Canopé is the network for pedagogical creation and support. It is a public structure related to the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research, which designs, produces and distributes multi-format and transmedia educational resources to meet the needs of the educational community: teachers, school librarians, managerial staff, students, parents, associations and educational and political local authorities…. Canopé provides high-performance teams and services in order to contribute to rethink learning in schools, help further the digital revolution inside our school system, guide teaching personnel through the digital conversion of their activities and ensure success for all of our students and pupils.
The “Atelier Canopé 42” is one of the hundred workshops dedicated to education, that are constitutive of the Canopé Network, and are dispatched all over France. Based in Saint-Etienne, near Lyon, the team yet has an atypical focus: for several years, the Atelier 42 proposes a multitude of resources and activities, which connect the fields of both Education and Design.
The Atelier Canopé tries to provide new services to teachers through experimentations. Two main experimental subjects are explored :
- Bringing innovation to schools through the use of Design
- Using mediation to bring pedagogical support to teachers.
Both experimentations are built on co-creation and design thinking methodologies.
