Organisation Description

Teacher training college belonging to the University of Limoges. We mainly train Master’s students so as to prepare them for the competitive examination enabling them to become either primary or secondary school teachers. We are also involved in in-service training, in many different fields.

Role in the DSoE Project

Our organisation is responsible for the setting up of the Digital Roadmap. We hope that this tool will enable all future schools willing to become a digital School of Europe to discover what a Digital school is and to help them fulfil the required criteria, illustrated by best practices and case studies.

Affiliated Schools

Below you will see links to the website’s of the schools and a brief summary of each school outlining the school environment, technology usage, issues and successes. These are the schools affiliated with ESPE for the DSoE project.

Ecole Marcel Proust Limoges


Ecole Rosiers de Juillac
Ecole de Beynat


We are an average rural primary school with 147 pupils. Most of them come from the rural town of Beynat (1300 inhabitants) et 35% from nearby villages. The socio-economic background is rather average.

We have 6 classrooms with 3 interactive whiteboards. We also have 1 mobile class with 12 laptops and 1 iPad mobile class with 24 iPads. Another IWB should be installed next September.

Our main difficulties are related to the lack of training which leads to a lack of use. We also have maintenance problems: sometimes we cannot work because we have to find solutions by ourselves. Not all the teachers are similarly involved in the idea of using digital technologies.

We managed to get quite a decent amount of equipment. The Wifi network and DSL are rather sufficient and enable us to work quite well. Some of the teachers use it on a daily basis, especially in the higher levels of our school ( ages 9 to 11). Despite the lack of enthusiasm of certain colleagues, we still are a few to be involved in this project and we truly want to become a Digital School of Europe! We hope to be able to make our colleagues change their mind.

Ecole Henri Sautet Brive
Collège André Maurois Limoges



The college is in an urban environment, it is part of a priority education network ( REP ) because the educational level of students is low and they belong to a disadvantaged population. There are 700 students and 27 classes and we are 50 teachers.

We work with a computer room with 15 computers (PC) and we have 8 computers in the school library. We also have printers and scanners and each teacher has a laptop and a projector in the classroom.

Digital technology is used to research information, creating videos, texts and newspaper. Teachers also work with serious games and work on student responsibility on internet.

Collège Jean Moulin Brive



We are an average lower secondary school (300 pupils) situated in the town of Brive la Gaillarde, Limousin area, (45000 inhabitants). Our school is in a priority educational zone and our pupils are from a low socio economic background. There are 5 special needs forms, one specialised in welcoming multilingual learners (there are 22 different nationalities in our school), and one for travelling families.

We have a videoprojector and computer in each room. We have about 70 computers. Each pupil has an iPad which is used during some lessons. These iPads are provided by the local educational network. We also have interactive whiteboards.

We have problems with the maintenance of the digital environment. We would need more recent equipment. The Wifi is not always sufficient nor the band width. However, it is about to change.

Last year we set up an interdisciplinary project (10 different subjects) which used digital technologies. All the teachers took part in this project. All the Form7 pupils (Aged 11-12) have a one hour session a week, working on the iPad and computer, with a teacher so as to help them individually. Both teamwork and management make it possible for us to envisage becoming a Digital School of Europe.


Collège de Beynat
Collège A. France Limoges



We’re an average lower secondary school (about 300 pupils) over 15 typical forms and 5 special needs forms (about 70 students). We are located in the near suburbs of Limoges. We belong to a high priority educational area since our population is from a low socio-economic background.

We have 150 PCs including teacher laptops working with windows and Linux- distributed over 2 computer rooms , the school library and in the language lab. We have wifi and adsl. We also have 3 Apple-TVs and 5 iPads and a video projector in each room (about 40), a video room, a nas.

We have problems with the quality of our network and the maintenance of our computers. We only have 2 computer rooms and would rather have the possibility to have additional computer in each room. Dealing with the management of licenses and buying new software is also difficult.

Good teamwork and management. There is a real desire to develop the practises inside the school. We have at last managed to have a real computer lab with distant supervising. Development never stops, despite financial hardship.
