Quel rôle pour les ressources vidéos en ligne dans une perspective actionnelle de l'apprentissage des langues ?

Dans le cadre du module 'Analyse de Ressources Pédagogiques Multimédias' du Master AIGEME, les étudiants s’interrogent sur l'apport pédagogique de la vidéo. Certains travaux, d'une qualité particulièrement élevée, ont été sélectionnés pour figurer dans la base de données MEDEA. Extrait de l'introduction :
"J'ai choisi de présenter ici deux ressources en Français Langue Etrangère qui, sans constituer nécessairement des tâches à part entière, me semblent néanmoins être intéressantes dans le cadre de cette réflexion dans la mesure où elles contribuent par la vidéo à la mise en scène du contexte d'utilisation de la langue cible. Il s'agit de deux ressources ayant pour objectif de préparer les étudiants étrangers aux études en France. Les activités sont donc une préparation aux tâches qu'auront à accomplir les étudiants pendant leurs études en France. Je propose dans cette analyse d'étudier les fonctions des vidéos utilisées et les choix opérés par les équipes de réalisation, notamment les choix effectués entre documents authentiques et pédagogisés (« pédagogisés » : créés dans un but pédagogique). Ceci permettra de voir en quoi ces vidéos ressortissent éventuellement à une approche actionnelle de l'apprentissage des langues."

Cineclub - the young filmmakers network

Cineclub was launched in 2004 aiming to create a network of young filmmakers in the UK who create, watch and share films with each other. Cineclub's membership programme provides training and resources for teachers to set up film projects during curriculum time or as an out of school hours activity and the chance to share work publically at cinema venues across the year. As a sustainable and cost-effective model, more teachers are trained each year so the medium of film can broaden within the school curriculum. Cineclub aims to be as inclusive to as many schools as possible so their Gold membership model is just £395 for annual membership which includes training for 2 teachers and cinema screenings of the students work.


KlasCement is a Belgian web2.0 organisation for teachers. More than 60,000 teachers, mostly from Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium, and partly from the Netherlands are sharing learning objects online such as presentations,
courses, articles, sites and media files. Members of the community can make free use of these files for their lessons.
After a free registration, you can start searching for multimedia (http://www.klascement.net/multimedia/alles) looking around or using the powerful search engine; results can be filtered by educational level, subject, role, etc.

Divis Project

The Divis project (Digital video streaming and multilingualism) is a European funded Project that run from October 2008 to September 2010. It aims to encourage, motivate and equip both teacher trainers and practising language teachers to include video production in their teaching.
The official report of the project is available here:

Initial research was undertaken to establish how teachers feel about the use of video production and what skills and experience they had in this area. From the results of the research, the project team developed a online guide to address the teachers' needs, introducing creative and non-conventional teaching methods and samples to support implementation of video work in the classroom as well as providing technical support. The manual is available in many languages on the following webpage:

On the Divis project website, you can also find very good examples of usage of videos, photo stories, dramas, and television news in education. There is also a useful technical support section:
