"L'enfants et les écrans" : psychologie et cognition | Académie des Sciences  -InternetActu.net | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"

 

L’Académie des sciences vient de publier un rapport (.pdf) sur la relation des enfants aux écrans [...],  rapport qui tord le cou à nombre d’idées reçues sur le sujet et fait le point sur les connaissances scientifiques, éducatives et neurobiologiques. [Ce rapport...] a voulu insister pas seulement sur les effets délétères des écrans – des effets qui existent, qui influent par exemple sur le temps de sommeil, l’attention, mais de manière plus rare qu’on a tendance à le penser – mais surtout sur les effets positifs de notre exposition aux écrans et notamment de l’exposition des plus jeunes a

aux écrans. [...]"

Monica Mirza's insight:

Ce rapport, présenté ici par InternetActu, intègre les dernières données scientifiques de la neurobiologie, de la psychologie et des sciences cognitives, de la psychiatrie et de la médecine, dans le contrexte d'une réalité rapidement évolutive des technologies et de leur utilisation. L'enseignant y trouvera -au delà d'une utilisation pédagogique des écrans-  une réflexion active et fructueuse.

Bright Screens Could Delay Bedtime | Scientific American

Bright Screens Could Delay Bedtime | Scientific American | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

Using a tablet or computer in the late evening disrupts the body's melatonin production [...] Melatonin tells your body that it is night, helping to make you sleepy. If you delay that signal, Figueiro says, you could delay sleep.[...] The dose of light is important, Figueiro says; the brightness and exposure time, as well as the wavelength, determine whether it affects melatonin. Light in the blue-and-white range emitted by today's tablets can do the trick—as can laptops and desktop computers, which emit even more of the disrupting light but are usually positioned farther from the eyes, which ameliorates the light's effects.

2025 ex machina | Education critique aux media

2025 ex machina | Education critique aux media | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
Le serious game 2025 ex machina permet aux jeunes de 12 à 16 ans de mieux comprendre les risques liés à internet en apprenant à porter un regard critique sur l'utilisation des réseaux sociaux, de l'internet mobile, des blogs ou des chats...
Monica Mirza's insight:

Pas le temps de tester 2025 ex machina, mais la présentation de ce serious game me met l'eau à la bouche...

Utiliser un serious game pour l'éducation aux media me semble une excellente idée... l'on attaque le sujet in media res !

Le graphisme (relativement classique pour ce thème-là) et la 'musique' (répétitive à souhait, on se croit face à une machine en salle de jeux) sont efficaces aussi.

Un bilan dès que j'ai un moment... et à ceux qui ont déjà essayé, n'hésitez pas à donner votre feedback :-)

"TabPilot is a cloud-based management system that puts teachers in control of entire sets of classroom tablets.  Teachers choose from thousands of apps available on the Android platform.  Students see only the apps configured by their teacher and are locked out of system settings.  Use our affordable tablets or select 3rd party tablets.
