Research themes

In the field of Technology Enhanced Learning, study of the uses of Dynamic Geometry for the teaching and the learning of mathematics. These Dynamic Geometry environments constitute a rich field to develop mathematic education research. They can be studied as a special case of technologies, whose added value to the teaching and the learning of mathematics has to be identified. They are also representative of learning technologies that enable to study more general questions like the quality of teaching resources and the teachers professional development regarding ICT.


Current projects

  • Program for the Development of the Scientific Culture in the Côte d'Or Department: innovative scientific approachs and practices for the pupils from nursery school to secondary school.
  • Dynamic Mathematics at Primary School: design of resources to teach mathematics with technologies at primary school.
  • A Suitcase Gathering Mathematical Resources for School (3 to 10 year old pupils): a project supported by the French Ministry of Education to enhance access to existing resources, to design new resources and to improve teacher education.
  • Pairform@nce, a research project about the national Pairform@nce program for the in-service teachers education in technologies.

Completed projects

  • Mathematical modelling of variable phenomena, using dynamic geometry, teaching perspective: project supported by the Rhône Alpes regional council, in collaboration with the DIAM team of the LIG laboratory of Grenoble.
  • Intergeo: European Projet of the eContentplus program concerning the sharing of Dynamic Geometry resources to teach mathematics.
