ECOLE 42, INNOVATIVE EDUCATION
Créative France is a story, but it’s also about education, which must be continuously revamped and renewed to keep pace with our constantly evolving society. It’s about innovative education, like the kind available at Ecole 42, the computer science school founded by Xavier Niel.
It’s the story of Ecole 42, a computer coding school that is constantly bucking the norm and thinking outside the box. The open-minded institution has proven that engaging students with exciting, collaborative projects is an effective way to train some of the world’s best coders. The school has adopted a collaborative pedagogical approach: each student is always learning from, teaching and assessing his or her classmates at the same time. This peer-to-peer method enables students to use their own particular talents to boost group performance. Ecole 42 is the brainchild of its visionary founder Xavier Niel, who is always on the lookout for new ways to identify and recruit new talent and for innovative solutions open to the widest possible audience. It’s the story of a new kind of education—the education of the future. It’s the story of a coding school that writes its own codes.
