Alix Adrien, President, Quebec Board of Black Educators

Online Education - The Experience of the Quebec Board of Black Educators

In 2020, at the onset of the pandemic and during the lockdown, summer programs were limited to outdoor activities. The QBBE promptly transitioned its established onsite Da Costa Hall summer school program to an online platform.  At the beginning of the subsequent school year, the distance learning initiative was extended to include educational academic support for elementary, high school and CEGEP students. This presentation will provide the theoretical framework which supported this initiative, will reflect on the conditions created by the mobilization of black community organizations in response to the technological divide which inspired this project, and will relate the challenges, both logistic and educational, that emerged from it. This keynote address will share the findings of our experience in respect to the needs assessments that were used to customize our programming and offer possible research opportunities in the field of distance learning as it applies to a younger demographic.
