L'Afrique du Sud va généraliser les cours de mandarin dès l'école primaire à partir de la rentrée prochaine, afin d'améliorer les relations avec l'un de ses principaux partenaires économiques, a appris l'AFP mercredi auprès du Ministère de l'éducation primaire.

L'Afrique du Sud espère apprendre le mandarin «à autant de personnes qu'il sera pratiquement possible», a affirmé Elijah Mhlanga, porte-parole du Ministère de l'éducation primaire.

Le lancement des cours de mandarin, la langue la plus répandue en Chine, fait partie d'un accord ambitieux sur l'éducation entre l'Afrique du Sud et la première économie d'Asie. Celui-ci permettra à la Chine de former des centaines de professeurs sud-africains.

Trois centres culturels chinois, les «instituts Confucius», seront également construits en Afrique du Sud.

Elijah Mhlanga a précisé que ce programme, qui fait partie d'un plan de dix ans signé par le président sud-africain Jacob Zuma en décembre dernier, est déjà sur les rails.

«Il y a des professeurs qui voyagent en Chine pour leurs formations et la Chine va envoyer des professeurs dans notre pays», a expliqué le porte-parole, ajoutant que ce projet était financé par la Chine.

«Allez dans les écoles qui proposent déjà le mandarin et vous serez stupéfaits par le nombre d'enfants qui le parlent», a-t-il poursuivi.

Enseignants critiques

La décision a suscité de vives critiques au sein de la SADTU, le puissant syndicat des enseignants sud-africains, qui a estimé que l'enseignement de cette langue équivalait à «une nouvelle forme de colonisation».

«Nous voulons rendre prioritaire l'apprentissage des langues africaines pour construire la cohésion sociale»,a affirmé la secrétaire générale de la SADTU, Mugwena Maluleke.

«Avec l'omniprésence de la Chine dans toutes les sphères de la société africaine, il serait absurde que notre gouvernement n'arme pas sa population avec l'apprentissage du mandarin», nuance Paul Tembe, chercheur au centre des études chinoises de l'université de Stellenbosch (sud).

«Quand j'étais en Chine en 2004, les écoles apprenaient déjà aux élèves le swahili et le zoulou. C'était il y a plus de dix ans et les chinois ont déjà assimilé ces langues. L'Afrique du Sud est à la traîne», ajoute-t-il.

L'Afrique du Sud possède 11 langues officielles, mais l'anglais reste la langue véhiculaire du pays, notamment dans le business.

Hi! I live in the US and don't know French fluently. I'm preparing for a trip to Haiti to conduct professional development with teachers of the deaf. As you can imagine, they have very little resources. I'm trying to locate french printables. If you have any ideas, I would really appreciate your help. ~Jen Kilpatrick (kilpatrick.jen@gmail.com)

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool | art | Scoop.it
It's important to recognize that a growth mindset is an overall paradigm for personal development rather than a pedagogical tool for measuring academic accomplishment.

Growth mindset should be a philosophy in teaching and learning. Does it replace pedagogy? I don't think so, but I think they work together. Max van Manen's work in the area of thoughtful pedagogy fits well with growth mindset.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, September 20, 2014 4:57 PM

Working with learners of low SES and whose environment more often than not ensures they have a fixed mindset, it is important that we help them to redefine what success is. Too often it is fixed around being rich, having a big car, house, jewellery etc. These learners then become preoccupied with looking for the short-cut to success, to the riches they believe will make them happy. It doesn't work out like that of course. How then to help the alter their thinking? 


Dweck's work is essential in this. But as this article states it cannot be seen as "a task to complete".  It requires a shift in thinking of all in an organisation, a movement for a whole-school way of thinking, involving also parents or carers.  This article by Costa, Garmston and Zimmerman provides a solid basis for promoting growth mindsets in educators. 

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, September 25, 2014 3:08 AM

This article is not specifically related to ICT but it makes some points that all teachers need to consider: how to deal with change, how to grow as a professional, how to collaborate.

How Music Can Improve Memory - Mind/Shift | art | Scoop.it

"The best way to remember facts might be to set them to music. Medical students, for example, have long used rhymes and songs to help them master vast quantities of information, and we’ve just gotten fresh evidence of how effective this strategy can be. A young British doctor, Tapas Mukherjee of Glenfield Hospital in Leicester, was distressed by a survey showing that 55 percent of nurses and doctors at Glenfield were not following hospital guidelines on the management of asthma; 38 percent were not even aware that the guidelines existed."
