For a renewed academy industry research partnership
The joint venture between the academic research on learning technology and industry along the past decade shares similarity with the gold rush: great effort for a too small outcome. From all the energy spent, “acadustry” has emerged; a chimerical community of practice, merging academic and industry objectives and traditions. The relevance and fruitfulness of this new community is questionable. This presentation will suggest revisiting the orientation of the eLearning research policy, taking

Understanding the structure of the set of rational numbers: a conceptual change approach.
In the present article, we argue that the conceptual change approach to learning can apply in the case of mathematics, taking into consideration the particular nature of mathematical knowledge and the neurobiological bases of mathematical cognition. In the empirical study that is reported in this article, we investigated ninth graders' understanding of algebraic and structural properties of rational numbers, from a conceptual change perspective. We make the point that understanding rational numb

Geospatially aware social software and Africa
We present a proposal for the development and implementation of a group of tools that will support the collection and sharing of georeferenced information. Locations such as rural Africa suffer from a technical problem hampering their participation in the global information community: infrastructures and terminals for Internet access are non-existent or of poor quality. We believe that cell-phone software can be leveraged as a way to bridge this. One important contribution that local communities

Faits comme des rats

Faits comme des rats

Documentaire de 52 minutes qui présente l'expérience des rats plongeurs, mise en œuvre par Didier DESOR (Nancy-Université )
L'expérience des rats plongeurs fascine parce qu'elle nous renvoie à notre comportement et nous interpelle.
Pourquoi certains rats plongent-ils pour aller chercher leur nourriture alors que d'autres se contentent de la leur "voler" ?

L'agroforesterie marqueur du paysage kéralais

Le Kerala est un État du sud-ouest de la péninsule indienne, entre mer et montagne, de près de 820 habitants au km². Il est caractérisé par une occupation traditionnelle du sol et des paysages de type agroforestier : autour d’un habitat essentiellement dispersé, les keralais ont aménagé l’étagement, sur de petites superficies, de systèmes productifs cumulant des cultures au sol (tubercules, manioc, maraîchage…) et des cultures arborées (bois d’œuvre, épices, cocotiers

Biodiversité : comment gérer notre interaction avec l'écosystème

Cet entretien avec Françoise Burel, directrice de recherche au CNRS, traite de la biodiversité : des éléments qui la composent, de leurs interactions, des menaces qui pèsent sur elle et des actions qui peuvent être menées pour sa conservation. Françoise Burel appréhende la biodiversité comme ressource à l’échelle planétaire, mais elle s’intéresse aussi aux écosystèmes plus petits. Elle évoque notamment la place de l’homme dans le monde vivant, l’évolution et la dive
