The world of education and training is now impacted by digital technology, which is profoundly changing the way we learn and teach in all disciplines. Art and design schools are no stranger to these transformations, which encourage the emergence of new jobs, new creative tools and spaces. Through the study of six French schools, this article explores the impact of digital technology in training in creative activities. It highlights several ways in which digital technology is introduced in these schools: the development of new tools, the emergence of new careers, and the drive demonstrated by certain individuals. Beyond this, it shows that digital technology encourages the creation of new study programs; it tends to introduce greater complexity in teaching, a form of refocusing on creative activities, and a distancing from tools. Eventually, digital technology is leading schools globally to reflect on its place in the school and to think about the creation of new environments and other places dedicated to technology.
