Is a Twictée just a dictation on Twitter? It’s much more than that. A short text of 280 characters – the format of messages on the social network – containing grammatical or spelling “traps” is written by teachers.

This support is used like a classic dictation: the students write it individually, discuss in groups to track down mistakes and correct it in class with the teacher.

The social network Twitter then makes it possible to exchange with other classes around the text, by proposing in particular “twoutils”, orthographic and grammatical rules making it possible not to repeat a mistake, and tweet them to their correspondents. Example: “Reddish is written with a â because this adjective is composed of red + the suffix hearth which means” not quite “. “

Why does it work?

The system appeals to more than 400 teachers, from CP to high school. It is based in particular on repetition which facilitates memorization and automation. Students favor the tool because it is collaborative, that the themes appeal to them (witches, Christmas in London…) And that it allows them to interact with other students.

Teachers appreciate “To enlarge the master room”, testifies Marie-Pierre Bernadac, who has been tweeting for eight years with her CM2 from the school of Coatréven, near Lannion. “We are banking on collective intelligence”, bounces Fabien Hobart, secretary and founder of the Twictée association which gathers a seminar of fifteen teachers in Coatréven, on July 10 and 11, to prepare the eighth season.
