Edumoov, a solution to facilitate the organization of teachers
Edumoov is an online platform created in 2014. Set up by school teachers, it is aimed atprimary schoolteachers. The aim is to automate and optimize the daily tasks of teachers in order to save them time.

Students and parents also have access to this platform in order to have a follow-up and a link with the teacher.

This allows, among other things, to ensure educational continuity while maintaining a link with the parents concerning their child. The second is Edujournal, this application is only for teachers. Indeed, this allows them to organize their schedule by structuring their days. Finally, Edulivret is the booklet of notes and skills online. This allows parents to have a personalized follow-up of their child as well as his notes.

In fact, 52,000 new teachers and 270,000 new parents signed up for the platform in 2020. With more than one million users now, the platform has had to put in place colossal ways to meet important needs from teachers and parents.
Digital transformation in education, mobilization of the New Aquitaine region
Training and education are not sectors spared from the health crisis. For the past year, all training establishments have been subject to forced closures or severe restrictions in terms of capacity to accommodate and to respect barriers. Whether it is in primary, secondary and even tertiary education, no one has escaped it. Indeed, the first containment affected all establishments under the same banner. Each student found themselves taking his classes remotely, more or less well equipped and prepared.
To ensure educational continuity and to maintain hybrid education, the New Aquitaine region has responded. In November 2020, it launched several calls for projects and expressions of interest on education technologies. In a context where adaptability and changes in teaching methods are necessary, the region is mobilizing its stakeholders. The aim is to develop digital teaching tools that are efficient, ethical and respectful of the environment and personal data. The main objectives are to strengthen the digital education and training sector in the region. In addition, it is also necessary to support education actors in the evolution of thedigital learningsystem.
Thanks to this call for projects, New Aquitaine has created Ed Lab and will incubate 9 projects selected out of 102 applications. A new selection will be held during 2021 to select other innovative projects and meet all the needs of the sector.
