EM Normandie launches a revolutionary new tool in the Grandes Écoles community: SmartEcole®. This bold statement confirms its intention to overturn conventional educational models and ride the wave of new technologies and the habits of digital natives. This is not just about being fashionable, however: the School seeks to “make traineeships fun again”...a real early 21st century challenge!
No more passive listening: students become veritable co-creators of knowledge. Blackboards now share the classroom with expression walls, classrooms themselves are connected, lessons are more and more collaborative...quizzes, MOOCs, serious games, conference cycles broadcast live on WebTV, iTunesU or even social media are gradually gaining traction. A major teacher training programme is rolled out. Smarty workshops are introduced, for exchanging best practices between peers.
The Grande École may have its roots in the past, but it is also firmly forward-facing.
2006: EM Normandie’s Master in Management is launched!
