Dans cet article, je partage le matériel de formation que nous utilisons, avec ma collègue Deborah Dominguez, pour faire découvrir aux enseignant·e·s 12 méthodes actives d'enseignement. Cet atelier d'1h30 se déroule en mode Jigsaw, comme dans l'atelier "Articuler le travail des étudiant·e·s en et en dehors de la classe". L'idée générale de cet atelier est de…
How might we define intelligence? What do we mean when we speak of intelligence and what evidence do we seek when we look for it? Is it a singular, fixed attribute determined at birth or does it vary across time and environment? These are questions educators have struggled with for years and thanks to improvements in brain science are questions that today can be given more complete answers. But away from the world of high-tech laboratory research and MRI analysis or neural patterns what ev

3D printing for kids is a fun way to learn 3D modelling software and enter the complex world of 3D printing design. The popularity of 3D printing and the opportunities for learning in school and home, has given rise to more user friendly 3D design software. Many professional modelling tools are very complex, and require users to take tutorials to get to grips with toolsets and options available. More simple and intuitive software that young children can use with the greatest of ease, is now available. With that steep learning curve reduced, 3D printed toys or objects have become a reality, letting kids express their imagination in a way that only technology can. Even the costs associated with 3D printing have been minimised, with more affordable 3D printers for kids on the market and online printing services for those without a printer. The best 3D printing design software tools for kids, that will excite and nurture creative minds, are listed below.
511 Collaborative classrooms are the learning environments of the future. Schools around the world are saying goodbye to the conventional lecture-based learning space where the students remain inert in their respective seats and the teacher remains at the head of the class. In these new collaborative environments, teachers transition from doing all the talking to purposely creating opportunities for students to learn, and facilitating their thoughts and discussions about what they learn. Keep reading to learn more about collaborative classrooms and discover resources to help you build your own. What are Collaborative Classrooms? Teachers, school administrators, parents, students, and society as a whole can benefit from the collaborative learning model. Why? This model is advantageous in comparison to a traditional classroom because collaborative classrooms: allow respect to be given to all participants—students and teachers build community and value all contributions to deepening understanding and knowledge promote the social and emotional development of students in addition to academic development involve the active participation of learners demonstrate listening, paraphrasing, compromise, and open-ended and thoughtful questions on behalf of the teacher have access to research tools like the Internet engages and motivates students to achieve have clearly-defined goals to measure progress allow the teacher to readily move throughout the space and engage with different groups Collaborative classrooms, from conception to fruition, involve parents and students so that the greater community becomes invested in the project and excited about its outcome.

A l’heure du « tout connecté », inutile de souligner que ceci s’applique également au monde de l’enseignement. Du cours magistral enseigné à des élèves il y a quelques années au cours digital, le monde de l’enseignement est lui aussi en pleine mutation. Et le monde des étudiants aussi.
Dr. John Orlando, associate director of faculty support at Northcentral University, joins us with a unique perspective for teaching online. “If you start thinking like a coach, you will transform the whole way you teach.”
What is the difference between Piaget's constructivism and Papert’s “constructionism”? Beyond the mere play on the words, I think the distinction holds, and that integrating both views can enrich our understanding of how people learn and grow. Piaget’s constructivism offers a window into what children are interested in, and able to achieve, at different stages of their development. The theory describes how children’s ways of doing and thinking evolve over time, and under which circumstance children are more likely to let go of—or hold onto— their currently held views. Piaget suggests that children have very good reasons not to abandon their worldviews just because someone else, be it an expert, tells them they’re wrong. Papert’s constructionism, in contrast, focuses more on the art of learning, or ‘learning to learn’, and on the significance of making things in learning. Papert is interested in how learners engage in a conversation with [their own or other people’s] artifacts, and how these conversations boost self-directed learning, and ultimately facilitate the construction of new knowledge. He stresses the importance of tools, media, and context in human development. Integrating both perspectives illuminates the processes by which individuals come to make sense of their experience, gradually optimizing their interactions with the world
"In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena.
