  • 2nd edition of the SFERE-Provence conference

    30 and 31 March 2021 in Marseille

    Learning and educational policies. What interdisciplinarity, methodologies and international perspectives?

    This conference is supported by the Pôle d'Innovation, de Recherche, d'Enseignement pour l'Education d'Aix-Marseille (AMPIRIC) and financed within the framework of the 3rd Future Investment Programme (P.I.A. 3). It aims to improve the performance of students, particularly those with learning difficulties, by developing, experimenting and disseminating innovative pedagogical approaches through networking between research, training and teaching activities, with a view to breaking down disciplinary barriers.

    The educational policies and strategies defined as well as the methodological and interdisciplinary challenges related to these questions will be analysed through four axes: 1/ Contributions, limits and new challenges of educational research on fundamental learning, 2/ Between international educational strategies and national and local policies against inequalities: what responses from the actors?3/ Governance of innovation, transformation of pedagogy and teacher creativity, 4/ Collaborative or participatory teacher-researcher research: what positioning and competencies of the researcher and what contributions in terms of educational policies?

    The calls for papers for this colloquium, initially open until 31 March 2020, have been extended until 31 March 2010. July 31, 2020

  • International Research Symposium on the Didactics of Mathematics 2020 - Space and Geometry

    From 4 to 6 November 2020
    Site Inspé d'Aix-en-Provence, 2 avenue Jules Isaac, 13 100 Aix-en-Provence, France.

    The RDiMath2020 Symposium aims to present the latest work, to deepen certain theoretical questions and to open up new reflections, both on the approach to geometry itself and its link with the structuring of space, and on teaching in classrooms, the dissemination of resources, the use of different artefacts (digital or tangible) or teacher training in this field.

    The symposium is a continuation of meetings between geometry coursemakers organized over the past three years.

    The work of this symposium is organized according to different mechanisms which aim to..:

    • the study of different research sub-themes through conferences;
    • the dissemination of scientific news through posters;
    • discussion and exchanges through an organized questioning time.

    The proceedings of the RDiMaths2020 international symposium will be published.

Democratic education through the arts" In the framework of the programme "The creative gesture and the formative activity" (GCAF) of EA 4671 ADEF, the persons in charge of the programme "The creative gesture and the formative activity" (GCAF) of EA 4671 ADEF propose a call for papers for a third session entitled "Create to educate, in favour of school perseverance".

    General presentation
    Dropping out is a long process. It is often difficult to detect it before it is actually noticed. Academic factors are important, but they overlap with other family, social and personal factors (Blaya & Fortin, 2011; Bernard, 2019; Bruno, Félix & Saujat, 2017). The fight against dropping out of school has become a major issue in education policies in France and Europe (Verdier, 2019; Condat & Plumelle, 2003; Fazekas, 2011). The national plan against dropping out of school, launched at the start of the 2014 school year and the nationwide roll-out of "perseverance weeks" the following year (Circular No. 2015-085 of 3-6-2015), aims to mobilize educational teams, students and sometimes their parents, and thus enable dropouts to become involved in learning and to persevere. In addition, more and more research days are being held on this issue, and national and European projects are also being undertaken.
