to everyone? Doesn’t it take a long time? Teachers who have tested the app answer these questions in our video!
Remember that a friendly and non-judgemental attitude towards families and the children’s digital technology use remains the most important factor in a partnership.
Complete the activities in advance. It will help you to anticipate the children’s questions, and to feel more confident using the app.
Ensure you have the right IT equipment at school to use MyAppEduc in the classroom.
Be aware that certain families may be affected by the digital divide and help them find solutions to access IT equipment. You can provide hardware to children who do not have access to technological equipment.
Use targeted and detailed communication materials at the start of the project (class newspaper, Facebook page, blog, etc.). In this way, you can regularly update parents on the project’s progress and its implementation in class.
Organise a meeting with a librarian before getting started. You can suggest that they work with you on
the project and, together, you can reflect on how the partnership should work.
