This prize is awarded to a project using Teach on Mars technology which increases learners’ awareness about societal, environmental and ethical issues. 3 criteria are assessed:

  • Governance and management
  • Learner experience
  • Impact

The project applications were considered by the Teach on Mars jury and three went through to the second round.
It was Edumiam’s project which finally convinced the professional jury during the final deliberations.




Edumiam is a social and solidarity company which provides digital training to support early childhood professionals by supplying them with the resources and training needed to help young children develop their full potential, to ensure equal opportunities.


Edumiam & Teach on Mars

Edumiam adopted the Teach on Mars solution in 2020 with a target population of learners composed of early childhood professionals including childminders, child care workers, day-care staff, etc.

The thematic areas include:

  • Preparing for the French Early Childhood Carer Certificate [CAP AEPE]
  • Early childhood basics (feeding, first aid, management of emotions, etc.);
  • Supporting children (compassionate communication, supporting children’s artistic and cultural development, etc.);
  • Disorders and disabilities → it is this final part which we are now going to review.



Co-creation with experts

To offer in-app ‘understanding disability’ expertise, Edumiam enlisted the support of industry experts.
The project was launched in partnership with 2 associations:

  • Ikigaï, which supports children with autism and autism spectrum disorder to facilitate their inclusion by adjusting their school and out-of-school environments.
  • Gribouilli, a professional child care association, striving to professionalise and promote early childhood professions.

This helps to establish thorough expertise in the field of disability and to enhance the courses from a field-based and operational viewpoint.

Engaging learners through regular monitoring

To foster learner engagement, individual monitoring was introduced. Weekly in-person meetings were organised with learners in order to:

  • Present the course pathway on the application;
  • Ensure learners are getting to grips with digital tools;
  • Provide instructions for the interactive games which can be found throughout the pathway.

“This meeting was a high point because it enabled us to better grasp learners’ expectations and motivations and really understand their daily working lives. Over long discussions, we forged bonds which could be reactivated throughout the course thanks to the meetings and regular monitoring”.
The Edumiam team

During the familiarisation stage, learners receive step-by-step guidance with:

  • A notice of meeting email;
  • An SMS containing the course access codes;
  • An onboarding booklet and a presentation video about the Edumiam app;
  • A phone call to ensure the course has got off to a good start and to answer learners’ questions;
  • Discussions with a pedagogical coach (mentoring meeting on request).

Blended learning to boost anchoring

“The use of different pedagogical methods is key for anchoring learners’ knowledge. Virtual classes throughout the pathway are an added bonus.”
Bruno Bury – Head of Development and Innovation – Air France

Courses in the “Understanding Disability” pathway come in a blended format, using a variety of pedagogical methods:

  • Discovery and anchoring pathway on the app.
  • Virtual classes (discussions, furthering knowledge, questions/answers)
  • Meeting with coaches (a 10-minute phone call)

To explain the method, the very first course the learner follows, “Everything there is to know about your course”, offers a step-by-step guide:

Promoting peer-learning

“The recognition of learners among their peers and the discussions which can result from this, are an added value.”
Bruno Bury – Head of Development and Innovation – Air France

For successful transmission, you can’t beat role playing. Therefore, as part of the ‘Understanding Disability’ pathway, Edumiam devotes an entire course to role playing. The course is split into three sections:

  1. A description of the professional every-day situation
  2. The methodology that goes with it
  3. Experience sharing among peers on the forum via the ‘comment’ feature

Share your experience! • It could be useful for all • You learn alone but never without others



Apart from offering high-quality courses, Edumiam manages to engage learners with its engaging, interactive and customised pathway!
