Pour remplacer les devoirs ? Dessin de Jack Kock pour les Cahiers Pédagogiques Supprimer les devoirs est une idée généreuse déjà assez ancienne, mais qui peine à s’imposer malgré les nombreuses restrictions ministérielles, et malgré le fait qu’il est connu et montré que les devoirs ne facilitent pas les apprentissages comme ils le devraient, et augmentent les inégalités scolaires. Pour beaucoup de parents, et d’enseignants, les devoirs restent indispensables car ils constituent le lien privilégié entre l’école et les familles. Aussi, il serait vain de supprimer les devoirs sans penser ce lien nécessaire. A ce titre, le cahier des apprentissages peut présenter de nombreux avantages comme outil pour tisser un nouveau lien entre les temps scolaires et extra-scolaires. L’une des attentes les plus fortes des familles est en effet de savoir ce qui se passe en classe, et qui est bien souvent une boîte noire pour elles. Le cahier des apprentissages ne se confond avec le cahier d’un enseignement. Sur le temps scolaire.

EduSource Tools and Techniques for mobile learning How to Build Course Objectives that Matter The key to success is having clear goals and then mapping out a way to meet those goals. Without the map, you’ll never know if you got where you intended to go. In a previous post we looked at how to build learning objectives. What’s the Purpose of the Course? There are many courses that exist for reasons other than performance improvement. On the other hand, there are many courses that do expect that upon completion the learner is able to do something specific. Understanding the type of course you build is important because it’ll help you craft the appropriate types of objectives, measure their success, and help you manage your resources. Ask These Questions to Create Your Course Objectives Once you understand why you’re building the course you can focus on who is going to take it, why, and what expectations exist after the course. Who is the learner Why is this important to him? I create a simple table to look over the answers. Click on the image to see a larger version. Weekly Updates

Education for the Future: How Do We Prepare Youth for What's to Come? In a globally connected world where technology is becoming more efficient and necessary, the question that comes to mind is: Are we preparing our youth for the future? Many education specialists are predicting certain trends for the future but how will we get there? The current education model will need to be restructured to understand and attain the skills and characteristics which will be necessary for jobs in the future. Here are some teaching strategies you can easily implement to prepare your students for what’s to come. Education for the Future: 7 Teaching Strategies 1. An ambitious attitude can significantly increase opportunities for young people. 2.

mind-mapping-ecole-pour-apprendre-a-tout-age Le Mind Mapping est une nouvelle compétence qui peut être enseignée à l'école, dès le plus jeune âge. Dès que l'élève maîtrise l'outil et la technique, il devient plus actif et plus autonome lors des séquences d'apprentissage. Il comprend et mémorise mieux les concepts. Quelles sont les aptitudes fondamentales qui permettent d’apprendre à l’école comme dans la vie? En fait, dès le plus jeune âge et pendant toute la scolarité, nous apprenons à écouter, à parler, à lire, à écrire et à calculer. C’est à l'aide du langage, au sens large, et d'autres compétences de base que nous pouvons accéder aux autres disciplines comme l’histoire, la géographie, les sciences ou les mathématiques. Mais il existe un technique particulière, bien différente et pourtant tout aussi pertinente qui permet d'organiser et de fixer les connaissances à tout âge : le Mind Mapping. A l’école primaire, les élèves vont progressivement construire eux-mêmes les Mind Maps.

Académie en ligne : tous les cours de l'année en accès gratuit Power Reading Workshop and The Daily 5 "How does your Power Reading Workshop program fit with the Daily 5 model?" I've been asked that question several times recently, so I decided to tackle it in a blog post. I feel fortunate to have been a part of a summer book study that examined The Daily 5, an outstanding resource for teachers written by "the sisters," Gail Boushey and Joan Moser. After participating in that book study, I feel more confident about exploring the similarities and differences between Power Reading Workshop and The Daily 5. Both programs empower students to become better readers by allowing them to select and read books of their own choosing. In both programs, reading instruction takes place through mini-lessons, independent conferences, and small guided reading group lessons. My response is a bit lengthy, but this question is important and it deserves an in-depth answer. Eventually, I jumped in and started implementing the reading workshop model in my classroom.

Ecrire avec le web. Prezi Dans la profusion de nouveautés du Web, il y a incontestablement beaucoup d’outils intéressant mais peu qui semblent révolutionnaires. Il y a eu Google pour la recherche, Wikipédia pour l’intelligence collective Netvibes pour l’agrégation, Twitter pour vibrer en temps réel. Et maintenant y a-t-il Prezi ? Prezi, kezaco ? Prezi est un outil de storytelling permettant de « raconter des histoires » et donc pour faire bref construire des présentations. Si a priori, cela peut sembler n’être qu’un effet sans intérêts, il est en réalité bien plus que cela et modifie de façon majeure la construction de sa présentation.

The Golden Rules of High-Quality Instructional Design The quality of instructional design is often gauged on three things: effectiveness, efficiency, and cost. Effectiveness has to do with how well the instruction enables learners to achieve stated goals or expected outcomes. Efficiency deals with the energy and time invested to complete the instruction while cost covers all expense incurred for its design and delivery. These are good points to begin with. Richard Buchanan, a professor of Design, Management and Information Systems, said it best: “a good design can be defined not only to be creative, stylish with an extraordinary visual look, but it must consider human engagement in its activities.” Follow these five golden principles to help you achieve high-quality instructional design: 1. This is a phrase popularized by Stephen Covey, as you may have noticed. It often starts with a question: what do I intend to achieve? 2. A student-centered instruction is one where learners do more exploring and instructors do less telling. Also read: 3.

Is Google Making Us Stupid? - Nicholas Carr Illustration by Guy Billout "Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. I can feel it, too. I think I know what’s going on. For me, as for others, the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind. I’m not the only one. Bruce Friedman, who blogs regularly about the use of computers in medicine, also has described how the Internet has altered his mental habits. Anecdotes alone don’t prove much. It is clear that users are not reading online in the traditional sense; indeed there are signs that new forms of “reading” are emerging as users “power browse” horizontally through titles, contents pages and abstracts going for quick wins. Thanks to the ubiquity of text on the Internet, not to mention the popularity of text-messaging on cell phones, we may well be reading more today than we did in the 1970s or 1980s, when television was our medium of choice. But the machine had a subtler effect on his work. Also see:
