De la conception à l’usage d’un jeu sérieux de génie mécanique : phénomènes de transposition didactique dans l’enseignement secondaire et universitaire : le cas de Mecagenius®

Abstract : This thesis, as part of a multidisciplinary research project financed by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Employment, examines the process of educational systems using a serious game dedicated to mechanical engineering called Mecagenius® in schools and universities. The study partly contributed to produce engineering tools of that serious game and explore how students and teachers used it in high school, IUT and university classes. The design and evaluation process relied on three related studies based on epistemological, cognitive and didactic programs. The findings report on the didactic use of Mecagenius® in regular classes and identify individualized learning strategies implemented by students according to their contrasting level of excellence in the classroom. The research highlighted differences in the way teachers integrated the artifact to their teaching methods ranging from transmissive to specific forms of instrumental genesis allowing them over the interactions with students, to use the serious game in ways that are nearly consistent with the educational choices that led to its design. Concerning students, the results showed different strategies that could help high skilled students in acquiring specific skills on Mechanical Engineering but could not help the weakest ones to go through the learning obstacles encountered in the game. The conclusion is about ways to train and support teachers with use of serious games in classroom.
