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.

"The Impact of Information Literacy Instruction on Student Success: A M" by Joni Blake, Melissa Bowles-Terry et al.

"The Impact of Information Literacy Instruction on Student Success: A M" by Joni Blake, Melissa Bowles-Terry et al. | Education and Literacy | Scoop.it
The GWLA Student Learning Outcomes task force analyzed the data from over 42,000 first-time, first-year freshmen and over 1700 distinct courses from 12 research institutions to determine the impact(s) of information literacy instruction integrated into course curriculum on several student success measures. Key findings include: Student retention rates are higher for those students whose courses include an information literacy instruction component. On average, First-Year GPA for students whose courses included information literacy instruction was higher than the GPA of students whose courses did not. Students exposed to library instruction interactions successfully completed 1.8 more credit hours per year than their counterparts who did not participate in courses containing information literacy instruction.
This is the first year of what we hope will be a multi-year longitudinal analysis to determine if these gains are sustained and built upon with additional information literacy instruction in higher-level courses, and the impact this might have on graduation rates.
Future years will also examine which teaching methods consistently show the highest student gains, so institutions may tailor their instruction programs to maximize the success of their students. The task force is currently compiling the second year of data, and that will be shared when it is completed.
