A portfolio to support the francization process of newcomers in Quebec.

Project Type:  percolab's collaboration
Méthodologies:  Agile
Results:  Creating thirty modules of a learning portfolio

In our current socioeconomic context, immigrants are increasingly expected to be more self-reliant when it comes to learning French. Thus, the outilVIF digital portfolio is an online tool that provides customizable learning approaches based on each user’s life course.

outilVIF is a learning activity manager that allows immigrants in the process of learning French to elaborate and share digital portfolios. The tool was developed by social organization percolab for the Laval and Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Boards as well as CEGEP Montmorency.

Procédurable managed the design of the digital porfolio’s learning modules and help files. We supported the training of the teaching staff by providing the appropriate tools to implement the portfolio. This proposed new learning approach represents an innovation in the process of integrating and francizing newcomers in Quebec. In addition to being useful to newcomers, it is adapted to the needs of those who teach French as a second language and work in immigration support.
