Abstract

It is evident that it is not easy to determine the multiple components and facets which a learner could have in a classic class situation considering the complexity, the character and diversity of such situations. However, on the basis of a didactic theoretical framework which illustrates the relations between a learner and technologies used in class, we will try to “remodelise” it so that we can set up pedagogies which take into account this main actor of the educational system; the learner. Research that we carried out left the observation that many teachers converted with new technologies propose strategies including the use of the computer. Information and communication technology (ICT) invades the classes and is essential as an instrument “supporting” the lesson as well as the school learning. The objective of this work is to see what this learner has become? And to what extent he tends to change and adapt himself to the renewal of the institution in which he is actor. This is why we asked 145 students in engineering to express themselves, on the basis of a questionnaire, on the vision which they have of their statute in this system where ICT start to become omnipresent. The results are revealing a situation where the learners have to be reconsidered as central in the teaching-learning process.

Key words: ICT, students in engineering, Tunisia.
