When we think of oral communication, we mainly think of interaction situations in oral communication, that is to say of the peculiarities of spontaneous speaking, prepared speaking (in relation to listening) and spontaneous listening and prepared listening (in relation to speaking). During the interview, Julie Noël explains that there are many possible nuances, for example, a spontaneous speech slightly prepared! She also recalls the close link between the development of oral communication and that of social skills. 

To teach it, of course, you have to plan, but it is also possible to have recourse to various contexts, for example a group work in mathematics where the pupils must take turns speaking and exchanging in order to reach a consensus. . In this case, the teacher could choose to listen specifically to one or two groups per session.

Digital technology for the development and assessment of oral skills

Julie Noël quotes researcher Christian Dumais in his book Teaching oral is possible, which thus defines the 3 stages of the teaching of oral communication: the teaching point, the practice and the regulation. For her, digital is particularly interesting as a tool in each of these times. Moreover, she talks about different uses, for example the programming of Blue-Bot robots to give clear instructions and the production of podcasts to get the best of more shy students in front of a group. She explains how digital can also be beneficial at the level of assessment, since oral communication is something ephemeral.  

Finally, she offers the following resources in addition to the projects to which she refers during the interview. 

The Blue-Bot robot to make a path towards better oral communication:

  1. Preparation
  2. Production
  3. Integration

Expo science 2.0 - Multimodal digital literacy project:

  1. Preparation
  2. Production
  3. Integration

Literature and digital use:

  1. Preparation
