The school staff of the first 22 schools should have prepared a statement unanimous : this new repository in the ways of teaching promotes genuine collaboration across the department.
Each teacher implements it independently of the tools of the “mobile classes” consisting of shelves of which the pedagogical content is being followed and taught to the students in a relationship teacher/student digitally-driven, more flexible and more efficient. The digitization of the overall college also benefits to administrative staff and teachers in mobility who wish to stay connected.
SPIE ICS is based on a strong local presence to lead this project to the sides of the Departmental Council of the Sarthe. The teams that modernize the facilities and provide for the outsourcing of the entire Plan College Performance are based within the entity SPIE ICS of le Mans. To strengthen this closeness, and to ensure a responsive service, and without disruption to the colleges, teachers and students, SPIE ICS has created more than a dozen jobs.
