Quel rôle pour les ressources vidéos en ligne dans une perspective actionnelle de l'apprentissage des langues ?

Dans le cadre du module 'Analyse de Ressources Pédagogiques Multimédias' du Master AIGEME, les étudiants s’interrogent sur l'apport pédagogique de la vidéo. Certains travaux, d'une qualité particulièrement élevée, ont été sélectionnés pour figurer dans la base de données MEDEA. Extrait de l'introduction :
"J'ai choisi de présenter ici deux ressources en Français Langue Etrangère qui, sans constituer nécessairement des tâches à part entière, me semblent néanmoins être intéressantes dans le cadre de cette réflexion dans la mesure où elles contribuent par la vidéo à la mise en scène du contexte d'utilisation de la langue cible. Il s'agit de deux ressources ayant pour objectif de préparer les étudiants étrangers aux études en France. Les activités sont donc une préparation aux tâches qu'auront à accomplir les étudiants pendant leurs études en France. Je propose dans cette analyse d'étudier les fonctions des vidéos utilisées et les choix opérés par les équipes de réalisation, notamment les choix effectués entre documents authentiques et pédagogisés (« pédagogisés » : créés dans un but pédagogique). Ceci permettra de voir en quoi ces vidéos ressortissent éventuellement à une approche actionnelle de l'apprentissage des langues."
