How to teach non-French speaking students ?

Welcoming non-native-speakers students
to our classrooms

Out of 400 students, The Les-Hauts-de-Blémont de Metz secondary school welcomes about 80 non-French speaking students with special educational needs. This diversity is an opportunity for diversity and integration, but also a challenge for these students when it comes to learning about French culture and language. After a period of adaptation to the French language (two months to a year), they join a French classroom and frequently have difficulty expressing themselves.

What are the goals of the Allotab project ?

To better meet the needs of these non-French speaking students, our teams got to work on adapting tablets to educational practices. Tablets have several advantages. They help students to start tasks more easily as the students work by themselves at their own pace, without having to worry about making mistakes. Tablets are a huge motivational tool for students, as well as a pathway to autonomy.
