During the COVID-19 pandemic, distance learning based on appropriate digital technologies is a key solution to ensure an efficient continuation of learning. Thanks to Pix, which offers access to fully online playful tests and tutorials in French, pupils can develop their digital skills from home, and send their results to their teachers directly from the platform. The teachers can monitor the work and progress of their pupils on the dedicated interface Pix Orga. Pix will allow an exceptional free access to Pix Orga to teachers and schools (Pix certification is not included).
The development of pupils' and teachers' mastery of digital skills is also, in itself, a key factor for the successful implementation of distance learning, by making them able to use digital tools in a appropriate manner. Beyond, it also contributes to strengthen learning systems in the long run.
