quel est votre avis ? est ce que l’éducation français doit se concentrer sur l'utilisation d'un clavier plutôt que l'ecriture ?

A débattre !

Is there a brain-memory connection to learning cursive that can't be learned with typing skills? What do you think?

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 5, 5:42 AM

So sensible to teach typing, but I find children who can write cursive can read it.  It will be a pity to loose the ability to read old text, e.g. a letter from Granny!

Christine McCartney, a Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching is researching how Finnish teachers utilize authentic, on-going formative assessments in their classrooms on a daily basis. She has created a powerful presentation looking at the 60 year history of the educational trajectories that the US and Finland have taken.

 

She states: "While homogeneity in Finland certainly plays a role in the different trajectories of educational reform in the United States and Finland, a closer look reveals that there might be more at play."
