Aide à la recherche d'informations sur support hypermédia et production écrite par de jeunes rédacteurs

Abstract : This experiment analyses a computer-based system designed to help 5 grade pupils produce argumentative texts. Such texts contain arguments supporting opposite points of view, and numerous data from previous studies show that young children have difficulties to find and to coordinate them. In the present investigation, the information retrieval activity was facilitated by using a hypermedia database. Moreover, the information retrieval phase was distinct from the text production phase, so that writers could concentrate their attention on each of these activities. Finally, two conditions for information retrieval (by copying the information selected on a sheet of paper or on a computer file) were studied. The analysis of the way children control their text production took into account their reading abilities. Results show that this computer based system has some supportive effects, especially for less advanced readers. But it is not only the hypermedia database that is helpful to find relevant arguments. The way pupils store arguments has a major effect on the retrieval of ideas and on writing strategies developed afterward, and it seems decisive to take these conditions into consideration.
