The ICT Profile for College Students is composed of skills for researching, processing and presenting information. Two other skills can be added: inviting students to work in a network and to use ICTs efficiently and responsibly. These skills are essential to both college and university studies, as well as in the labour market.

Do smartphones and tablets have a place in CEGEPs? An interview with Nicole Perreault, community leader for the ITREP Network

Alain Lallier Webmaster, Portail du réseau collégial

On January 4, 2018, the Journal de Québec published an article entitled: “Tablettes peu utiles au cégep pour les « finissants du iPad » : ces étudiants observent un décalage lorsqu’ils arrivent au collégial” (“Tablets not so useful in CEGEP for “iPad graduates”; these students notice a gap when they arrive in college”). This is one of the conclusions of a study by the team of Patrick Giroux, a professor at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, on the use of a tablet by approximately 80 students, as part of their high school studies. Most of them are now in CEGEP.

I am also showing them how their smartphones can be used as a tool for an educational purpose.
