Dispositifs socio-techniques et mondes persistants : quelles médiations pour quelle communication dans un contexte situé ?

Abstract : This institutional research was conducted with one main purpose : identify the building mecanisms of a new situation of communication within virtual environment like persistent worlds (Second Lire) in an e-leaming situated context. The study explores the concepts of communicational artifact as symbolic place of representations and construction of a new reality. We favour a pragmatic point of view of the communication by using the four mediations approach and the study of the fonctional interactivies regarding human-human communication and social interactions in our context. Our hypothesis concern firstly the perception of a kind of materialization of the situation of communication, and secondly the possible social role of the projections of the users : the avatars.The methodology consists of a communicational analysis of analogic signals like gestuelle and proxemic practices in those spatials environments populated by avatars caracterized by users. Our findings : The caracterization of the avatar plays a part in the social rites and the group identity construction. The possibility for the users to choose differents points of views (centered or off-centered) of the avatar allows them to be spectators-actors of the situation of communication. The result of the study indicated that ;The constant alternation of points of views generates in the mean time liberties and inconveniences for the users which modify the distanciation of the subject with his object, and as an episteniological consequence, lead to a kind of circularity in this process.
