Day 5: Workshop at the University of Liège : building a lesson with “Scenariogramme” ©

Brigitte DENIS - workshop at University of LiegeOn Friday March 14, the IP students went to the University of Liège to meet Brigitte DENIS, teacher and lecturer at the CRIFA (Centre de Recherche sur l’Instrumentation, la Formation et l’Apprentissage). She prepared a workshop about the added value of ICT and social media in teaching. During the first part, the students had to think keywords related to “a task”, “a tool” and “an added value”. During the second part, the students had to build a “Scenariogramme” © : this means linking lesson’s objectives, a methodology (including ICT and social media tools and strategies) and the evaluation of the learning outcomes (with the added value of the ICT and social media tools).

Day five : Using technology for teaching ?

What is a SWOT analysis” by Patrick DEJARNAC (teacher HELMo, Liège-Belgium)
Définition :
A SWOT analysis (alternatively SWOT Matrix) is a structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in a project or in a business venture. A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective. The technique is credited to Albert Humphrey, who led a convention at the Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) in the 1960s and 1970s using data from Fortune 500 companies. The degree to which the internal environment of the firm matches with the external environment is expressed by the concept of strategic fit. Source :

Days six/seven : What have we learn during this week ?

What have we learn during this week ? A « writing » note
During the week-end, the students will have to write an individual note on what they have learned during the first week of the IP and then they’ll have to share and publish it on the IP’s blog.


Orientation :
1° One element you have learn during this weeks. For next week, take the program and determine one element you will to learn next week.
2° Is the lectures and your works of this week sufficient to not be only on the wave, but to see under the wave to be able to adapt teaching at your generation and at the generation of your students and resolve the actually school (technology) limits ? How ? Why ? If your response is «no», what do you needs? How to obtain it? How to integrate it at your work?
3° What do you think about this sentence :
« A good lesson using technology is at first a good teaching lesson? »
and how you will integrate this dimension next week when you will have to build a lesson using ICT and social media tools (Monday/Tuesday) ?

Some questions you can have in your mind for your work :
One thing positive with this IP Generation Y confronting of your daily formation ?
One thing negative with this IP Generation Y confronting of your daily formation ?
ICT and Media tools : Which are the ICT advantages/disadvantages for the teacher ?
ICT and Media tools : Which are advantages/disadvantages for the students?
Which is the ICT and Media tools place in the lesson? How it can improve it ? When not ?
Which are the differences and similarities compare to old technologies (paper, blackboard, …) ?

How are you doing this work ?
You can write a note (google drive by exemple), doing a video, a prezi or something else and publish the link at a response to this post or respond directly to this post.

Day Four : “The use of social media in schools and in the learning system”

« The use of social media in schools : some examples » by Patrick Dejarnac (teacher at HELMo, Liège-Belgium)

The Twitter Experiment – Twitter in the Classroom, by Dr. Monica Rankin :

«Most educators would agree that large classes set in the auditorium-style classrooms limit teaching options to lecture, lecture, and more lecture. And most educators would also agree that this is not the most effective way to teach. I wanted to find a way to incorporate more student-centered learning techniques and involve the students more fully into the material.»

Dr. Monica Rankin

Facebook : “The use of Facebook with students in HELMo’s classes”, by Pascale PEREAUX (teacher at HELMo, Liège-Belgium)

Two questions to Pascale Pereaux :
1°) what about the students who don’t have a FB account?
2°) why doesn’t she want to be “friends” with her students while they’re studying but  she agrees when they’re graduated?

Here are her answers:
1°) students create a fake FB account just to follow the discussion
2°) to keep a sane pedagogical distance between teacher and students. This distance isn’t necessary anymore after graduation.

  1. Privacy
  2. Image rights : In public areas, no law prohibits taking pictures of someone, but it is forbidden to broadcast the picture ore someone without their permission. Difference between private person and public person. Difference between information and business publications. « If we can deduce that the person has agreed tacitly and if the picture represents the original context and is used for information », it’s okay.

  3. Copyright : concerning the owner’s image, object, buildings or something else you are publishing. Duration : 70 years after the death’s owner.

No law concerning retouch pictures. But in political uses (right or left), it’s an old history :


5 May 1920, Lénine in Moscou with Trotski and Kamenew on the steps


Later, Trotski and Kamenew are replaced by five wood steps.

For students’ IP, questions you have to know the answer :

  • Which are the rules in your country concerning the copyrights, the images rights and privacy in this cases?
  • Which are the schools rules concerning such an use in your classroom?

And what about copyright and teaching? Creative Commons is an interesting alternative to share resources into a public environment.
