Evaluation expérimentale et longitudinale d’une application éducative visant le développement des compétences en littératie et en numératie émergentes

Abstract : This thesis has two objectives. The first consists of assessing the effectiveness of an educational intervention implemented on tablets in the classroom context to students' learning in early literacy and early numeracy. The second objective examines the synchronic and diachronic relationships between early literacy and early numeracy. This work belongs to the LINUMEN project (LIttératie et NUMératie Emergentes par le Numérique), laureate of the e-FRAN call for projects (PIA2). During the first two years of the project (March 2017-October 2018) a multidisciplinary team made up of researchers, educational actors and computer engineers were involved in the co-design of the educational application AppLINOU (Apprendre avec Linou en maternelle). The experimentation phase of this intervention (October 2018 - June 2020) tested AppLINOU with a quasi-experimental and longitudinal methodology. Students in the experimental group used AppLINOU for several weeks. In the control group, students followed the kindergarten curriculum without any modifications or instructions for teachers. The study involved 725 kindergarten students, enrolled in pre-kindergarten (356 girls and 369 boys). Measures of early literacy and early skills were conducted at the beginning and end of the year. Multilevel regressions analyses showed that the children in the experimental group enrolled in schools outside priority education networks performed better at the end of the year than the others. Elements that explain the partial effects of the intervention are discussed and ways of improvement are mentioned. In addition, lead models have examined the synchronic and diachronic links between early literacy and numeracy. Different models tested highlight the influence of early literacy on early numeracy at this educational level. As part of this research, an initial version of an educational application was developed (AppLINOU). The preliminary results encourage us to continue the iterative development of this tool. Therefore, we are pursuing our initial objective to obtain an improved version of the application that could be deployed and used on a larger scale in middle and large kindergarten classes.
