The new technologies of information and communication are revolutionizing our daily lives: when we organize a trip, when we communicate with our loved ones when we reserve a ticket to a show, when we seek the definition of a difficult concept … the list is endless. Does this change also disrupts our relationship with knowledge, the way we learn and impart knowledge
The aim of this conference is to give an account of what we know today about the contributions, limitations and dangers of new technologies as a means of access to knowledge.
André Tricot, who are you?
I am a researcher and I also trains teachers for nearly twenty years, first in Britain, now in Midi-Pyrénées. In particular, I try to help teachers understand how students learn and the challenges facing them. I try to share my knowledge about the solutions offered by new technologies to improve student learning.
What are the main themes of your speech?
I will propose to discuss some of the myths that we often hear about the digital and not necessarily verified. For each, I will try to take stock of what we know and what we do not know. Examples of these statements: are more motivated when learning with digital; we learn better by playing with digital; digital fosters student autonomy; reading on small screen reading skills and attention span of young people; students know effectively use digital because it’s their generation.
