To tackle your digital project, your digital educational transition, or aim for the excellence of a 4.0 school, the establishment of specifications and a solid project structure is essential.

A successful digital educational transition project involves a reflection on the objective, then the allocated budgets, the existing and future technical master plan, and finally the identification of the educational and IT teams to support, and those on which you can rely on.

Here are the questions you should ask yourself :

Why are we embarking on this digital educational project ? What are our goals ? (Taming digital ? Set up an educational project already defined, or define a new one ?)

What are the frameworks, the guidelines of the digital transition policy ? Does this digital educational project concern all grades ? Should all the students be equipped ?

As in any project, you must also take into account the constraints you face. These can be varied, ranging from material to budget, including the provision of educational and technical teams. Not to mention compliance with the institution’s internal regulations and the European legal framework on the processing of personal data, the GDPR. 

idruide intervenes in the educational digital project when the educational side is already defined.

As a leader in the education sector, idruide positions itself with powerful solutions simplifying the management of mobile or fixed devices : unified endpoint management (UEM) with Stonehenge, classroom management with Roome, and Internet browsing security management with Web Secure.

Once the stages of the project have been identified, it must be implemented, in particular through the creation of work teams linked to the educational digital transition. It is important to define multidisciplinary teams in order to have an overall follow-up of the project. 

Among them, a steering committee, with the management of the school, but also the teaching teams and referents, not to mention the IT referents (CIO, etc.).

During the brainstorming sessions, teams will have to establish the starting situation (What material is available ? What are the current digital educational uses ?), define the educational project and the digital uses for the future, and then define the ecosystem to enforce.

The definition of the ecosystem requires choosing the educational tools and platforms to keep, and those to acquire. For example, classroom management tools both face-to-face and remote, access to online teaching manuals, and so on. This is also where you have to choose the hardware and means to manage security, identities, access rights, app stores…Once the general context has been perfectly understood by our idruide experts, they perform an analysis, advise you on your environment, and give you various personalized recommendations to build the best digital project. This phase is essential so that the software meets your expectations.

Before the final implementation of your digital educational project and the mass deployment of our solution on your digital fleet, we suggest that you establish a POC (“Proof Of Concept”), or “pilot project”. This is about setting up an experimentation phase during which you can assess how the solution functions in your environment. This step makes it possible to readjust the solution if necessary.

The deployment of your project goes through several steps :

  • the handling of the solution by the technical and educational referents through the transfer of skills,
  • configuration of devices and apps installation by mass deployment,
  • the distribution of devices,
  • the use of devices by teachers through training sessions

To successfully complete your digital educational project, training and long-term support are essential. To do this, it is necessary to define this training program (for whom? To manage what?) And to plan its implementation.

Training must be carried out according to the availability, the needs and digital curiosity of teachers while ensuring regular monitoring to assess their use of digital technology.

Audits on practices can be carried out a few months after the deployment of digital terminals and management tools to organize new training or strengthen the uses.

Human contact, listening and support are among idruide’s cardinal values. We adapt to our users and to the field realities to meet your expectations, as closely as possible.

Our teams combine developers and educational advisers from the world of education. They support you in all phases of your digital project in order to help you analyze your needs, to respond to your specific issues, and ensure follow-up in the training and success of your digital educational project.

Our working groups are present in many French academies as well as in the Ministry of National Education. We are already anchored in the ecosystem of innovative French companies and members of AFINEF, Edtech France et EducAzur.
