school dropout

Apprentis d’Auteuil fights against school drop-out thanks to digital tools

The findings


Using digital technology as a tool in education to prevent school drop-out. That is the aim of the programme that Apprentis d’Auteuil has set up at the Saint-Pie X middle school in Dumont (Val-d’Oise).  


With the right control, digital tools are particularly relevant in new educational approaches that are more personalised and adapted to learners who have dropped out of the system.

Apprentis d'Auteuil's mission


With the support of the Groupe ADP Foundation, this private school that takes in earl school leavers who are experiencing social and family difficulties, has been updated to modern technology.

Fifteen classes were wired and equipped with interactive tablets, 17 teachers and 10 educators were trained in new teaching methods. In this middle school where personalised guidance is key, teaching is based on a flipped-classroom system where the focus is essentially on practice. The tablets now enable the youngsters to work individually on digital media.
