The fact that digital technologies matters are no longer debated in France but now the focus shifted to the discussion of what are the goals of the digital policies in France. Digital Council of France argues that just knowing of how to use computer does not mean that the level of knowledge is sufficient. Digital literacy requires to use computer facilities, its software and programme designs. This skills and knowledge should transmit to new generations in order to create citizens and workers with digital knowledge. It can be promoted by various means such as peer-to-peer work, experimental learning and learning-by doing methods. Very detail recommendations had been provided by the Jules Ferry 3.0 Pene at. al (2014). But the question that needs to be asked here is: Can the French education system provide such kind of learning methods for all the pupils at public schools? And are the teachers themselves digital literate?
