A Computational Approach to the Discovery and Representation of Lexical Chunks
Lexical chunks have in recent years become widely recognized as a crucial aspect of second language competence. We address two major sorts of challenge that chunks pose for lexicography and describe computational approaches to addressing these challenges. The first challenge is lexical knowledge discovery, that is, the need to uncover which strings of words constitute chunks worthy of learners attention. The second challenge is the problem of representation, that is, how such knowledge can be
Une aide à l'interprétation de traces : application à l'amélioration de scénarios pédagogiqu
Nous nous intéressons dans cet article à l'observation au sein d'un EIAH. Notre objectif est de comprendre le comportement des apprenants et, à plus long terme, d'améliorer les scénarios pédagogiques. Dans un premier temps, nous montrons comment récupérer des observations depuis différentes sources. Dans un second temps, nous proposons une méthode permettant de composer une trace à partir de ces observations. Cette trace reflète l'activité de l'apprenant et servira de base à l'inte
Vers des aides logicielles à la compréhension de textes documentaires scientifiques pour les élè
La compréhension d'un texte documentaire par cent vingt élèves du CM2 (5e année primaire) a été évaluée dans quatre conditions expérimentales, en faisant varier d'une part le type de notes d'aide (notes explicitant la « base de texte » vs. notes aidant à construire le « modèle de situation »), d'autre part le support (présentation sur papier vs. présentation hypertextuelle sur ordinateur). La condition où des notes « modèle de situation » sont proposées sur écran d'ordinat
Between arithmetic and algebra : a space for the spreadsheet ? Contribution to an instrumental appro
In this research work, we have a didactical look on the integration of a computer tool into mathematics teaching: the spreadsheet. We have related research about spreadsheet to an instrumental approach perceived as essential to analyze the questions of technological integration. This approach allowed us to extend to this technology the theoretical framework of instrumentation. These theoretical elements are being used in the analysis of the professional resources and the teaching practices, in o
