La démarche scientifique pour enseigner l’esprit critique

Abstract : Critical thinking is now fully part of scholar programs. However it remains hardly mastered and too rarely taught. Yet, it is more than ever necessary to give young citizens tools to face information massification inherent to our society. The aim of this study is to explore a practical approach for critical thinking education, through the implementation of a scientific approach which will allow to distinguish between science and pseudoscience. In the particular context of remote teaching, the chapter has been adapted by using various digital tools. The starting point of the experimentation was a video showing a fallacious situation. Then, pupils were asked to build a scientific approach in order to verify whether the content of the video was true or not. Their successive critical or naive positions were observed in the course of the experimentation, showing how most of them became more critical.
