The project Listen Read the World brings together French-speaking students from all over around the same story so that they can discuss and share their appreciation while learning about technology. This year, more than 120 classes are already registered!

In short, two French-language books are chosen at the start of the year and the participating classes (from preschool to the end of secondary school) undertake to read them aloud, at the rate of a few chapters per week, and to digitally record their appreciation. and comments. They then share them in a common online space (in the form of a wiki), allowing everyone to read them.

The weekly reading appreciation report can be done in different formats, at the choice of the participants: directly by writing on the wiki, on a class or personal blog, or other written, oral or video means such as voicethread, glogster, skype, podcast, etc.

To participate, he just register to receive information and updates by email. Moreover, the objective of the 2013 edition has already been reached with more than 120 classes registered even before the official start of the school year.

The project will officially begin in the fall on a date chosen by registrants, leaving the first few weeks of the year to choose how to digitally record ratings.

As specified on the project site, “there is no minimum expectation from other classes, each going at their own pace and according to the needs of their students. "The teacher François Bourdon explains his general way of proceeding:" Personally, I will read aloud every day to my students. When reading, we take a little extra time to work on the text. We will anticipate, we will dig deeper, and then we will start to think and analyze. My students will blog or tweet about their predictions and thoughts using excerpts from the book. "
