Proximal vs distal, par Greg Ashman (en anglais)

It can be hard to cut through education research because there is such a great volume of it, most of which is not very helpful. So it’s useful to have some heuristics to fall back on. I have a few that I can recommend.

Firstly, I would ignore anything excessively jargon laden or that mentions French philosophers in its abstract. Such papers are unlikely to offer much to a practising teacher. I’ve picked my way through a number of them now and if there is a point to them, it tends to be quite trivial.

If the paper involves an experiment then take a look at the methods section. Surprisingly often this will have a great big hole in it. For instance, the control and experimental groups might be different.

However, I’m starting to think that there is something even more important to look for. Any intervention should have a plausible mechanism. The writers of the paper need to be able to give a good account of how their intervention works. This is important for evaluating the results of any statistical tests because it relates to the ‘baseline’ probability: something that is never measured by the experiment itself.

J'adore le Firstly, I would ignore anything excessively jargon laden or that mentions French philosophers in its abstract.

Pour les non anglophones, l'article discute de la sélection des articles de recherches en sciences de l'éducation et parmi les critères de la distance entre une intervention et son effet souhaité (comme par exemple l'amélioration de l'apprentissage de la lecture par la pratique de la chiropraxie).

Assurbanipal: "Passant, mange, bois, divertis-toi ; tout le reste n’est rien".

Franck Ramus : "Les sciences de l'éducation à la française se font fort de produire un discours savant sur l'éducation, mais ce serait visiblement trop leur demander que de mettre leur discours à l'épreuve des faits".

Précisons que ni Montaigne, ni Descartes, ni Malebranche, ni Maine de Biran ne sont spécialement visés (Deleuze, Derrida, Foucault, Baudrillard, Lyotard, etc., bref la fameuse french theory, en revanche, si).

'Tis a blushing, shamefaced spirit that mutinies in a man’s bosom. It fills a man full of obstacles. It made me once restore a purse of gold that by chance I found. It beggars any man that keeps it. It is turned out of towns and cities for a dangerous thing, and every man that means to live well endeavors to trust to himself and live without it.

When everybody is swept away unthinkingly by what everybody else does and believes in, those who think are drawn out of hiding because their refusal to join is conspicuous and thereby becomes a kind of action.
