Marjorie Tonnelier, Teacher of Geography-History-Literature-EMC in the Pierre et Marie Curie High School in Freyming-Merlebach tells us about the advantages of Skolengo offering features that facilitate both the daily preparation and teaching of classes. It is also a tool that allows you to establish an innovative teaching practice: the assisted class.


Skolengo favors the development of digital use

Every day, Marjorie Tonnelier, teacher of Literature-History-Geography and Moral and Civic Studies, uses the Teaching Binder, the Work-to-Do, the Organiser, the Blog and the Messaging service. In a few clicks, she can put all the information which will allow her to teach her class into the Teaching Binder,. To make the activities attractive, Skolengo offers video and image insertion and audio recording.

The teaching binder offers a very aesthetic presentation of courses. It is a tool that facilitates student learning. Students know what they will find in all their courses, along with attractive presentations (images, videos, audio recordings), in the same place. At a glance, they know how the course will unfold.

Moreover, the teaching binder also gives the possibility of doing differentiated teaching in particular with an assisted class, a new innovative teaching practice. It is a real asset for assisting students in difficulty.

With the work-to-do feature, she quickly has the work-to-do for each student in their organizer while ordering the work-to-do. The organizer provides teachers with real time savings being able to disseminate the activity in their teaching binder in one click. Thanks to the binder, students keep their courses over time which allows them to easily find all the information when preparing for their examinations. At the end of each course, she provides a summary article or the extension of the activity in a blog. In this way, "students learn to browse with a digital tool and to develop their general knowledge with supplementary information on course subjects that I put in the blog.” With the messaging service, communication is rapid with students but also with other teachers.


Skolengo is a real complete eco-system in the service of teaching.

Ease of establishing innovative teaching practices like the assisted class

In particular, with the MBN (Skolengo solution) EMS, Marjorie Tonnelier developed the assisted class. . The goal of this new teaching practice is to develop student autonomy. Unlike the inverted class, with the assisted class, everything happens in class. The students work alone or in pairs. The teacher prepares long activities in the Teaching Binder beforehand. The formatting of the Teaching Binder as well as the tools offered (integration of video, pdf, illustrations and audio recordings) allow the teacher to guide the student: the goals of the activities, the guidelines, the videos. Using this teaching method, the teacher is able to manage the heterogeneity of different students.
