Algorithms, big data, big data ... these phenomena are often misunderstood. On the occasion of CréaCamp Lévis during which Marjorie was a facilitator around the theme The recipe for algorithms, the participants went through the same process of ethical reflection that we try to make the students experience: they understood that to understand the impact of algorithms in our life, we must first understand the phenomenon.

In this interview, Marjorie underlines that the real challenge for school workers is to adopt a posture that will lead the learner to engage in ethical reflection in order to understand the phenomena linked to digital technology, then to make him autonomous. in relation to decisions and solutions to consider.

The process of ethical empowerment

In in addition to digital competence, literacy, creativity and critical thinking, ethical thinking is one of the cognitive abilities of the theoretical model Ethical empowerment process developed by the RÉCIT team. Can be used in different contexts, ethical reflection is a simple process that requires:

  • Become aware of a situation and draw an overall portrait of it with the most neutral gaze possible;
  • identify different points of view regarding this situation;
  • identify the values, principles and norms that underpin these views;
  • identify possible options;
  • make choices or take actions that promote living together.

“We do not want competent individuals with digital technology who take actions to the detriment of others; we want individuals who are able to take into account the citizenship aspect and act with empathy, openness and solidarity ” - Marjorie Paradis

We invite you to listen to the interview to hear Marjorie about a process that allows learners to make choices, make informed decisions and consider solutions that contribute to living together.
