A librarian or pedagogical technician (SMTE - Spécialiste en moyens et techniques d’enseignement), ICT counsellor and other actors working in each college may be asked to collaborate with teachers to participate in one or more steps towards the integration of the ICT Profile in a program. They can also be asked to support teachers individually in the integration of specific ICT skills in a course. But what is their role? Of course the answer can vary from one college to another, depending on the distribution of dossiers and responsibilities, but here is an overview of the usual mode of collaboration:
Even though the development of skills related to ICT is an institutional affair that must be mostly managed by teachers in programs of study, the most important persons, at the heart of this process, are students. To teach them the importance and pertinence of the ICT Profile in their program is an important element for a successful integration of ICT skills. Of course, frequent updates are to be expected within courses. The ICT Profile can be very motivating for some students right at the start of their college studies; it can even play an important role in promoting programs. In addition, knowing the teaching context in their program will help students who might be technophobes or have weaker skills when they start at college quickly engage in the right path.
