L’attention des élèves en classe : utiliser la métacognition pour une amélioration

Abstract : Christophe Boujon showed the importance of attention in learning. The abilities of this cognitive function would be proportional to school success. So, it seems essential for a teacher to captivate the attention of his pupils. Professionals of education use different educational strategies, such as injunctive sentences, to try to focus the attention of their pupils. But are they effective? Would it not be more relevant to educate children on their attention, so that they become mindful of their behaviors, and thus improve their attentional performance? Research in psychology and neuroscience has developed in this field in recent years. Thus, the use of metacognition seems to have positive impacts on cognitive remedies, especially on the different attention. This memory will therefore goal to answer the following question: Is it possible to improve the attentional abilities of 1st grade pupils by using metacognition with them? For that, two hypotheses will be studied. These last tend to be validated. Thus, the metacognition makes it possible to be able to improve the pupils' attention. Although not all attention is equitably impacted, the results point to promising prospects.
