loísmo, laísmo y leísmo, aclaración Le se emplea como complemento indirecto, tanto para el masculino como para el femenino: «Le dijeron (a él o a ella) una mentira» o «Le extirparon (a él o a ella) el bazo». Lo se emplea como complemento directo, solo para el caso del masculino: «Lo alabaron mucho (a él)» o «Lo vi por la calle (a él)». Dado que hay zonas en las que con esta última función se emplea mayoritariamente le, se acepta también el empleo de le como complemento directo, pero solo cuando se refiere a personas del sexo masculino y en singular, esto es, en los ejemplos anteriores también sería admisible «Le alabaron mucho (a él)» y «Le vi por la calle (a él)», pero se desaconsejarían «Les alabaron mucho (a ellos)» y «Les vi por la calle ( a ellos)» por estar el pronombre en plural. Por otra parte, el leísmo es siempre incorrecto referido a animales y cosas («Se le desbocó el caballo y no pudo dominarle» o «Se le perdió el reloj y no le encontró»).

Twelve Active Learning Strategies Example 1 Example 1 Explanation In order for students to learn effectively, they must make connections between what they already know (prior knowledge) and new content to which they're exposed. The opening of a lecture should facilitate these connections by helping students exercise their prior knowledge of the day's subject matter. The following four slides illustrate strategies which stimulate students' thinking and prepare them to learn. One useful strategy is to open the lecture with a question. Example 2 Example 2 Explanation "Think-Pair-Share" is an active learning strategy that engages students with material on an individual level, in pairs, and finally as a large group. When used at the beginning of a lecture, a Think-Pair-Share strategy can help students organize prior knowledge and brainstorm questions. Example 3 Example 3 Explanation Focused listing is a strategy in which students recall what they know about a subject by creating a list of terms or ideas related to it. Example 4

Définir la littératie numérique Habilo Médias, Centre canadien d'éducation aux médias et de littératie numérique, publie en ligne un document de discussion intitulé « Définir la politique de littératie numérique et la pratique dans le paysage de l’éducation canadienne » visant à définir les caractéristiques et les points d’intérêt de la littératie numérique et de la citoyenneté numérique dans l’ensemble du pays, à explorer des idées et des pratiques pour enseigner et apprendre avec les technologies numériques ainsi que de nouvelles perspectives dans les écoles où l’enseignement et l’apprentissage se font avec ces mêmes technologies. Quelle définition de la littératie numérique ? Selon les auteurs, il n'existe pas de définition consensuelle de la littératie numérique. Pour se forger une solide culture numérique, ils retiennent toutefois l'idée d'une combinaison de capacités technologiques, de compétences intellectuelles et de comportements éthiques.

Think-Pair-Share Think-Pair-Share activities pose a question to students that they must consider alone and then discuss with a neighbor before settling on a final answer. This is a great way to motivate students and promote higher-level thinking. Even though the activity is called think-"PAIR"-share, this is the term many instructors use for pairs and small groups (three or four students) alike. Groups may be formed formally or informally. Often this group discussion "sharing" is followed up with a larger classroom discussion. Some think-pair-share activities are short, "quick-response think-pair-share" and sometimes the activities may be longer and more involved, "extended think-pair-share." Advantages of think-pair-share Instructors find they can have a format change during lecture that only takes a small amount of class time. Steps and tips for using think-pair-share Examples of think-pair-share questions include: Describe and interpret the image. Challenges of the think-pair-share technique

TIC'Édu thématique n°01 Sommaire I. Zoom sur... culture(s) numérique(s) S’il est devenu courant de parler de révolution pour désigner les transformations profondes de nos pratiques socioculturelles actuelles, modifiées dans leur dimension technique, il reste encore à réfléchir aux mutations qu’elles induisent, ou pas, et aux continuités entre les pratiques d’hier et celles d’aujourd’hui : construit-on, partage-t-on et reçoit-on (de) l’information dans des conditions radicalement différentes ? Lors du point d'étape (10 juin 2013) sur la mise en œuvre de la stratégie numérique, le ministre Vincent Peillon, a annoncé un renouvellement de l’éducation aux médias, à l’information et à l’usage responsable d’internet et des réseaux sociaux, pour former les citoyens de demain.
