Digital education

Online lessons, free-access encyclopaedias, teaching videos... Digital multiplies the ways to learn. This is why for many years we have been supporting projects that encourage learning in all the countries where we are present. And of course we do this through our own expertise: digital!

School equipment in Africa with digital teaching kits, online training, free learning spaces, volunteer teaching… These are all digital education initiatives that we are running in the countries where we are present. The new technologies are at the heart of our lives. They have a role to play in improving our well-being and life-styles together: digital education is our priority.

Les jeunes au FabLab de Toulouse

We are launching 4 new digital education programmes in 2015

Every day we are going out to meet associations and populations who are in the greatest need. Our role is to bring training content to those who cannot access it. We have, for example, adapted lessons from the Khan Academy. When establishments lack the necessary equipment to show these training modules, we help them. We have equipped schools that had no books or internet with tablets so that thousands of children can access educational content. Content, equipment... training next: our volunteer employees support local schools in implementing our programmes, and also regularly share their professional and personal experience in targeted workshops.

In 2015 we are shifting up a gear with four ambitious programmes: digital schools, "young people for young people", the solidarity FabLabs and Digital Centres.

Digital can be learned. Find out how!
