Lettrure scientifique à l'ère du numérique
La lettrure désigne de manière interdéterminée les activités de lecture et d’écriture perçues comme une seule et même activité, quand la littératie désigne selon l'OCDE (2000) « l’aptitude à comprendre et à utiliser l’information écrite dans la vie courante, à la maison, au travail et dans la collectivité en vue d’atteindre des buts personnels et d'étendre ses connaissances et ses capacités ».
Il y a donc l'activité de l'activité de lecture-écriture (lettrure) et l'aptitude à comprendre et à utiliser l’information écrite (littératie). Quelques 700 années séparent ces termes et cette appréhension de l'appropriation des objets culturels. Il sont aussi fortement liées par un processus, car c'est bien par un travail répété de lecture et d'écriture que l'on acquiert les connaissances qui permettent l'intelligibilité du monde sensible.
En contexte numérique les dispositifs de communication rendent indissociables les pratiques de lecture-écriture. Quand le « clavier » s'impose au « stylo », « l'écran » réuni le « livre » et « la page blanche », les blogs (et autres CMS) proposent un « web inscriptible », les réseaux sociaux négocient la « clôture du texte » et les moteurs de recherche ordonnent le « sommaire »… nos schémas cognitifs, nos pratiques informationnelles et communicationnelles se modifient.
Analyser « la lettrure scientifique à l'ère du numérique » c'est mettre en lumière ce processus, ces modifications en contexte scientifique. Le terme de Lettrure est ici préféré au terme Litteratie pour renforcer l'aspect « littérature savante » énoncé au 13e siècle, mais comme nous l'avons indiqué il s'agit bien de la même démarche reconduite, renouvelée par des techniques intellectuelles et dispositifs de communication.
