Get Pédagogie de l'activité : pour une nouvelle classe inversée: PDF

By TAURISSON Alain,HERVIOU Claire

Les expériences de « classe inversée » apparaissent aujourd’hui prometteuses. Alors que, dans les « periods traditionnelles », on « fait cours » à l’École avant d’envoyer les élèves « travailler » chez eux, dans les « periods inversées », le professeur suggest aux élèves de prendre connaissance d’un exposé enregistré ou d’une séquence illustrée puis les accueille en classe pour répondre à leurs questions et les accompagner dans l. a. réalisation d’exercices ou de projets… On comprend que ce modèle pédagogique soit particulièrement attractif : à l’ère du numérique, au second où tant de ressources documentaires sont disponibles, le professeur voit ainsi son rôle renouvelé et peut se consacrer pleinement à l’appropriation des connaissances.
Mais il ne faut pas, pour autant, basculer dans l. a. naïveté spontanéiste. Prendre connaissance d’une details ou regarder une vidéo pour en tirer quelques enseignements ne vont pas de soi et le risque existe que beaucoup d’élèves n’en profitent guère. De même, interroger le professeur pour mieux comprendre un phénomène, faire un exercice de manière autonome ou travailler en petits groupes pour résoudre un problème ne sont pas des comportements faciles à mettre en oeuvre. Être intellectuellement actif, s’engager dans un travail et le mener à bien ne se décrète pas, cela se forme.
Et, précisément, l’ouvrage d’Alain Taurisson et de Claire Herviou nous montre remark faire. Prenant appui sur des travaux scientifiques éprouvés et des expérimentations solides, présentant les références théoriques nécessaires et donnant de très nombreux exemples d’outils utilisables, les auteurs fondent une véritable « pédagogie de l’activité », garantissant pleinement l’engagement de chaque élève tant dans l. a. prise d’information que dans l’assimilation et le réinvestissement des connaissances. Ils font ainsi de los angeles « classe inversée » une véritable « pédagogie replacement ». Au provider de los angeles réussite de toutes et tous. Et pour retrouver le bonheur d’enseigner…

By Carolin Duhme

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Schulpädagogik, be aware: 1,3, Universität Koblenz-Landau (Institut für Musikwissenschaft und Musikpädagogik), Veranstaltung: Musikpädagogik, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Um der Chancengleichheit gerecht zu werden und die grundsätzlichen positiven Aspekte des Singens zu nutzen, wird ein mögliches Konzept verpflichtender Chorklassen im Klassenverband zusätzlich zum regulären Musikunterricht erörtert. Als Ziel wird eine einheitliche Bildungssprache angestrebt, basierend auf der Idee, dass die SuS durch die übergreifenden Kompetenzen Sprache und Musik erfahren und dadurch ihre sprachlichen Fähigkeiten durch das Klassenmusizieren erweitern.

Hierzu werden zunächst die sprachlichen Anforderungen im Fach Deutsch – insbesondere im Anfangsunterricht – erörtert. Anschließend wird durch theoretische und geschichtliche Zusammenhänge der Stellenwert des Singens in der modernen Musikpädagogik dargestellt, wobei besonders die heutigen Bildungsstandards der SuS berücksichtigt werden. Anhand dieser Ansätze werden die Vorzüge einer Chorklasse hervorgehoben, an einer exemplarischen Stunde aufbereitet und eine mögliche Umsetzung des Konzeptes von Musik und Sprachförderung gezeigt.
