L’utilisation du jeu pour apprendre en classe d’Histoire, de Géographie et d’Enseignement Moral et Civique

Abstract : Whether it be for learning life lessons and skills or pure entertainment, since Antiquity, play is a part of every steps of life. Since the 1900s educational leaders, psychologist and teachers are showing a growing interest in play as an educational tool. New pedagogy methods foster skill based learning with the child a center piece of their own learning and no longer simple retaining of knowledge and facts. Moreover, they investigate the impact of games, video or board games, in the students' involvement and motivation in school. So this study demonstrate the impact that play can have on Sixth grade students learning process whether it be in their learning in a specific subject or their overall involvement. Through the creation and use of a question/answer type game in History-Geography-Ethics and Civic classes we will demonstrate that the main source of motivation for the student comes from building something and having a more concrete, practical way to give sense to their learning. This way students fostered a growth mindset, personal development and skills such as self confidence or confidence in their own abilities. Therefore play can be an educational tool contributing to the development of children and teenagers.
