Apprendre pas a pas

Apprendre pas à pas est une ressource innovatrice interdisciplinaire pour les éducateurs du préscolaire, du primaire et du secondaire qui veulent permettre à leurs élèves d’apprendre en dehors des murs de l'école. Les marches éducatives proposées peuvent être réalisées dans n'importe quel contexte et permettent de développer le sentiment d’appartenance des élèves et d’enrichir leur compréhension des matières scolaires. Les 60 activités centrées sur la marche présentées dans cette ressource sont fondées sur les principes de l'éducation écologique imaginative. Elles sont conçues pour toucher les émotions et l’imagination des élèves dans une démarche d’éveil au lieu, à leur communauté naturelle et culturelle, et place leur questionnements au centre des apprentissages.

Dr Gillian Judson enseigne à la faculté déducation de l'Université Simon Fraser en Colombie-Britannique, au Canada, en plus d’être directrice administrative du Centre For Imagination In Research, Culture, And Education (CIRCE) (www.circesfu.ca).

L'Éducation en plein air

Apprendre et enseigner dehors en tous lieux et en toutes saisons

Comment enseigner dehors, et ce, en tous lieux et en toutes saisons?

Juliet Robertson s’adresse aux personnes enseignantes qui souhaitent faire vivre à leurs élèves de 4 à 12 ans des situations d’apprentissage riches et authentiques en plein air. En se basant sur sa grande expérience et sur la recherche, elle accompagne les personnes enseignantes qui souhaitent intégrer l’éducation en plein air à leurs pratiques et celles qui le font déjà et qui voudraient aller encore plus loin. Les bénéfices de cette approche sont nombreux : des effets positifs sur le bien-être des enfants, des apprentissages plus signifiants et durables, l’amélioration des habiletés sociales, le développement d’une citoyenneté responsable et peut-être même de l’amour envers la nature.

L’autrice propose un large éventail de situations d’apprentissage touchant le développement global et différentes disciplines scolaires. Ses nombreuses idées sont généralement simples et demandent un minimum de ressources. Leur mise en oeuvre peut se faire tout au long de l’année, que ce soit dans la cour d’école, un petit bois à proximité ou les espaces variés du quartier.

Elle présente également de nombreux conseils de gestion de groupe, offrant des solutions concrètes aux problèmes pratiques les plus fréquents. Cet ouvrage tout en couleurs, illustré de photographies inspirantes, sera un guide précieux pour les personnes enseignantes novices et expertes dans leurs pratiques d’éducation en plein air!
