Et si l’élève du futur pouvait et augmenter ses capacités intellectuelles et physiques et ne plus avoir la nécessité d’apprendre ?

L'anthropologue américaine Amber Case, directrice du centre de R&D ESRI, décrit les nouvelles technologies comme un prolongement naturel de nos corps. Les objets connectés sont une extension de nous-mêmes, ils augmentent nos capacités, nous confèrent des «superpouvoirs», avec la crainte toujours présente qu’ils prennent le pouvoir sur nous.

 

Les élèves équipés de multiples objets connectés n’auront plus besoin d’antisèches collées sous leurs chaussures. Il faudra peut-être truffer les salles d’examen de brouilleurs d’ondes... Ou alors accepter cette connexion permanente et repenser totalement la définition de l’apprentissage et de ses contenus. Il y a vingt-cinq ans, l’introduction de la calculatrice en cours et en examen faisait polémique. A écouter, les plus réfractaires, les élèves n’allaient plus savoir compter. Finalement, les élèves se sont mis à programmer des fonctions.

Le fait d’être connecté en permanence et donc de pouvoir vérifier une information ou de chercher des réponses permet de développer d’autres compétences que la mémoire et permet en un sens de pousser la réflexion plus loin. Ainsi dans l’évaluation, la restitution de connaissances deviendra sans aucun doute moins centrale que l’utilisation de différentes informations trouvées afin de structurer une pensée.

Review of Natural-Born Cyborgs

Review of Natural-Born Cyborgs | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

A cyborg, or "cybernetic organism", was initially defined as follows: "The Cyborg deliberately incorporates exogenous components extending the self-regulating control function of the organism in order to adapt it to new environments." This verbose sentence can be simplified to, the cyborg represents "a notion of human-machine merging".  

This concept, dear to science fiction writers, is all about humans becoming stronger, faster, and more powerful through the use of integrated technology. One example of this is the cochlear implants used to help deaf people hear again; these implants are more than hearing aids, since they interface directly with nerve endings. Another example is prosthetics, which allow people who have lost limbs in accidents to function almost as before. 

Andy Clark, a cognitive scientist, sets out to recount why, in his eyes, "we shall be cyborgs not in the merely superficial sense of combining flesh and wires but in the more profound sense of being human-technology symbionts: thinking and reasoning systems whose minds and selves are spread across biological brain and nonbiological circuitry." This is quite a statement, if you look at it closely: he is suggesting that the systems we will incorporate into our bodies will be thinking systems, that they will merge with our minds, and that they will be come self-aware.
