Under the name of WikiStage Chlef, an inspiring organizing team of youth gathered to provide a space for the most influential speakers in society.
The event will be organized by students of the École Normale Supérieure de Bou-Saada, aiming to change the fault ideas that all of us have about teaching.
The reason behind which we have chosen such a theme is mainly to answer the question in our mind when facing the crossroad of life after graduation.
For children to reach their full potential, the gains in universal primary education need to be replicated at the next level; only 54% of children in developing countries attend secondary school.
How can education systems be rebuilt to deliver their full potential in the 21st century?

"Je ne suis pas un expert de l'entrepreneuriat, ni un théoricien. Je suis juste un entrepreneur qui un jour a fait un rêve, s'est lancé et aujourd'hui accompagne la croissance de son entreprise avec son équipe."
"Il vous vous arriver des événements incroyables à partir du moment où vous allez décider de monter votre boîte."
"Lorsque vous lancez votre boîte, et surtout votre première boîte, vous allez devoir apprendre deux métiers à la fois. Le premier métier, c'est le premier, c'est le métier de l'entrepreneur. [...] Et ensuite, le métier de votre marché."

“The kind of learning that is required from us today as members of society and engineers is far more complicated and demanding than it was during the first industrial revolution. Today it carries a more human side – engineers have to think about the human aspect and not just technology. The kind of learning I want to talk to you about is human engineering.”
“Probably in your first or second year as math students, you learned you should break things apart. You should simplify things and rebuild things from the least common denominator. If you have a big problem, break it into smaller pieces so that you can manage a better solution. But then you graduate and you get into real life. Now you are part of an organization, a community, which might be your school, your neighborhood or your country. Then you are told it is not about you alone, it is about your community. You used to learn it is about smaller parts and you get into a part of your life when you see that it is about the whole. “
“You are not just engineering your life; you are engineering the lives of those around you. “
“What is a vision? We always say a country needs a vision, a company needs a vision. And we always say we don’t have leadership, we don’t have good leaders. Perhaps the problem isn’t that we don’t have good leaders, the problem is that the vision is not a communal vision. We are always said that we need to be the best in order to succeed. The steps we are required to make to be better than others force us to think about ourselves first; contradicting what is required from us to succeed in life. And then we wonder why we don’t have leaders who can provide a vision. “
“When you learn how to learn, we all become the learning organization. “
“If I get better alone and I look behind me, there is no one that can benefit from my getting together. I create an intellectual gap.”
“You are the first generation that is being told that the school is not enough. “
“We are the generation that was told, get up to the top, be the best and then send the elevator down so that the next person in line can take it. We don’t want the elevator that goes up and down anymore, we want elevators that go horizontally. The best thing you can do is share your knowledge.“

Learning from others is a very important question nowadays. Let’s take the situation of the world as it is. It is called postcolonial world. What does it mean to say that our world is considered postcolonial? It means that learning does not come from one single culture or language. One easy way of characterizing the colonial situation is to say that you have, in a colonial situation, some kind of imperial language which is supposed to be the language of the learning, the language of the beautiful, the language of truth, etc.
Everybody else needs to learn that language, as it is the imperial language, the language of the truth. To say that we are in a world which is postcolonial is that you have total equivalence of culture and languages. And this is a situation in which one can say that you can learn god knows what from god knows who. In other words, learning becomes a radically symmetrical situation encounter. You learn in a symmetrical situation that encounter is learning, in other words encounter is truth. In other words, you are able to step out of your comfort zone, your understanding, your own perspective of the world in order to embrace a different perspective.
If you are precisely in a situation of understanding what it means that one language in the world is one language among others, one language among other equivalent languages. And, this is why this world is both plural, really diverse world, and also one world. And, hopefully, having such an attitude, adopting such a posture of understanding what it means to learn from others in a situation of radical symmetry is going to teach us some fundamental truth about our time - what it means to be living in a global world.
We talk about globalization, but when we talk about globalization what it means mainly is that you have all these financial fluxes and fluxes of goods, etc. What does it mean for us, as human beings to learn to inhabit one single world? It means to inhabit it with our differences and at the same time multiply the richness of such a world by precisely learning how to live together, which means how to get from each other the richness of this world, and the multiplicity of perspectives. So, learning from others would mean one world, but one diverse world.

Jean-Sébastien Grail présente son application MyBlee, destinée à l'apprentissage des mathématiques pour les enfants, une véritable innovation et un outil intéressant pour les enseignants.
« Le numérique c'est juste un outil de plus, ce n'est pas ça qui va révolutionner l'éducation. »
« Le digital est un outil pour l'enseignant. »
« La grande problématique, c'est de s'assurer de la qualité du contenu et de la qualité de l'approche. »
Sophie Pène, du Conseil National du Numérique, nous explique que l'école doit avancer et le fera grâce au web, au numérique et à la recherche.
« L'école avance, elle avance beaucoup, mais elle n'avance pas au rythme du monde. »
« Il y a une sorte d'externalité de l'école, ne serait-ce que parce que le web se constitue, qu'on le veuille ou non, et quoi qu'en pensent certains acteurs, professeurs ou familles, comme un concurrent sourd de l'école. »
« L'école est devenue un univers où l'on désire poser des questions. »
