Quest to learn : l’école où l’on joue à apprendre Malgré les multiples de tentatives de réformer l’éducation en France et ailleurs, le rapport entre l’élève, le professeur et la connaissance n’a guère changé : l’enseignant reste l’unique diffuseur du savoir. Quant à l’intégration des technologies, elle se limite souvent à la salle d’informatique où l’on apprend péniblement quelques fonctionnalités de Word. Ne parlons même pas des jeux vidéos, qui restent le grand Satan. Image : Katie Salen lors de la conférence Hacking Education organisée par l’Union Square Ventures en 2009. Autant d’attitudes dont Katie Salen prend le contrepied. Dans le cadre des rencontres organisées par le CRI (Centre de recherche interdisciplinaire), autour des nouveaux modèles d’apprentissage à l’école et de la place de l’enfant, elle a défendu le rôle de la technologie dans l’élaboration de projets communs dans lesquels l’expertise des élèves est reconnue au même titre que celle du professeur.

La pédagogie active, selon Marcel Lebrun, doit… How can you make a “good” clicker question GREAT? By: Stephanie Chasteen, University of Colorado Boulder | Category: Higher Education Sometimes we can be lucky enough to have access to a great set of clicker questions (see, for example, the list at But often a good set of questions for our course doesn't exist, or another instructor's questions don't quite fit. Factual recall questions are the most common type of question that you might find yourself stuck with. So, how do we take a question like that and turn it into a question that sparks discussion, reasoning, and debate? Bloomifying Your Questions "Bloomifying" basically takes a lower-level question and uses some handy verbs to get ideas on how to make it a higher-level question that requires more thought. The nice thing is that many people have developed lists of verbs that go along with each level of Bloom's Taxonomy – and this is a very helpful thing. Here's an example.

Le maître a-t-il perdu le monopole du savoir ? « Quelle est la probabilité pour que mes étudiants aient déjà tapé sur Wikipédia le sujet de mon cours ? » se demande Michel Serres avant chaque amphi. Cette question, confiée lors d’un entretien à Libération en juin 2013, résume le bouleversement introduit par le numérique dans la relation entre le professeur et l’étudiant : le maître a perdu le monopole du savoir. À l’ère du numérique, l’étudiant ne dépend plus de son professeur pour trouver des informations et accéder au savoir. Il bénéficie de sources très diverses, accessibles en quelques clics, quel que soit le sujet : encyclopédies en ligne, blogs de spécialistes, vidéos explicatives, etc. Autant de ressources qui lui permettent aussi d’être plus actif : il accède à des points de vue contraires et peut discuter l’enseignement qu’il reçoit.
