Secteur Langues du GFEN | Université d'Eté 21 - 24 août 2012 | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

 

L'université d'été du GFEN se déroulera du 21 au 24 août 2012 à Vénissieux.

"La didactique des langues a connu différentes méthodologies et bien des méthodes, les
dernières en usage étant la perspective actionnelle et celles des manuels en vigueur. Le Secteur Langues du GFEN s'inscrit nettement dans une perspective socio-constructiviste, ou l'auto -le sujet apprenant- prend toute sa place par l'interaction avec les autres -le socio- dans la construction des savoirs. Enseigner les langues étrangères revient alors à penser et élaborer des situations d'apprentissage qui sollicitent le sujet apprenant sur des enjeux d'apprentissage et des situations de communication propices au développement de
l'autonomie langagière. [...]"

"How classes are organized and how instructional events are structured determine to a large extent the nature of the language that students hear and use in the classroom... Two sets of characteristics appear to distinguish classes that work for language learning from those that do not. The first set relates to the way the classes are structured or are organized for instruction, the second to the way language is used in lessons. [...]"

"Appréciation" et "reconnaissance de la valeur professionnelle" des enseignants | Décret du 07/05/2012

"Appréciation" et "reconnaissance de la valeur professionnelle" des enseignants | Décret du 07/05/2012 | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

"[...] Le décret modifie chaque statut particulier pour mettre fin au système de notation, au profit d'un dispositif d'appréciation de la valeur professionnelle fondé sur un entretien professionnel triennal. [...]  conduit par le supérieur hiérarchique direct [... il] donne lieu à un compte rendu qui peut faire l'objet d'une demande de révision.
[...] l'entretien est réalisé sur la base d'une autoévaluation, à l'élaboration et à la validation de laquelle les corps d'inspection sont pleinement associés dans le cadre de leurs missions.
Par ailleurs, les grilles d'avancement d'échelon du premier grade des différents corps concernés sont modifiées en profondeur : le système d'avancement « multi cadencé » actuel (au grand choix, au choix, à l'ancienneté) est remplacé par un dispositif d'attribution de réductions ou de majorations d'ancienneté, par rapport à l'ancienneté exigée pour accéder d'un échelon à l'échelon supérieur. L'allocation des réductions d'ancienneté est établie en fonction des résultats de l'appréciation de la valeur professionnelle. [...]"

"On parle beaucoup de la question du plagiat en milieu scolaire et universitaire, mais le droit d’auteur a bien d’autres impacts sur la sphère éducative. Enseigner et étudier [...] vous ne pourrez utiliser que des oeuvres éditées sur support papier, sauf pour les images, qui peuvent être nativement numériques. Que pour chaque oeuvre utilisée, professeurs et élèves sont censés vérifier si les titulaires de droits concernés sont bien membres des sociétés de gestion collective signataires des accords. Cela vaut pour un livre en entier, mais aussi pour chaque image, photo, illustration figurant dans ce livre, qui nécessiteront des vérifications à la pièce (!). Qu’on ne peut utiliser que des extraits d’oeuvres, sachant que cela correspond à 5 pages consécutives pour les livres, mais seulement 4 pages pour le cas particulier des manuels (!). Que ceci ne vaut qu’à la condition que ces 4 ou 5 pages ne représentent pas plus de 5% de l’oeuvre dont ils sont extraits et pas plus de 20% du support pédagogique dans lequel ils sont incorporés (vous suivez toujours ?).

Foreign languages to be taught at school from age seven | The Guardian

Foreign languages to be taught at school from age seven | The Guardian | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

"[...] The new programmes of study, which are being published for consultation this week, are to be introduced in schools in September 2014. They follow a report on the future framework of the national curriculum in England drawn up by an expert panel chaired by Tim Oates, director of research at Cambridge Assessment, an exam board. One of the most far-reaching proposals is a plan to scrap the levels that children are awarded in Sats tests at the end of primary school. The percentage of pupils reaching level 4 is used to determine whether a primary school is failing. It is not clear what will replace Sats levels. Scrapping them may pave the way for schools to provide more specific details of pupils' progress in subjects. [...]"
