« Enseigner à l'aide d'un tableau blanc tactile et interactif »

« Enseigner à l'aide d'un tableau blanc tactile et interactif » | TELT | Scoop.it

« Les établissements scolaires accueillent aujourd'hui de nombreuses solutions numériques pour faciliter le travail des enseignants et des élèves. L'utilisation des tablettes tactiles en contexte pédagogique est bien sûr l'une des illustrations les plus parlantes. Des solutions plus complexes et intégrées émergent également aujourd'hui, qui permettent de substituer le « tableau noir » à des dispositifs partiellement ou entièrement numériques. C'est le cas de l'offre « e-Ecole pour tous de SFR », un pack d'outils et de services pédagogiques qui permet aux enseignants d'organiser leur cours autour d'un « tableau blanc interactif » connecté à internet.


Via Vincent Martinet, Délégation Académique au Numérique Educatif - Académie de Nice
Shona Whyte's insight:

Infomerciale SFR/SMART, mais commentaire intéressant de l'enseignante du primaire du reportage :

 

"Je n'ai personnellement eu aucune difficulté particulière, comme j'ai bénéficié d'une très bonne formation sur l'utilisation du tableau et du logiciel. L'interface de ce dernier est par ailleurs très claire, les icônes sont faciles à comprendre. Même si l'on ne se souvient pas de l'intégralité de la formation, on retrouve intuitivement tout ce qu'on peut faire avec le logiciel. 

En revanche, l'intégration du tableau blanc demande de repenser la manière dont on présente les cours. Cela demande un peu de travail pour modifier le support, en créer d'autres, et tirer partie du côté « interactif » que procure cette solution."

 

Pour moi la "très bonne formation" est plutôt rare, mais le côté "intuitif" de la prise en main du TBI l'est moins, ainsi que l'envie de changement pédagogique pour rendre les enseignements plus interactifs.

EFL materials for French-speaking teens: 6 units

What is here?
The materials consist of 6 modules designed for learners of English who know French. Each of module targets an area of similarity or difference between the two languages. Two units focus on grammar (adjective comparisons and possessive determiners his/her), one focuses on pronunciation (/h/), and three focus on vocabulary (word parts, homonyms, and cognates).

Who are the activities for?
The units have been developed for children in grade 6 (age 11-12), but teachers who have used them agree that, with slight adaptations, they would be appropriate for use with students in secondary school, as well as with intermediate-level adults.

Why raise cross-linguistic awareness?
The basic principle we kept in mind while developing the materials is that comparisons with an already-known language can be helpful as learners study a new language. This is especially true for French learners of English as the two languages have many features in common. For instance, a large proportion of the words are similar in form (cognates) and offer helpful clues to meaning, although learners may not always notice these ‘good friends’. Of course, there are also many differences between French and English, and some can be problematic, especially when the learner incorrectly assumes there is a similarity. We know that some learners silently compare languages in their heads; others do not realize that their first language (or another language they know) can be a valuable resource. The modules we provide here are designed to enable the teacher to make explicit comparisons between the learners’ L1, French, and their L2, English, in order to speed up learning.

How to use the materials?
The modules are designed to be used independently and need not be used in sequence. But in order for the learning to be effective, it is important do more than just one or two of the activities in a module. Each module introduces and practices a feature (major lesson) and provides follow-up activities for review and expansion later (mini-lessons). In our research, we found that consolidating learning in the follow-up activities was important.

Let us know what you think! We are interested in knowing how these activities worked for you and your ideas for improving them.

La circulation internationale des idées en didactique des langues: Liddicoat & Zarate, 2009

Le numéro 46 de « Recherches et Applications » traite d’un thème sur lequel s’interroge inévitablement tout enseignant-cherc heur, et qui soulève des questions essentielles : comment les idées circulent-elles (ou non) en didactique des langues ? Quel enseignant, en effet, travaillant dans un contexte éducatif autre que le si en, n’a pas éprouvé un jour la sensation que les concepts, pourtant reconnus et répandus, qui dirigent sa pratique, ne rencontrent aucun écho auprès de son public ou de  La Societe Japonaise de Didactique du Francais NII-Electronic Library Service ses collègues ? Quel chercheur n’a pas perçu plus d’une fois dans des disc ussions avec ses homologues d’autres horizons que le même mot scientifique – le même signifiant – ne possède pas toujours le même signifié et recouvre des réalités irréductiblement différentes ? C’est autour de constatations similaires, qui mettent en jeu une réflexion approfondie sur les contextes, que Geneviève Zarate et Anthony Liddicoat ont réuni 15 cont ributions, éclairant la probléma tique du sujet et/ou des cas de transferts d’idées dans des contextes particuliers (Japon, Chine, Cor ée, Émirats arabes unis, Australie, Égypte, Tunisie).

Shona Whyte's insight:
Two perspectives on language problems as experienced in the real world, via
1. "linguistics applied:" the imposition of necessarily partial linguistic account on the reality of language experience
2. "applied linguistics:" the accommodation of a linguistic account to other partial perspectives on language so as to arrive at a relevant reformulation of `real world' problems.

They are an excellent way to work on your, or your students’, listening skills, as you can listen to them as many times as you want to. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also manipulate files so that they are faster or slower, or so that you are only listening to an excerpt of the whole programme.

LE MOT DU PRÉSIDENT


Chers amis du GERAS,


En mars 2010, l’éditorial de notre revue consacrait sa 3e section au « devenir de l’ASP et ses relations avec le secteur LANSAD » et en appelait à « spécialiser le secteur LANSAD ! » grâce au développement de masters LES (Langues étrangères spécialisées) (ASp 57 : 4, 9). Depuis, un lent cheminement intellectuel et institutionnel a été engagé en ce sens par de nombreux acteurs et le rapport public que la Commission recherche de la SAES a présenté le 3 juin dernier au congrès de la Société à Lyon en cristallise de nombreuses avancées. Cet état de lieux assorti de propositions s’appuie sur les travaux de plusieurs chercheurs parmi lesquels figurent des membres du GERAS.

The EuroCALL Review seeks to fulfil the stated aims of EUROCALL as a whole, and more particularly to promote the use of foreign languages within Europe and beyond, providing an international focus for the promulgation of innovative research in the area of computer-assisted language learning and technology-enhanced language learning in education and training. Typical subjects for submissions include theoretical debate on language learning in technology-rich learning environments and their influence on design; practical applications at developmental stage; evaluative studies of the use of technology in the teaching and learning process; assessment of the potential of technological advances in the delivery of language learning materials and enactment of language learning activities; exploitation of on-line information systems; and discussions of policy and strategy at institutional and discipline levels. Survey papers are also welcome.
