Compétences : chercheurs et praticiens parlent-ils de la même chose La question des compétences dans la scolarité obligatoire en France fait apparaître un décalage significatif entre la reconnaissance officielle de la notion dans le socle commun, son succès relatif auprès de nombreux enseignants et acteurs éducatifs et le faible intérêt que lui porte la recherche en éducation. Il y a en effet bien peu de travaux de recherche sur la question des compétences dans l’enseignement en France. Une requête sur Google Scholar avec les termes « compétence éducation » montre que l’écrasante majorité des travaux cités émane d’auteurs canadiens, belges ou suisses. Au delà de ce constat élémentaire, on peut surtout s’interroger sur la différence entre l’usage du terme par les acteurs éducatifs et sa perception par les chercheurs. Les compétences investies par les acteurs de l’éducation En France, une grande part des acteurs éducatifs qui ont tenté d’explorer ce qu’on recouvre par l’approche par compétences ne l’a pas fait pour obéir à des injonctions ministérielles.

Symptoms | What is Autism? What Are the Symptoms of Autism? Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors. However, symptoms and their severity vary widely across these three core areas. As illustrated by the graph below, the basic symptoms of autism are often accompanied by other medical conditions and challenges. While autism is usually a life-long condition, all children and adults benefit from interventions, or therapies, that can reduce symptoms and increase skills and abilities. Social Challenges Typically developing infants are social by nature. Research suggests that children with autism are attached to their parents. Many persons with autism have similar difficulty seeing things from another person's perspective. It is common – but not universal – for those with autism to have difficulty regulating emotions. back to top Communication Difficulties Repetitive Behaviors Associated Medical Conditions

Qu’apportent les compétences au socle commun La notion de compétence est une innovation officiellement introduite à la faveur du socle commun. Pour beaucoup d’acteurs éducatifs, elle a permis de faire bouger les pratiques dans un système sclérosé. Pour d’autres, la compétence est un repoussoir qui cristallise toutes leurs craintes : notion compliquée à mettre en œuvre et à évaluer, qui dilue les disciplines. Olivier Rey * fait le point. Il faut reconnaître que, depuis 2006, les hésitations de certains ministères à mettre en œuvre le socle commun n’ont pas simplifié l’appropriation de cette démarche. S’assurer que tous les objectifs de l’éducation sont poursuivis La première vertu des compétences réside dans leur utilisation comme vecteur de modification des contenus d’enseignement. Le premier objectif est bien assimilé car il correspond à la façon traditionnelle dont s’est organisée la transmission des connaissances à travers les disciplines scolaires. La culture au fronton du socle : pour quelle signification ? Olivier Rey

What's changed - - The Australian Curriculum v8.0 Revisions have been made to the previously available Australian Curriculum to make the curriculum easier to manage, particularly for primary schools, to simplify the curriculum’s presentation and to strengthen the focus on literacy. To achieve this: The volume of content in learning areas has been reduced by deleting, clarifying and simplifying content descriptions, where appropriate, and moving references to examples to the content elaborations. This has improved clarity of content descriptions and has resulted in an overall reduction in the number of content descriptions in the curriculum.A single Foundation – Years 6/7 Humanities and Social Sciences learning area replaces the History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, and Economics and Business subjects at these year levels. The Tracked changes for Foundation – Year 10 Australian Curriculum document (PDF 2.9 mb) is available on the Australian Curriculum website.
