Inter.Connect.Ed Comment développer les compétences transversales ? Il est intéressant de faire le point sur la structure de notre formation. Actuellement, nous cherchons à développer des compétences transversales, regroupées sous 2 chapitres : s’ouvrir aux autres et apprendre à apprendre. Comment structurer une formation pour intégrer ces compétences ? Voici notre réponse sous forme d’un modèle centrés sur ‘les apprenants’. Depuis un moment, nous cherchons à faire évoluer notre formation afin de développer chez nos étudiants les compétences transversales dont ils auront besoin dans leur cursus professionnel. 1 – Quelles compétences développer ? Une première piste part du constat que nous formons des étudiants à des métiers qui n’existent pas encore. Par ailleurs, on peut chercher du côté de l’entreprise quelles sont les compétences qui sont le plus recherchées. 2 – Comment développer ces compétences ? Cela semble partir dans deux directions : Afin de synthétiser cela, voici un schéma qui représente notre approche pédagogique 3 – Critique du modèle

It's Not All Flowers and Sausages Literacy and Essential Skills: Why Digital Literacy is Crucial The Guardian recently published an article called “No place in class for digital illiterates“. The article talks about how children who lack technology literacy skills are getting left behind. Writer Gavin Dudeney talks about changing definitions of literacy that now include “digital literacy” or the ability to use the Internet and interact with digital texts. As I was writing The Need For Increased Integration of Technology and Digital Skills in the Literacy Field in Canada I found research that suggests that Canada’s 9 Literacy and Essential Skills may be just the beginning. People need to know how to search for everyday information such as bus schedules, tax information and other important information that is part of every day living.

As an educator, I worry about such approaches. Like this post? Like this: Like Loading...

First Steps The Myth of Learning Styles by Cedar Riener and Daniel Willingham There is no credible evidence that learning styles exist. While we will elaborate on this assertion, it is important to counteract the real harm that may be done by equivocating on the matter. What is a Learning Style? The claim at the center of learning-styles theory is this: Different students have different modes of learning, and their learning could be improved by matching one's teaching with that preferred learning mode. The most popular current conception of learning styles equates style with the preferred bodily sense through which one receives information, whether it be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (for some reason, no one claims that there are tactile or olfactory learners). As you will see, the claim that the mode of presentation should match the preferred mode of learning subsumes several other claims, and it is worth unpacking the learning-styles concept in order to consider its constituent subclaims separately.
