Enfants et écrans : psychologie et cognition L’Académie des sciences vient de publier un rapport (.pdf) sur la relation des enfants aux écrans (disponible également sous la forme de livre aux éditions Le Pommier), un rapport qui tord le cou à nombre d’idées reçues sur le sujet et fait le point sur les connaissances scientifiques, éducatives et neurobiologiques. Comme le précisait Jean-François Bach, secrétaire perpétuel de l’Académie des Sciences lors de la présentation publique du rapport, l’Académie a souhaité éclaircir les bases scientifiques de nos usages excessifs des écrans (voir les vidéos des présentations). Un rapport qui a voulu insister pas seulement sur les effets délétères des écrans – des effets qui existent, qui influent par exemple sur le temps de sommeil, l’attention, mais de manière plus rare qu’on a tendance à le penser – mais surtout sur les effets positifs de notre exposition aux écrans et notamment de l’exposition des plus jeunes aux écrans. A l’inverse, chaque culture apporte également son lot d’avantages.

10 Free Tools for Everyday Research - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - @soxnevad Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet? I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you know what you’re going to get. Quite frankly, I like Wikipedia because it provides students with a starting point for research and I am particularly fond of the way I’ve seen so many students develop their own method of research by using the links at the bottom to find more information. As educators we are faced with the challenge of teaching students to efficiently use the Internet to find and use information. Searching for information and making sense of it is a process that involves critical thinking and it is an important skill. Fortunately, there are many free digital tools available to help students efficiently sift through an overwhelming abundance of web content to find the relevant and reliable information they need.

Developing an Online Course - Teaching Commons Faculty Instructional Technology Services (FITS) provides training to faculty planning or designing an online or hybrid course and to departments planning for an online program. Re-conceiving a course for online delivery involves designing active and collaborative learning activities that take full advantage of digital communication.

Selon deux enquêtes publiées fin avril sous le titre "DIF: Huit ans après sa création, quelles évolutions?" par le groupe Demos, un acteur important du marché de la formation professionnelle, la moitié des travailleurs ne l'ont jamais utilisé, mais cette part est en légère diminution.

Over 100 ideas for using Twitter in the Classroom This handful of resources provide about 100 different ideas for, and examples of, using Twitter in the classroom. It’s been almost 8 months since I published the post, “6 Examples of Using Twitter in the Classroom”, about uses of the popular micro-blogging tool in the instructional setting. This post generated a lot of traffic, and continues to attract hundreds of viewers every week. Since that brief posting, I’ve come across a lot of articles containing examples and suggestions for using Twitter in instructional applications. I’ve combed through many of these and tried to boil down the redundancies to create a rich set of idea-laden resources. Information about Battery Packs The battery pack is one of the defining aspects of any PEV project; by and large it determines the weight, range, and cost of the vehicle. For these reasons a solid understanding of the various battery types is more than a little useful. General Battery Types While there are a lot of chemical combinations that can and have been made into useful batteries, in practice there are only four rechargeable types readily available in sizes suitable for ebikes. These are Lead Acid (PbA), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), Nickel Cadmium (NiCad), and Lithium-ion or Lithium Polymer. For a long time, lead acid has been the defacto standard for EV's.

Travail collaboratif à distance et formation par alternance Le travail collaboratif à distance est une formalisation parmi d’autres d’un travail en réseau, il peut être mis en place dans le cadre fermé d’un ENT (Espace Numérique de Travail) ou bénéficier des nombreux outils disponibles sur les réseaux sociaux. Il s’inscrit pleinement dans ce qu’on appelle le Web 2.0 (Internet vu comme un lieu de mise en commun, de partage et de création de ressources). Il faut le différencier du travail coopératif pour lequel chacun des acteurs a une mission bien définie au départ, travaille chacun de son côté pour une mise en commun lors de la réalisation finale. Le travail collaboratif met en jeu des interactions entre les acteurs d’un projet et permet à chacun de s’exprimer et de mettre en oeuvre ses compétences pour telle ou telle étape du travail demandé. Les atouts du travail collaboratif en formation, en terme de compétences à acquérir, développer ou mettre en oeuvre : Quels outils mettre en oeuvre ?

Free eBooks by Project Gutenberg On August 26 2020, the Project Gutenberg website underwent some major changes. These changes had been previewed since early 2020, and visitors to the old site were invited to try the new site, including giving input via a brief survey. The old site is no longer available. Are these the best 100 children's books ever written? To celebrate Children's Book Week, which runs throughout the UK until Friday 11 October, the reading charity Booktrust has drawn up its "definitive list" of the 100 best books to read "before you're 14". The list falls into four age groups – 0-5 years, 6-8 years, 9-11 years, and 12-14 years – and 25 titles have been voted into each. Many of the Booktrust picks, alas, were published long after my 14th birthday, although I have notched up many of the titles since. In my view, the list does what it ought to. Scanning it, I felt an overwhelming urge to tackle the books I've not yet read, and to speak up loudly for those I thought were missing, recommending them with wild-eyed zeal to any handily passing child.

Boom des formations mixtes et du coaching Une enquête de l'Observatoire Cegos menée dans plusieurs pays d'Europe dont la France révèle que les formations mêlant présentiel et e-learning dites "mixtes" ont la côte auprès des salariés.
