  • 23. A change of paradigm in Education? • from transmission to transaction (cognitivism, constructivism and socio constructivism) • The teacher is an expert, but also a mediator between knowledge and student, a coach, an animator and creator of situations and activities. Sometimes a learner. He facilitates learnings. – The roles of the teacher may be distributed between several persons (teacher-contents author, teacher -lessons designer, tutor in charge of interactions with learners) • The learner is an active collaborator and the actor of his own traning, sometimes an expert. He participates to the construction of his own knowledge.
  • 24. A change of paradigm in Education? • Teaching is focused on the student’s learning and the development of skills • The organization is leaded by the situations, the organization is defined with a pedagogical scenario • Learners actively analyze information in a critical way through searching, solving problems and projects management • Learners transform information into knowledge and sense • Knowledge is a dynamic process and not a static thruth • The assessment is formative and not only summative • Contents are developped and shared in network

  • 26. ADAPTABILITY? Thank you!
