L’utilisation du jeu en classe de langue vivante étrangère comme outil pédagogique à part entière. Impact et efficacité du jeu sur les apprentissages scolaires

Abstract : It is known that educational methods are always evolving in a way that would match the evolution of our society and our pupil’s needs. Consequently, we tend to expand our set of educational tools in order to offer more efficient teaching methods that would allow our pupils to further improve their skills. Playing is considered as an informal way to teach at school. This essay we will focus on the use of games as a tool in a learning environment, more specifically in Modern English Language lessons. We can prove difficult to draw a clear line between entertainment and learning when using games as a learning tool which is why we believe that it is essential to question their efficiency as well as their relevance in a classroom. The theoretical researches we led proved that the use of playful activities in class influences pupil’s motivation, oral participation and their ability to memorize. We conducted an experiment involving two groups of students equally able in average. One group was given a formal, more traditional activity while the other was given a game through which they could practice their skills. The results seem to show that playful activities can have a positive impact on learning processes if they are set appropriately and if goals are specifically outlined.
