The “Éduthèque” program provides teachers and their students with free and secure access to digital educational resources from the offers of major public cultural and scientific establishments with which the ministry has entered into a partnership. It is intended for all primary and secondary school teachers who can register on the dedicated portal using their professional address or have access to it directly via their digital workspace (ENT).

A public service digital education program

The Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports is building the “School of Trust” to ensure the success of primary and secondary school students. Enriching lessons, developing artistic and cultural education, ensuring the continuity of public service in all the territories of the Republic, opening the School to Europe and the world are the strong axes of its action. Éduthèque provides free and secure access to a set of resources allowing teachers to implement any disciplinary and multidisciplinary educational project with their students, in particular for artistic and cultural education, media and information education, moral and civic education .

The ” registration ” page of the portal allows the teacher to create his account using his professional address , as well as to associate a “class account” for his students; it is still possible to create this account dedicated to students a posteriori via the teacher’s “my account” page when the latter is already connected to the portal.

All primary and secondary school teachers have free access to thousands of digital educational resources, selected and structured with the help of the ministry: images, videos, audio files, animations, texts, models, 3D animations… The partners of the ministry also offer many digital services and educational materials associated with this content.

Author’s texts and a video to understand a literary work

The students discover the Roman de Renart , using video and text media from the BnF . In this session, the pupils discover the character of the Fox in literature with the help of texts by different authors featuring a fox.

Exploration of a work and visual production

The proposed approach is based on the exploration of a work by Gaston Chaissac from the Center Pompidou . Through this, the class is engaged in many plastic activities enriched by language activities. This pedagogical scenario is thus placed at the service of a project to create a collective production giving meaning to learning.

The application’s digital tools are used to overlay maps to compare them, enlarge portions of maps to see details, search for a specific location…

Video animation to understand the day-night alternation and the cycle of the seasons

During an investigation process, the Météo France resource leads the pupils to compare their initial representations with an animated simulation of the rotation of the earth.
