« My grades have improved
with the tablet »

A story, a need

In my school, we don’t always have pens and books to use to write during the lesson.

A little step which has changed everything

One day we received tablets at school. We can write directly on the tablets like books and complete little exercises. We use them every day.

A new start

I learned about maths by myself and my grades have improved. I’ve watched videos on grammar, spelling and conjugation.
