In order to facilitate the education system and make school life more enjoyable, the Ministry of National Education has set up a highly innovative platform. This is the web portal ecoledirecte.com. This system makes it possible to help the different pedagogical actors such as pupils, parents, teachers and many others. But what exactly is it? What are the characteristics? You will find all the answers to these questions in this document.
Direct school: what is it?
Ecole Directe is a website designed by the company Aplim and launched by the Ministry of National Education to manage French school structures. This platform is intended for all players in the school world and can help them with many tasks. This online tool does indeed give students, teachers and parents access to a lot of information that will be useful to them. It makes it possible to follow a child’s thirteen years of education in a very safe way.
Ecole Directe: how to connect?
To connect to the direct school interactive platform for the first time, you must use a computer, smartphone or tablet. Go to your internet browser and go to the official ecoledirecte.com page. On the left side of your screen, go to the bottom of the “Connect” box and enter your username and password. In general, this information is provided by your institution at the beginning of the school year. If this is your first connection, the system will ask you to enter your email address or phone number. Also choose a secure password. Then click on “Connection”. After this operation, go to your mailbox to receive the confirmation email regarding the validation of your account and click on it.
Ecole Directe: what are the benefits of the platform?
As mentioned above, the Ecole Directe portal offers many benefits for students, teachers and parents. You should know that these actors have their own specific interface.
But before we talk about these benefits, it’s important to take a quick look at the site’s many features. They are divided into 3 groups, namely pedagogy, management and school life. For example, in the pedagogy section we find the various assessment guides, MCQs, test notebooks or even grids.
A messaging function has been integrated so that the administration, teachers, students or supervisors can communicate with each other. For example, they can discuss various topics to improve school life or to solve certain problems. In another section, you can directly download school bills and other documents. A significant time and money saving for the parents of students who do not have to travel to pay their children’s school fees.
Students can view their timetable, grades and results via this online software. They can also receive certain exercises and online courses and be informed about the sanctions they risk if they are late or absent from a course session. A very practical way to encourage children’s self-discipline.
For parents, in addition to the tuition fees mentioned above, they also benefit from extensive access to information such as report cards, their children’s administrative files, and other services such as messaging. The latter is very useful for talking directly with teachers and for tracking the child’s progress very closely.
Teachers get the same features as students and parents, but with a few extras. For example, they can upload online courses or exercises and store them in the platform’s cloud system. They can also call on the parents to guide the students and help them in their difficulties.
