CARTES CONCEPTUELLES ET FORMATION DES ENSEIGNANTS DU PRIMAIRE. LE CAS DE LA VISION DANS L’OPTIQUE GÉOMÉTRIQUE / CONCEPT MAPS AND PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHERS TRAINING. THE CASE OF THE VISION IN GEOMETRICAL OPTICS

Abstract


Dans cet article est présentée une recherche sur l'utilisation des cartes conceptuelles pour la transformation des représentations mentales de 32 futurs enseignants du phénomène de la vision dans le modèle de l’optique géométrique. Les données empiriques ont été recueillies à travers un entretien à l’aide d’une discussion ouverte avant et après une intervention didactique et une carte conceptuelle de chaque enseignant. Les résultats de la recherche montrent que les cartes conceptuelles permettent le progrès cognitif des apprenants et constituent un outil approprié pour une intervention didactique systématique sur la vision.

In this article is presented a research on the use of concept maps on the transformation of mental representations of 32 future teachers for the phenomenon of vision in geometrical optics model. The empirical data were collected through an interview with an open discussion before and after an educational intervention and a conceptual map of each teacher. The research results show that concept maps allow the cognitive progress of learners and are a suitable tool for systematic didactic intervention on the vision.
