"Sommes nous condamnés à apprendre tout au long de la vie ? Comment développer notre Environnement Personnel d’Apprentissage et de Développement dans un contexte numérique ? Collaborer n’est-ce pas une composante essentielle de l’apprendre enrichie par les outils numériques ?
A partir des aptitudes initiales de l’enfant à apprendre, à collaborer, à s’organiser, les moyens numériques offrent de nouvelles opportunités de développement de chacun. Or le système scolaire, marqué par l’empreinte du livre et de la forme scolaire, semble s’opposer aux deux dynamiques, celle du développement propre de l’enfant et l’envahissement progressif de la sphère sociale par le numérique.
