Co-conception et acceptance des enseignants de maternelle d’une application éducative sur tablette

Abstract : This PhD work is part of the LINUMEN project (LIttératie et NUMératie Emergentes par le Numérique), laureate of the e-FRAN call for projects (PIA2). The objective of this project was to develop and test an educational app for children in the context of kindergarten. To do this, the work was divided into two phases: a first phase of co-design and a second phase of experimentation. During the first years of the project (March 2017 - October 2018) a multidisciplinary team consisting of researchers, educational actors and IT engineers participated in the co-design of the educational app called AppLINOU (Apprendre avec Linou en maternelle). The experimentation phase of this project (October 2018 - June 2020) consisted in testing AppLINOU according to a quasi-experimental and longitudinal methodology. The teachers in the experimental group used AppLINOU with their students, while in the control group, the teachers followed the usual kindergarten curriculum without any changes in their practice. The study involved 725 kindergarten students scholarized in ‘moyenne section’ (356 girls and 369 boys). Measures of emergent literacy and numeracy skills were taken at the beginning and end of the year.The objectives of this thesis are linked to these two phases. Concerning the co-design phase, the thesis goals were to first define the theoretical framework of co-design. In a second time, it was to participate, describe and analyze the different stages of co-design. Concerning the experimentation phase, the goals were to study the acceptance of the educational app AppLinou by the teachers of the experimental group. These teachers from the experimental group were recruited on a voluntary basis and received training to be able to use the application. Our results show that the AppLinou application is well accepted by teachers. However, there are variables that moderate this acceptance, such as the location of practice. Indeed, teachers working in a ‘Réseau d’éducation prioritaire’ (REP) have significantly lower acceptance scores than teachers working outside REPs. Furthermore, multilevel regression analyses showed that teachers' acceptance of the application had a positive impact on students' performance.
