e-learning LyText est un environnement informatique d’aide à la préparation de l’épreuve anticipée de français qui permet une « manipulation interactive du texte littéraire ». LyText se compose d’une base d’extraits textuels (issus des listes qui sont présentées à l’épreuve orale de l’EAF, et offrant par la même occasion un ensemble de références à des œuvres patrimoniales) et d’un modèle de connaissances appliqué sur chaque extrait. Ce modèle de connaissances regroupe des informations génériques et analytiques qui sont là pour favoriser la compréhension et l’interprétation du texte. La construction d'une représentation de la signification des textes est une démarche qui doit être de plus en plus personnelle et individuelle. L’apprentissage dispensé par le système informatique dans cette perspective doit par conséquent être centré sur l’apprenant, ses connaissances et son expérience. L’originalité de LyText réside dans trois caractéristiques Contexte d’utilisation Publications associées

The Importance Of Mobile Learning In (And Out Of) The Classroom There has always been at least some sort of disconnect between how things are taught in a classroom and how things work in the ‘real world’. In some cases, the disconnect is very distinct (how many people took four years of high school language classes only to be able to barely introduce yourself in the language?). Many newer pedagogical models aim to be more practical (like Project Based Learning or Challenge Based Learning ). So it was interesting to take a look at some of the mobile trends (and specifically, the mobile workforce trends) highlighted in this handy infographic to see where education might best make use of mobile learning, since this is what our students will be working with when they enter the workforce. Smartphones and Tablet sales will soon take over laptop and desktop computer sales: Don’t stick just to books – why not let students use the technology they’ll need in the future?

20 Great Rubrics for Integrating Bloom's Digital Taxonomy in Your Teaching June 15, 2014 I have always been inspired by the great work of Andrew Church. This guy has been one of my authority sources for everything related to Bloom's digital taxonomy. Andrew provided a detailed account of how teachers can align the thinking levels of Bloom's original taxonomy with the different digital tools. I have already shared here several examples of web tools and mobile apps that can be used to promote Bloom's digital thinking skills; but today I am sharing with you some wonderful rubrics to help you integrate Bloom's digital taxonomy into your teaching. These rubrics are designed by Andrew Church and are available for free download from this page. Each of these rubrics is related to a tinkling stage of Bloom's taxonomy. Here is a quick round-up of all the Bloom's digital taxonomy rubrics created by Andrew: Remembering:

The Art of Data Visualization: How to Tell Complex Stories Through Smart Design The volume of data in our age is so vast that whole new research fields have blossomed to develop better and more efficient ways of presenting and organizing information. One such field is data visualization, which can be translated in plain English as visual representations of information. The PBS “Off Book” series turned its attention to data visualization in a short video featuring Edward Tufte, a statistician and professor emeritus at Yale, along with three young designers on the frontiers of data visualization. In much the same way that Marshall McLuhan spoke about principles of communication, Tufte talks in the video about what makes for elegant and effective design. What does Tufte mean by this? For those of us who aren’t designers, it’s refreshing to consider the elements of good visual story-telling. So much of the information we encounter every day is hard to conceptualize. Information may be more abundant but it isn’t new, and neither is data visualization. Related Content:

Emilie Bouvrand : "L'usage des Tice vise toujours à améliorer l'expérience d'apprentissage des étudiants" Recommander cette page à un(e) ami(e) Emilie Bouvrand travaille en tant qu'ingénieure d'étude techno-pédagogique à l'Université de Bretagne Sud et pour l'Université Européenne de Bretagne, le PRES breton qui regroupe les quatre universités (Rennes 1, Rennes 2, l'université de Bretagne Ouest à Brest et l'université de Bretagne Sud) et les grandes écoles de la région. Nous l'avons rencontrée pour qu'elle nous parle de son métier. Laissons la parole à Emilie. Un fort intérêt pour l'accompagnement J'ai été engagée par l'UBS en 2008, pour répondre aux missions liées au numérique de l'UEB dans cet établissement. J'avais initialement choisi de m'orienter dans le secteur social, et j'ai obtenu un DUT Carrières sociales et Animation socio-culturelle. Bien que le métier me semble passionnant, je n'avais pas le souhait de devenir enseignante, mais plutôt d'accompagner les enseignants dans leur maîtrise des technologies pour l'enseignement. Dans la réalité, on est parfois assez loin de cet objectif.

Bloomin' Apps This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place.Each image has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Android, Google and online tools and applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite online tool, iOS, or Android app with others. Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".

40 Simple Ways To Use A Smartphone In The Classroom So many ruminations on what smartphone technologies offer the wired classroom begin with some permutation of how, at first, smartphones are often the bane of teachers’ existence because they cause disruptions. This isn’t one of those ruminations. Let’s just go straight to the suggestions, shall we? Use educational apps:One of the simplest strategies for engaging students using smartphones involves taking advantage of the thousands of educational apps as supplements.Create educational apps:After familiarizing kiddos with properly navigating smartphone apps, challenge some of the more tech-oriented ones to design and develop their own; Stanford already offers an open-source class on the subject!

70 useful sentences for academic writing Back in the late 90s, in the process of reading for my MA dissertation, I put together a collection of hundreds of sentence frames that I felt could help me with my academic writing later on. And they did. Immensely. After the course was over, I stacked my sentences away, but kept wondering if I could ever put them to good use and perhaps help other MA / PhD students. So here are 70 sentences extracted and adapted for from the original compilation, which ran for almost 10 pages. This list is organized around keywords. Before you start:1. Arguea. Claima. Data a. Debate a. Discussion a. Evidence a. Grounda. Issue a. Premisea. Researcha.This study draws on research conducted by ___.b.
